This year keeps getting worse. Pete Way, one of the “characters” of metal and fellow @AVFCOfficial supporter has passed. He supported Deadland Ritual on the show in London. Very funny man. RIP Pete.

The English rock band  Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott said:

I’m heartbroken at the news of the passing of our old friend #PeteWay especially coming so close to that of Paul Raymond & Paul Chapman. I’d known Pete since 1980 when I went to see UFO & Girl play at the Sheffield City Hall & were mates ever since. RIP my friend.

The American rock band Tesla said:

I’m very sad today. My pal Pete Way has died. He was my hero when I was a kid I wanted to be just like him. To this day I still play my Gibson Thunderbird because of him. We became very good friends And every time I saw him he would always make me laugh. I’m glad I got to see him last year. RIP my dear friend Don’t chase to much trouble up there

Love ya man
