Heat of the Moment - Asia? Only Time Will Tell ;-)

John Wetton, Rocker With King Crimson and Asia, Dies at 67
"John Wetton, a bass player, vocalist and songwriter who adapted the dense, progressive rock he performed with bands like King Crimson into mainstream hits with the supergroup Asia in the early 1980s, died on Tuesday near his home in Bournemouth, England. 
He was 67.
His manager, Martin Darvill, said the cause was colon cancer.

The group’s single “Heat of the Moment” reached No. 4 on the Billboard chart. With melodious three-part harmony on its chorus, it has often been compared to anthems like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” and Boston’s “More Than a Feeling.” Another Asia single, “Only Time Will Tell” reached No. 17."
"John Kenneth Wetton was born in Willington, Derbyshire, England, on June 12, 1949, and grew up in Bournemouth. 
He became interested in music after watching his brother play organ in church.
He played with local bands while in high school and, after graduating, moved to London, where he played in the groups Mogul Thrash and Family before joining King Crimson.
He married Lisa Nojain in December. She survives him, as do a son, Dylan, from an earlier relationship; his brother, Robert; and his mother, Margaret Wetton.
Asia’s popularity endured long after the band’s apex in the early 1980s. 
The original group reunited in 2006 and released the album “Phoenix” in 2008."
Let's just hope Trump doesn't do anything in the "heat of the moment" when it comes to Asia this year.
