So sad!

Only time will tell is one of my favorite songs ever.
Kicking myself for not seeing them when they reunited the Original Asia.

My prayers to his family.

I was worried about this when he said he was not touring because they were changing his treatment. This often indicates it's Hail Mary time. I have the live CD they released a couple of years ago with Howe. I thought it was lacking and uninspired and maybe time for Asia to hang it up. From what I understand, last year was much improved. This is two huge hits to Carl Palmer in less then four months.

I was thinking the same thing when I heard this. Reminded me of when Ronnie James Dio announced something similar, postponing a tour due to treatment.

R.I.P. to one of my favorite vocalists.

Wow John really looked bad towards the end. One good thing, he got married just 2 months ago. At least he had someone by his side.

I never would have recognized him from these pictures. Cancer and the treatments take a ravaging toll on the body.
