To paraphrase Wakeman  back in the 90's when he was still with Yes---one of us now weighs as much as all of us weighed backed in the 70's.Big smile

Actually I saw Yes recently and Squire has lost a bit of the gut since a year ago. Can't say the same for Lake tho......

Chunky or not, I love this guy. Saw him here Austin a couple of years back on his Songs of a Lifetime tour. Lots of fun, everyone was clapping and singing along. A great night to see a great performer.

Hasn't Greg, while still on the "chunky" side, lost a fair bit of weight since that photo was taken? The other thing I've noticed is that his West Country accent appears to be getting much stronger with age. If he's short of a gig he could probably join The Wurzels now....or Robert Fripp in King Crimson.

Yup, he asked for a 160 lb Twinkie and that's what they gave him.  LOL

If they did, I want to see them ... bare and unplugged!
 
Maybe this would take some of the egos out and help the music come alive instead!
Have you seen Lake's photos from the High Voltage show?
 
Gay or straight, do you want to see that bare?  Dead
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

Yeah, a relocation to the Prog Music Lounge would work.
