Pete Way / Iconic bass player celebrated in new Ross Halfin book

Ross Halfin is to release a 240 page book celebrating the life of Pete Way this December, through Rufus Publishing.

Compiled by Mark Blake, the book contains many classic and unseen photos by Halfin and features some exclusive new interviews.

Ross told MetalTalk: “Of all the people I’ve known over the years, Pete could be the funniest and also the most infuriating person.

“Of all the recent musicians to leave the stage, Pete’s exit hit me the hardest, so I wanted to do this book in his honour with the people that really knew him also sharing their memories.

“The idea of this book is really to celebrate a friend of mine and for all his faults he was a very funny person and someone I always considered a true friend.”

Interviews include Phil Mogg, Kirk Hammett, Andy Parker, Neil Carter, Ozzy Osbourne, Geddy Lee, Phil Collen, Joe Elliott, Rick Savage, Slash, Steve Harris, Rick Neilson, Michael Schenker, Phil Lewis, Gerry Laffy and more.

There are two editions of the book:

The Standard Edition – A 240 page book, A4 portrait, casebound with a choice of two printed, laminated covers. £59 plus delivery.

The Deluxe Edition – A 264 page book, A3 portrait, casebound with a recycled leather quarter bind and printed cover. The book is personally signed by Ross Halfin and comes complete with a limited edition print. 150 numbered copies worldwide. £350 plus delivery.

Pre-orders start tomorrow, from 3pm, on the Rufus Publishing website.
