    Just saw a note on District 97's Facebook feed: Due to a new chemotherapy treatment he's undergoing this year, John Wetton will be unable to fly. He's going to miss performing on Cruise To The Edge, and he'll also have to miss the Asia tour.

    And apparently Billy Sherwood will be filling in for him on the Asia tour.
  2. I read his Facebook message. He said he was only missing the first twelve dates of the Asia tour, opening for Journey, because he can't fly while receiving treatment.

    Damn, that's a disappointment. But hell, I ain't gonna complain about seeing Billy Sherwood in Eugene in March when I see Asia open for Journey. He's a bad mofo!

    I hope he gets well soon. We cannot lose another Prog bass Titan in as many years.

    Wishing nothing but the best for Mr. Wetton. I follow him on twitter and he recently posted a Christmas photo of himself and Robert Fripp. He looked about 100lbs lighter than last time i saw him play live. Not gaunt or necessarily sickly, just very thin. Such a fantastic musician, I really hope he can beat this.
