Buzz 15:18PM EDT

Today is a sad one for fans of classic rock, progressive rock, and the bass guitar in general: Chris Squire was one of the most deft and appreciated players of four string to emerge from the first generation of prog rock bands, and played in every one of Yes's concerts for more than 45 years. He'll miss his first show with the band on August 7 when Yes opens a tour with Toto: Unfortunately, Squire succumbed to leukemia this weekend, shortly after he had announced his first hiatus from group. Yes has long shuffled members but Squire would end up being the one constant, and now the group will have to look deep at itself before it continues touring post-2015. For just a brief overview of Squire's best bass parts, check out the five tracks below from bios massive discography.READ MORE

Toto Announce New Album 'Toto XIV,' Their First in Nine Years [WATCH]

Buzz 16:01PM EDT

Pop rock veterans Toto, best known for their hits "Rosanna" and "Africa," have announced a new album titled "Toto XIV," which is set for release March 24. Though its title implies that this is the 14th Toto studio album, it is actually the 13th — maybe they are counting their 1984 soundtrack for David Lynch's Dune. Though the band's own website states that it is the first Toto album in 10 years, their last album "Falling in Between" was actually released nine years ago in 2006, so maybe they are just not good with numbers. In the album's video trailer — which you can check out below — keyboardist Steve Porcaro insists that the band is not going "through the motions" with "Toto XIV."READ MORE
