John Wetton, the legendary bass player with King Crimson and a whole generation of prog bands has died at the age of 67 after losing his battle with cancer.

 

His website said “Rock music legend John Wetton sadly passed away in the early hours of this morning, after a long and courageous battle against colon cancer.

“John valued his over 11 years of sobriety and volunteered time in fellowship with other alcoholics to share his experience, strength and hope with them.

“John is survived by his recently wed wife Lisa and 18 year old son Dylan, brother Robert and mother Peggy.”
