Hard rock band UFO have bid goodbye to one of their founding members and bassist, Pete Way.

The artist passed away at the age of 69 on Friday, August 14 due to physical repercussions faced as a result of an accident that occurred two months ago; "He sustained life threatening injuries in an accident two months ago," explained a post announcing the tragic news on the official Facebook page of the musician.

He "fought hard until finally succumbing to those injuries at 11.35am BST today," the post continued. "His wife, Jenny, was at his side."

Way formed the band in the year 1968 alongside vocalist Phil Mogg, guitarist Mick Bolton, and drummer Andy Parker.

In an interview with AntiHero in 2019, Way shared that he pretends not to be old, "but you look back and you go, you can't, sort of not count the years. I don't know. I've had a unique opportunity to play with some very good people."
