Peter Banks

I was sad to hear about the untimely passing of Peter Banks, Yes's first guitarist. Although Steve Howe is recognised as taking the Yes sound into its most successful period, it was Banks who set the foundations for the Yes sound. His guitar playing was distinctly rock in tone put with a subtle jazzy colouring. I really enjoyed his work on those early Yes albums, with his band Flash and the solo album "Two Sides of Peter Banks". Thanks Pete!
