I remember the first time I heard Asia in high school. They stood out from everything else on the radio at that time. We lost their voice yesterday after a lengthy battle with colon cancer. Lead singer of Asia, co-founder of King Crimson, Prog-Rock TITAN and contributing member of Mogul Thrash, Family, Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry, Uriah Heep, WIshbone Ash and more. The acoustic version of an Asia favorite seems to say it all...
We regret to announce that iconic singer, John Wetton, passed away in his sleep this morning.— Original Asia (@originalasia) January 31, 2017
Rest in Peace, John.

Its been a tough couple years for Carl Palmer, who lost both Keith Emerson (3/11/16) and Greg Lake (12/7/16). He issued a tribute to his friend on Facebook.
We need to appreciate the greats while we have them When you get an opportunity to head out and see them perform, peel yourself away from the TV and computer. Get out there and make a lasting memory.
