Sad to hear one of my favorite bass players, Pete Way from UFO died today. UFOs live album “Strangers in The Night” is one of the best and I’m grateful that record helped me grow up in music and as a guitar player. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/7v6dK185PL

RIP Pete Way. You were rock n roll, the pretty & the ugly about it. Can’t believe we’ve lost another member of UFO.
I’m doing a tribute to Paul Raymond and Pail Chapman on my call in show t’nite. You too, will be honored.https://t.co/petALGAilC
