ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
One of the most iconic rock musicians of all time- bassist Pete Way continues to forge ahead every though he has the reputation of being a veteran druggie, alcoholic, and veteran womanizer but what the heck- why be a rock-and-roll star if one is unable to indulge in the things that makes the musician’s lifestyle worthwhile. Ah, well, that said, the talented rocker released his next solo album, “Amphetamine” on April 13, 2000. Joining the powerhouse bass player/vocalist are Scott Phillips (drums), and Walt James (guitars/backing vocals). Fans of UFO and of Way love this album just as much as we do which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out at wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be extremely glad you did. We guarantee it.
