I heard the sad news this morning that we have lost John Wetton to cancer, such a great talent and from all I have heard, a wonderful human being. He leaves behind a long and influential career and an incredibly diverse catalog of music.
John Wetton has always been one of my favorite prog vocalists and bassists, but his work with King Crimson on Red stands out as a highlight for me. Here’s a great live version of “Starless” from a 1974 show. Shit don’t get much better than this.
He’ll be missed.
