--- I was late to the previous Asia conversation but I figured some may find this interesting so re-posting under it's it's own post. ---

Yes, an American band called Asia! The supergroup's manager Brian Lane was aghast these plebians wouldn't just hand over the rights to the name Asia and actually wanted monetary recompense for their trademarked name!

It's a fun story and I own the 2 on 1 cd version of their 2 albums - 1979's Asia and 1980's Armed To the Teeth

Induction into the South Dakota Hall Of Fame in 2019.

The history including dealing with Brian Lane & Carl Palmer as well as the band's work pre (as Whitewater) and post (as Solomon Kane)
