THE PETE WAY BAND are preparing for their first warm up gig for many years on 5th June in Gravesend before flying out to the SWEDEN ROCK festival which they play on 8th June. SWEDEN ROCK is a heavyweight festival which sees UFO and THE PETE WAY BAND playing at the same time on the same day but different stages. WAY will be including several UFO crowd pleasers as he takes on the vocals including numbers from his re-released solo album “Amphetamine” and his new solo album offering the Mike Clink produced ‘WALKING ON THE EDGE” which sees Slash and Kenny Aronoff guesting.
On their return they will be double headlining with Geezer Butler’s supergroup with Steve Stevens, Matt Sorum and co. Pete’s band features Grand Slam member guitarist Laurence Archer, slide guitarist Tym Scopes, ex-Waysted’s multi-instrumentalist Jason Poole and ex-Wild Horses drummer Clive Edwards.
What do you think the two bass legends will be talking about at soundcheck before their gig at the O2 Islington on 13th June. Avid animal lover WAY was impressed by BUTLER speaking out about outlawing the practice of declawing cats (he has two) but as well as that they are the biggest Aston Villa fans on the planet. WAY says “I know Geezer from years of Black Sabbath and Ozzy but, more often than not we bump into each other at the “Park” whilst praying at the altar of Aston Villa no doubt.
