Roxy Bassist Dies

01 February 2017

Former Roxy Music bassist John Wetton has lost his battle with cancer.

His website said:

"Rock music legend John Wetton sadly passed away in the early hours of this morning, after a long and courageous battle against colon cancer.

"John valued his over 11 years of sobriety and volunteered time in fellowship with other alcoholics to share his experience, strength and hope with them.

"John is survived by his recently wed wife Lisa and 18 year old son Dylan, brother Robert and mother Peggy 

John's first work in the Roxy camp was on Bryan Ferry's Another Time Another Place album. He worked on many Phil Manzanera albums including their album Wetton Manzanera. John didn't record with Roxy but toured with them on the Country Life tour and also with Bryan Ferry in 1977 on the In Your Mind tour.

On behalf of the many Roxy fans who visit this site I extend our condolences to his family.
