Ross Halfin and Rufus Publications have announced the publication of Pete Way By Ross Halfin, a 240-page celebration of UFO’s iconic bass player, containing classic and unseen images by music photographer Ross Halfin, and exclusive new interviews and with Phil Mogg (UFO), Andy Parker (UFO), Neil Carter (UFO), Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Geddy Lee (Rush), Phil Collen (Def Leppard), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Rick Savage (Def Leppard), Slash (Guns N’ Roses), Steve Harris (Iron Maiden), Rick Neilsen (Cheap Trick), Michael Schenker (UFO), Phil Lewis (L.A. GUNS), Gerry Laffy and more, compiled by Mojo writer and author Mark Blake.
Halfin said, “Of all the people I’ve known over the years, Pete could be the funniest and also the most infuriating person. Of all the recent musicians to leave the stage, Pete’s exit hit me the hardest, so I wanted to do this book in his honor with the people that really knew him also sharing their memories. The idea of this book is really to celebrate a friend of mine and for all his faults he was a very funny person and someone I always considered a true friend.”
The book will ship in early December and can be pre-ordered at www.rufuspublications.com.
