Not taking the piss, but which is which? Fripp on the right?
(disclosure: the only Fripp-related album I have is
I love it, but otherwise clueless)
Seeing the two pictures, yes, Fripp on the right.
This is John a couple of years ago…
Jesus H. That puts it in perspective.
Cancer is an evil fucker !!
Yep. Lotta Continua though, as there is no point surrendering to the inevitable unless buried in a mound of coke and hookers.
Their sophomore album “Sniffin’ tits” encapsulated the spirit of '78.
I did have a listen to some popular Uriah Heep Asia and Wishbone ash yesterday
I will have played all of the tracks at concerts probably not the orig recording of any.
He was only 67 years old FFS
Today I have lined up to listen to bandstand by Family, Number the brave by Wishbone ash and King Crimson Larks tongues in aspic. All had Wetton on bass and sometimes vocals.
