Asia Rock Band Live
Asia Band - Asia Rock Band : The first Asia album was really great. I loved the use of synths and guitars to create certain ambience with lots of personality. I'm was a big fan of Geoff Downes during that era. The above photo is a live shot of the band during their first tour. The amount of keyboards and synths Geoff brought along is simply amazing. I don't think any band in the 70's or 80's had that many various synths and keyboards on the road. Above from the left, you can see a Yamaha CS80, Prophet 5, Hammond J-122 organ, Yamaha CP-70B electric grand, two Moog Minimoogs, Fairlight master and slave keyboards, Moog Polymoog, Mellotron, Prophet 10, Solina String Ensemble, Clavinet, Rhodes electric piano, Hammond B-3 organ, and a Moog Liberation. On the floor of the stage you can see John Wetton using a Moog Taurus I bass pedal unit.
