John Wetton the bassist and singer for Asia has died aged 67 after a battle with cancer.
Wetton was also a former member of King Crimson and U.K.
He struggled with a number of health issues over the last few years including a struggle with alcoholism that he openly acknowledged and a heart condition that required surgery and the postponement of a 2007 tour.
More recently Wetton went public with his cancer diagnosis, which forced him to pull out of Asia’s scheduled tour dates with Journey so he could undergo chemotherapy.
