Re: RIP John Wetton


I'm almost getting numb to all my heroes dying. King Crimson in '73 and '74 is about the only band that can stand toe-to-toe with Deep Purple in my book. Such a talented bass player, singer, and songwriter. And then to think about all the other great bands he played in as well.

The last few years have really been hard on the giants of bass guitar if you think about it. We've lost Jack Bruce, Greg Lake, John Gustafson, Chris Squire, Trevor Bolder, Kelly Groucutt, and now Wetton. It's so sad.

...its not going to get any better either, sadly emoticon

I absolutely loved Wetton's voice. So much power behind it and his bass playing was great as well.

Like Kinski said, I'm almost becoming numb to it.
