The late Peter Banks was the original guitarist in Yes. Here is the first track from their first album, (this rendition being live in Paris, ’69). Peter also played all guitars on the second Yes LP, ‘Time and a Word’. Sadly, there are now two Yes members who are no longer with us, as Chris Squire passed away on 27th of June, 2015. Peter would have been 72 today.
