Phil Mogg still hopes that the bassist will be OK to rejoin the band at some point
Pete Way has been unable to tour with UFO since 2009, and he has not appeared on either of their most recent studio albums due to ongoing health problems.
However, Phil Mogg has revealed that he hopes to once again see Way return to the band at some point.
Mogg told Relix.com: "We’re hanging on hope. I don’t know whether or not he will be able to return. I see him down the road here. There’s a small studio on the beachfront and he’s doing something with a guy from the Damned.
"But every time I say, ‘Hey, how’s Pete doing?’ I get a nonplussed reply like, ‘Well, he seems okay, blah blah blah.’
"Whether or not he rejoins the band, I’m hoping he pulls back from the abyss.”
