Former UFO bassist and friend of TheCount.com, Pete Way, has suffered a heart attack, this according to a post by his wife, Jenny, on social media.
Way is currently in the hospital being treated by cardiologists. Blood clots were also discovered in his lungs. Way is fighting, but his exact condition has not yet been updated.
Jenny Way said in a statement: “My husband Pete Way has collapsed after a short business trip to Germany and is currently in hospital. He has had a heart attack and a blood clot has been found on his lung. Needless to say, I am in bits, but Pete is fighting like he always does. We are NOT going to lose another one. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.” h/t blabbermouth
In 2014, Way was given the all-clear after a battle with prostate cancer with which he was diagnosed the previous year.
UFO is perhaps best known for their hit song, “Lights Out.”
