The entire air staff at The New 107.1 The Boss offers our sincerest condolences to YES guitarist Steve Howe on the tragic loss of his younger son, Virgil.
The band has announced that the remaining dates of the group’s “Yestival” tour has been cancelled.
Virgil, a drummer for the British power-pop band Little Barrie– also played keyboards for his father’s 1993 album, The Grand Scheme of Things. His death comes on the heels of the arrival of the album, Nexus, an instrumental album featuring father and son. He was 41.
