R.I.P. John Wetton (King Crimson/Asia)


John Wetton passed away a few days ago, age 67.  While I never listened to Asia, I was a fan of the mid-70's small version of King Crimson (Lark's Tongue in Aspic, Red, Starless and Bible Black and the live USA LP).  He was a fine writer, vocalist and bassist.  As usual, there's a pretty complete article in the New York Times obit section if you're interested.

Thanks for bringing attention to this.  I enjoyed Asia, even my Dad liked their songs. ..... makes me smile.  Great voice just like Greg Lake ( ELP ) who was also a member and who also passed away just last year!  RIP John.

One of my favorite voices - I liked everything he did, though Asia was a bit too "pop" for me. Those King Crimson albums he was on are my favorites by KC.
Add to an impressive career his work in the band, U.K. (alongside some other noteworthy talents).

Loved Him. His work with the later King Crimson as Tostadounidos says were really grounbreaking records. It was a really exciting time, and nobody was doing what they did. I will miss this man but will continue to enjoy his art.
