Pete Way Band
Pete Way has established himself as a much-loved and highly regarded figure among rock fans, critics and fellow musicians alike.
Best known for his work with UFO, Pete’s energetic live performances were at the heart of the band’s countless world tours, and his melodic basslines underpinned the catalogue of enduring Rock classics upon which UFO’s reputation and legacy are founded.
Indeed, in a recent radio interview, Pete attributed the band’s ability to weather changes in the musical landscape (UFO had a Top 30 album in the UK at the height of punk), and in the band’s line-up over the years, to the strength of their songs. The briefest glance at the songwriting credits of any of the albums recorded during the band’s 70s/80s peak period, many of which attained high chart positions in both the UK and US charts, will show just how significant Pete’s contribution to the style and sound that appealed, and continues to appeal, to generations of Rock fans around the world; fan favourites such as “Too Hot To Handle”, “Lights Out” and “Shoot Shoot” all bear the hallmarks of Pete’s signature songwriting style, and are cornerstones of the band’s live set to this day.
Pete is currently about to release his latest solo album, “Walking On The Edge”, sees him adding to a peerless catalogue of classic Hard Rock songs, with fresh material bearing all the trademarks of the melodic, memorable style for which he is known.
