Pete Way Taking A Break From UFO


February 2, 2009

2009 is shaping up to be a busy time for UFO, what with the studio sessions in Germany (where they’re recording the new album, due out later this year), and also the forthcoming tours and festival shows which are being booked right now.

But amidst all the good news, the band also need to share some other news with you.

For a while now, Pete Way has been dealing with a medical condition which affects his liver, and he’s currently undergoing treatment to cure it. The medication he’s on makes him tired and dizzy, and he feels that taking part in the recording sessions and the hectic touring schedule would be too much for him at the moment, so he’ll be taking some time out from UFO until he is match-fit.

But as we all know with Pete, he won’t be able to stay away from rocknroll for long – so it’s very likely that he’ll be doing a few gigs here and there with Waysted.

UFO wish him the very best and hope for a swift and full recovery.

We love ya Pete! Get well soon man.
