Asia – Heat of the Moment [Video]
Asia, there first album (self titled) was huge in 1982. It was the top selling album that year in the US. With 3 huge hits: “Heat of the Moment”, “Only Time Will Tell” and “Sole Survivor”, it’s no wonder.
Asia was formed in 1981. The band consisted of: John Wetton, lead vocals and bass. John formerly played with “Roxy Music” and “Uriah Heep”. Carl Palmer, drums, formerly with “Emerson Lake & Palmer”. Steve Howe, lead guitar and Geoff Downes, keyboard, both formerly from “Yes”.
As usual, too many line up changes took it’s toll on the band. That’s unfortunate. This band had the potential to rock for years. Their 14th album “Valkyrie” is set to be released this year. Too bad they had 12 other albums that received little air play. Good thing, we got to enjoy the first one and it was awesome.
