John Wetton sings classics

It’s well known that John Wetton is a fan of classic rock, those songs that made him a part of it all, although he rarely gets to delivering them either live or in a studio, one regular exclusion being Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower” which he’s been playing for some years when he joined Steve Hackett on stage. Of course, there was the JACK-KNIFE project that saw post-U.K. John do blues and rock ‘n’ roll numbers, and for-fans-only document of his convention appearance, where Wetton did THE BEACH BOYS’ “God Only Knows,” his personal favorite. Yet both aforementioned pieces made the set of THE LES PAUL TRIO on October 14th, 2013, when the ASIA vocalist fronted them at New York’s “Iridium” club, and it’s this recording that is scheduled for March 2nd, before embarking on other concert projects including the “Rock Meets Classic” orchestral arena tour.
