Bassist Barry Sparks Comments On UFO Tour

Bassist extraordinaire Barry Sparks (Dokken, ex-MSG, Ted Nugent) has commented on the reports that he will be filling in for UFO bassist Pete Way on the band's upcoming U.S. tour after Way was denied a working visa "due to having overstayed the number of days he was there on his last visit."

Says Sparks: "Well, what can I say... my good pal and bass-buddy, Mr. Rocknroll himself, Pete Way, sadly did not did not get his work permit for the UFO tour dates in America. I am honoured to have been asked to step into his shoes for the American shows. I'm a big fan of UFO and have worked with them before, at Donington in 2001. I've also worked with [current UFO guitarist] Vinnie Moore. OK, so I call it 'work' but really it was all fun fun FUN! I'm looking forward to meeting y'all out on the road with UFO. Bring your friends along too, and make lots of noise!"
