 John Wetton at AllExperts
John Wetton (born June 12, 1949 in Derbyshire, England) is an English singer, bassist and guitarist.
Wetton was initially known for his powerful bass guitar sound and improvisational abilities (as evidenced on King Crimson's The Great Deceiver live box set and other sources), although his recorded output since at least 1980 has been more commercially-oriented.
Wetton's recorded highlights include King Crimson's Larks' Tongues In Aspic (1973), UK's self-titled album (1978) and Asia's self-titled album (1982), the last of which was the biggest seller of his career.

 John Wetton - Amorata
What seems a little frustrating is that John is kind of obliged to play a lot of the old favourites time after time which in turn means he can deliver very little solo material.
Here especially John Mitchell shines in all his technical excellence although it has to be said that all four musicians deliver an outstanding performance.
Looking at John Wetton’s recent CD output I do hope he’s not getting into the footsteps of Asia where it has become impossible for any fan in the world to have his or her collection complete.

Although John Wetton is at the helm throughout all of these tracks, King's Road, 1972-1980 is really a collaboration of progressive rock artists that have joined Wetton across each of the 13 songs.
Wetton's renditions of songs by his former bands King Crimson and UK come off quite clean and refined, especially "As Long As You Want Me Here" from 1979's Night After Night Live album and the opening "Nothing to Lose" off Danger Money.
Born Gary Weinrib on July 29, 1953, in Toronto, his parents migrated from Europe to Canada and got his nickname "Geddy" from when his mother would try to pronounce "Gary" in her accent.

 John Wetton - Rock Of Faith (CD Album Review)
In the liner notes of "Rock Of Faith", John refers to his prior three releases as a trilogy.
And though it's a thrill that John's teamed up with his former (Asia) bandmate and writing partner Geoffrey Downes or that he's produced the album with Arena's Clive Nolan and Karl Groom; I think he could have pulled it off any way he'd have wanted to.
I sincerely hope that this is the beginning of a new decennium of wonderful John Wetton recordings.

 John Wetton - Rock Of Faith
Like Sinister, his previous album, this John Wetton album is out on IQ GEP label.
Rock Of Faith has the well-known John Wetton timbre, a voice known from having sung in King Crimson, UK and Asia, all important bands for the progressive genre as we know it (KC's Red and UK's Danger Money are classics in my book).
But these days have gone and Wetton is now in the GEP stable turning out songoriented albums (I remember him saying that Fripp always succeeded in turning a simple song into something complicated).

In the liner notes, "Please" appears to have a copyright note of 2000, which makes me think it was from the aborted Asia reunion of 1999, in which Wetton and Downes wrote a few new songs, but I could be wrong.
Hopefully, if there is more stuff on the shelf that John and Geoff recorded that can someday be released, they get around to releasing it soon.
As songwriting teams go, John Wetton and Geoffrey Downes may never rate comparisons to Lennon/McCartney or Jagger/Richards, but during the 1980s this duo racked up an impressive string of hits while teamed in the supergroup Asia.
