Some tragic news to report regarding the family of Yes and Asia keyboardist Geoff Downes .  The veteran prog-rock musician has revealed in a post on his official website that his youngest daughter, Alexandra , has died.

In the message, Downes writes, "I am deeply grateful for all the messages of sympathy and support we have received following the tragic death of my beloved and irreplaceable youngest daughter."

He adds, "I will be honoring all professional commitments, but in the meantime I humbly request that my family, my loved ones and I be afforded privacy and time in which we can grieve and be as one with our thoughts."

Alexandra was one of the two daughters that Horn fathered with his first wife, former Norwegian model Wenche Steen . 

Downes' next scheduled concert is slated to take place with Yes on March 1 in West Wendover, Nevada.
