The passing of yet another great musician from my much mis-spent youth, John Wetton hit the news today. A former member of King Crimson, Family, Wishbone Ash, Uriah Heep and founder of the supergroup Asia (featured in the video below), John was a major contributor to once great British music scene before all these talentless wannabes started appearing on X-Factor and the like.

A sad loss for his family friends and fans alike.

RIP John. You will be missed. Thanks for all the great music.


  1. It's Wetton, Howie. No h. A huge loss. The incarnation of King Crimson he sang and played bass in was incredibly influential and quite brilliant. Check out Starless from the album Red.

  2. Opps. Corrected. Will check out the track you recommend. Cheers Steve.
