John Wetton is recovering after undergoing surgery a statement on Johnís website has announced:
On May 16, John underwent surgery for the successful removal of a 1 kilo [2.2lb] malignant mass. John wishes to extend his thanks to Mr Chan and his team. John is also beyond grateful for the wonderful wishes and prayers received. John is recuperating. Messages can be sent via the management office to jw@qedg.co.uk

Iím sure all visitors to this site wish John a speedy recovery.

John is also the featured interviewee on Charles Hazlewoodís exploration of progressive rock on BBC Radio 2 this week.

Johnís work with King Crimson, UK and Asia are detailed and he talks about the influence of church music on his musical development , the arrival of technicolor in music (hearing The Beach Boysí God Only Knows on the radio for the first time), the pros and cons of ubiquity, and the importance of being an aerial when it comes to writing music.

The show is available on the BBCís iPlayer for another 29 days.
Bill Brufordís contribution to the show is still available and an interview with  Genesisí Tony Banks can be found here.

Mister Stormy's Tuesday Giveaway
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jan 27, 2015
OK - this should have gone up yesterday but the hamster running the wheel that generates the steam to crank up my internet connection futzed out on me. There being no rabbit to hand and a very reluctant cat very much intent on not being herded into said wheel, Stormy Mundy's Monday Selection had to wait 24 hours until the hamster could be sufficiently resuscitated. So here it is, Mister Stormy's Monday Selection on a Tuesday: The Night Watch unedited performance from Glasgow 1973.

Fripp For Homework
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jan 25, 2015
My thanks to Sean H for sending in this link from The Guardian in which Robert Fripp's music is recommended as an aide to studying and homework. "The whole idea is not to let the head drop. Brian Eno may be an obvious choice, but letís throw in his one-time collaborator, the magnificent Robert Fripp as another option. His At The End Of Time album is a masterstroke: he creates a symphony in sound, and takes you on a trip intense enough to get any piece of work rocking in the right direction. Check out Cerys Mathew's piece in full here.
