I've just checked to find that there have been 19 full-time musicians in Jon's group Yes. A little strange that - I thought there were 20.

I'm most upset to have read whilst trying to re-buy an album I used to have called 'Fish Out of Water', by co-founding member of Yes, that bass player Chris Squire, passed away over 5 years ago at the age of 67, from leukaemia. Chris was the only member of Yes to have played on every one of their 21 studio albums. I saw him play at Hammersmith Odeon when they did their 'Drama' tour in 1980, one which did not include Jon Anderson or Rick Wakeman. He was a tall fellow and I've just found his height was 193cm. Chris was a songwriter and vocalist as well, sounding very similar to Jon Anderson.

RIP Chris Squire 🕯️ XXX

@Rob- What is Jon's peak height based on your own perspective ? 5ft6 , 5ft5 1/2" or 5ft5 ?
Editor Rob
It is possible a bit over 5ft 5 and today under half inch.

🎶 I was playing some of Jon's music yesterday morning, from when he teamed up with the 6ft Greek musician, Vangelis. Both were sitting down and it was a performance they did on Top of the Pops, called 'I'll Find My Way Home', which means a lot to me.

🎶 Thanks for giving him a page, Rob! I've been a fan of Yes since I was 15, and did at one stage have all their albums. I knew Jon wasn't unduly tall. He would wear long flowing sleeves onstage and his music was some of the best progressive rock I've heard. It's hard to choose a favourite album; I like 'Tales From Topographic Oceans', 'Fragile', 'The Yes Album' and so it goes on. They're all brilliant and many of the members of Yes have done solo projects too.

🎶 Lovely to see Jon on Celebheights! I'd read he's 5ft5 myself, so that's what goes in the box....

Whether Jon was as tall as his 5ft 6 claim (peak) is hard to tell.
