Rest Easy John Wetton

Bassist, singer and songwriter John Wetton has passed away in his sleep following a long fight with cancer at the age of 67

I first became aware of him as a teenager when the first Asia album came out, later I discovered his earlier work. 
Wonderful voice and a sad loss.
Rest easy.


  1. I heard him first in Mogul Trash playing some excellent somewhat Jack Bruce inspired bass. And later on in perhaps the best King Crimson line-up. An impressive, progressive bassist and an excellent and expressive vocalist.

  2. I hadn't heard. First met him on Lark's Tongues in Aspic. Sad news.
