    Default ASIA

    Just learned that the original line up of ASIA is planning a reunion and tour later this year. This comes on the heals of the most recent line up (with John Payne) parting ways with Geoff Downes. There is info on the ASIA Website, as well as on Geoff Downes's Website.

    ASIA had some decent tunes in their time - "Heat Of The Moment", "Only Time Will Tell" and another one I can't think of without looking it up.

    Well I loved Asia's first album and played it to death back in the day. T/G Scum's got it playin as well. I went and bought their greatest hits but it was missing some of tunes I liked from the album.

    Wetton and Downes have never really been ''enemies" of sorts...they've performed together on occasion in the past....but I think it's the full time there's a full reunion of (most of) the original members...which is cool. I've followed (as much as one can) John Wetton and Geoff Downes' solo careers...they did some cool stuff...I believe Wetton did the acoustic version of "Heat Of The Moment" that blew away a lot of people at one of the festivals in Europe a few years back...

    I did see a bit about this yesterday in a story on Steve Howe on Billboard.com:

    And in the fall, Howe will join Carl Palmer, John Wetton and Geoff Downes for a 25th anniversary tour of the original lineup of Asia -- which he notes could lead to some new recording as well.
