Guitarist Peter Banks, a founding member of the band Yes, has died at his home in London at the age of 65.

Banks, who was born in Barnet on July 15th 1947, became a mainstay of the progressive rock world after recording two albums with Yes — their self-titled debut release in 1969, followed by Time And A Word in 1970.

It was announced on Banks’s website that he had died on March 7th, and was found in his home after he failed to show up for a recording session.

A statement from fellow Yes band members said: “We are deeply saddened to learn about the passing of fellow bandmate and founding Yes member, Peter Banks. He was a huge piece of the fabric that made Yes what it is, and our thoughts, sincere condolences and prayers are with him and his family. Peter, we shall miss you greatly.”
