It(still)hurts,  So bad.
What can I say? My position is clear!

I've spent a lot of the last day or so reading through some of these posts again. It has been a long time.

The John Wetton Guestbook was SPECIAL. This was an honestly sacred place for his fans to meet. I did follow John over to Twitter, where he kind of slowly gravitated towards from 2014 onward... but it never fully took the place of this for me. (I DID love a lot of the photos he shared on Twitter, though, so for that I REALLY enjoyed it.)

The JW Guestbook just finally became so "quiet" here.... as everyone else left, so finally did I. But "finding" this again, years of posts still intact, has been deeply enjoyable. It was an unexpected pleasure to find a lot of John's spirit still visible for us here.

REST IN PEACE, John. As Tyler W. said, it still hurts so much...  I just can't articulate it to an outsider. John Wetton was my hero in music - and as I came to see here, and meeting him in person, just a really decent and humble (and HARD WORKING) man. An IMMENSE vocal talent, and such an INTELLIGENT songwriter... and one hell of a sense of humor.

"NEVER AGAIN"....... you get one of these artists ONCE in a lifetime. 

Yesterday would have been the maestro's 69th birthday. You are missed, John Wetton.

you are writing out of the middle my heart.

I loved the familiar atmosphere here in Johns guestbook. I often ask myself, why it is so quiet here now…… John is no longer here. But why do leave all guestbookers?

Some weeks ago I had an update on to my ASIA tattoo. I wear the “eyes” on the left rib under my heard. You will find a pic in one of the two tattoo-threads. I just gave my eyes a fresh color and changed nothing else. First I wanted to add the tear ….. but decided against it. I want to keep it alive. During the doing of the tattoo I had a lot of scenes of concerts, backstage meetings and meet and greets in my head……so sad.

When cleaning up my wardrobe some weeks ago I found the Donald-Shirt I only have worn only “front-row”. I held it in my hands…..not knowing what to do with it now… No chance to wear it again. No way to throw it away. So much emotions and memories exploded in my mind in a part of a second.

Yesterday the football world-cup started. Do you remember the discussions? Johns Three Lions. My German “Mannschaft”.  Even the American guest booker began to watch matches…… And now? Silence.

Yes Agent, yes Tyler; you are not alone; I miss him too!

Greetings from Germany!
