UFO became a transitional group between early hard rock, heavy metal and the N.W.O.B.H.M. (New Wave of British Heavy Metal). Formed in 1969, UFO members have included guitarist Michael Schenker from the Scorpions and vocalist Phil Mogg. 


During the early eighties Pete Way also formed Waysted with the debut album VICES, released in 1982 reaching #78 in the UK charts.

Rock Legend News: You’ve been given a clean bill of health recently. Congratulations! That is the best news. Your fans anxiously await more of Pete Way’s magic. What is in store for us?

Pete Way: I am just putting the finishing touches to my new album “Walking On The Edge” with Guns n Roses producer Mike Clink. We’ve been in a fabulous studio owned by John Parr in Yorkshire and Mike flew over from LA to the supervise the recording. The album is a blend of hard rock but intense songs from the heart. It’s based on my life story actually which has been pretty colourful as I’m sure you are aware. I am hoping to be able to release this early in 2015.

Rock Legend News: You started playing at a very young age. Aside from aligning yourself with exceptionally talented musicians, what has been your approach to music and who has been most influential to you or originally caused you to say, “That’s what I want to do.”
