Mike Portnoy was asked to put together a tribute to Chris Squire, and did he ever.
The base band was the Neal Morse Band, with some special guests.
I am personally not mush of a Yes fan. The only era of Yes I like is the Trevor Rabin era,
so I was glad that that era was not skipped.
It was a nice calm evening, but once again, the sound was all over the place,
except for right by the mixing desk. So that's where I hung out!
