    This post celebrates the life of singer, bassist, vocalist & songwriter John Wetton. He passed away sometime last Tues nite, 1-31-17. I am a big music freak and he was one of my many favorites.

    1st is King Crimson. He joined in 1972 and was on those 4 albums. The heaviest period for that band. 1972-74.

    2nd is Uriah Heep(75-76) & his 1st solo album(1980) & a collaboration with Phil Manzenara(1987).

    3rd is U.K. A great prog rock band some might not be aware of. 1978-80.

    4th is Asia. the early 8o's supergroup. 1982-85.

    These are most of the records I have with him. I also have them on CD as well.(and probably some on cassette tape). He has many other solo music projects as well. Another note is that all of these bands are still going in some form . A true testament to musical talent.

    Music is life.

      Music is Life - thank you iggy. I remember Uriah Heep. And I loved King Crimson.

      John Wetton was one of my favorites. I think his flying brick wall bass made that my favorite version of King Crimson. UK was probably the best prog band of that time period.
      A fine salute to John Wetton.

      Thank you valentino97, fortapache & brunswick all for the nice comments. Very appreciated!

      That period of King Crimson is also my favorite.

      Thomas I believe you are talking about the album 'Look At Yourself'?
