Inför Sweden Rock 2019: Intervju med Pete Way Band

19 Shares

Med årets festival krypandes närmare går Rocknytts intervjuserie ”Inför Sweden Rock 2019” vidare. Näst på tur är Pete Way som Rocknytts Andreas Östlund fick ställa några frågor till.

Slå upp ordet “rockstjärna” i ordboken och du finner en bild av Pete Way intill. Denne legendariske basist är främst känd som en del av UFO:s klassiska sättning (och från de flesta av deras sättningar), och har därutöver ett förflutet hos bland andra Ozzy Osbourne, Fastway och givetvis hans eget Waysted. Pete har varit djupt saknad av många sedan han av hälsoskäl drog sig tillbaka från UFO 2008, och det är oss ett sant nöje att hälsa honom – och hans repertoar av klassiker – välkomna tillbaka.

This is the first time Pete Way will play all alone on SRF. How does it feel to get up on that stage?
– Exciting but due to the amount of time since I played live (9 years) it’s more than usually nerve wracking. But my band is second to none and I have a great belief that we will put on a good performance.



Do you have any of your own special memories from SRF?
– I’ve never played the Sweden Rock Festival before, but I have played Sweden many times with UFO and Waysted and have always had a warm reception. Swedish fans are the best in the world!

What’s is Pete Way’s thoughts about the SRF setlist?
– I’ve chosen Festival numbers to play and sing. Some UFO crowd pleasers, a few Waysted numbers and songs from my solo album ‘Amphetamine’, my new album ‘Walking On The Edge’ and the album I recorded with Michael Schenker called ‘The Plot’. Something for everyone!

Which bands would you not miss yourself at the festival?
– To be honest I will be so busy preparing for my set I probably won’t get to see anyone. It will be interesting to have UFO performing on a different stage at the same time.

Will you play any other festivals in 2019?
– As many as possible. We are playing the Rock and Blues Festival in the UK in July and Winterstorm in November. I enjoy playing at Festivals – I’m used to playing in front of a big audience and enjoy it.

What’s the plan for the band in the near future?
– To play live as much as possible. Promoting my new album “Walking On The Edge” and re-releasing a vinyl Special Edition of ‘Amphetamine’.

Finally, I would like to know what is Pete Way’s favorite song to perform live?
– A stomping rock ‘n’ roll anthem “I Might As Well Go Drinking”, a collaboration with Michael Schenker from the album “The Plot”.
