“With the passing of my good friend and musical collaborator, John Wetton, the world loses yet another musical giant. John was a gentle person who created some of the most lasting melodies and lyrics in modern popular music. As a musician, he was both brave and innovative, with a voice that took the music of ASIA to the top of the charts around the world. His ability to triumph over alcohol abuse made him an inspiration to many who have also fought that battle. For those of us who knew him and worked with him, his valiant struggle against cancer was a further inspiration. I will miss his talent, his sense of humor and his infectious smile. May you ride easy, my old friend.”

have in their homes. The fact that I can donate a substantial share of the proceeds to help these great charity organizations makes this endeavor even more fulfilling.” says Palmer. “ It is my intention to continue with these charity driven art events until both my art collections have sold out. I can’t think of a better way to share my art with the public.”
