Topic: R.I.P. John Wetton

I just found out that British bass player John Wetton passed away from cancer on January 31, 2017, at the age of 67 years old. John's expansive career included time with King Crimson, Roxy Music, Family, Uriah Heep, Wishbone Ash, and Asia. He also collaborated with many others musicians, and was often a featured guest performer on-stage playing bass guitar and providing lead vocals. He was truly a great one.

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Another great gone. Carl Palmer must be thinking he's getting to be last man standing.
RIP John and thanks.

Re: R.I.P. John Wetton

You're probably right, Arkady.

Carl is 66 now, keyboardist Geoff Downes is 64, and guitarist Steve Howe will be 70 in April. He could understandably be thinking, "All the great ones are dead, and I don't feel so good myself."
