RIP John!
He not only was the singer for King Crimson and Asia. He also was the co-founder of UK.

R.I.P. John Wetton

I was really hoping for one more Asia album....damn! Now, the last song on the last Asia album, "Till We Meet Again." seems apropos.

Thank you John for all the music that touched my soul.

Re: John Wetton Has Passed

Another kick in the teeth. Probably my most favorite version of King Crimson with John Wetton and Bill Bruford. What a perfect band. R. I. P.
