John Wetton Photo Tribute

​John Wetton, singer, bassist and founding member of Asia, died on January 31, 2017 from colon cancer at the age of 67.

His death came three weeks after he announced that he would sit out the band’s winter tour with Journey in order to undergo more chemotherapy. But he vowed to be back on stage this year. In the spring of 2015, Wetton had a 2.2-pound cancerous growth removed from his abdomen.

John Wetton is survived by his wife Lisa, his son Dylan, his brother and mother.
