Pete Way Receives Good News In Cancer Fight

(Classic Rock) Pete Way has this week been given the all-clear after a battle with prostate cancer and he says his experience has left him more ashamed than ever of his drug-addled past.

The former UFO, Ozzy Osbourne and Waysted bassist was diagnosed last year after he went to the doctor complaining of blood in his urine. It was that early decision to seek medical help that Way credits with saving his life.

But support group sessions left him thinking again about the fabled drug-fuelled antics of his past. Way tells TeamRock: "I met some amazing people during my treatment. I had radiotherapy and all that stuff, and I'll never be able to listen to an addict again tell me how hard it is to stop using. I'd say, 'You're f***ing mad - just come down to the cancer club to put it all into perspective.' I'm ashamed when I think of the things I did, testing every drug you can imagine." More from Pete
