News Confirmed By Band

It is with heavy hearts that we have just learned that Paul Raymond, longtime guitarist and keyboardist for UFO, passed away this past Saturday as a result of a heart attack. The news was broken by his life partner Sandra who made the post on Facebook.

Sandra details that “The doctors were trying to reanimate him and with success at first but then his system shot down again and there was nothing more they could do for him, he died of a heart attack.”


Shortly after, the band made their own statement upon sharing Sandra’s post…

Life And Legacy…

Starting originally as a jazz musician, Paul actually got his start playing with Plastic Penny and even replacing Christine McVie in British blues band Chicken Shack. In 1976 he was recruited to replace Danny Peyronel in UFO. He has played off and on with the band ever since.

He is regarded as one of the most versatile and prolific musicians in the entire rock & roll scene. Hardly a single band/artist has gone without paying tribute to this amazing man and musician…

Other Tributes…

RIP Paul Raymond

It simply goes without saying that this man was without a doubt one of the most iconic and influential musicians in all of rock & roll. He has a style that was often imitated, yet never duplicated. He was one of the absolute best pure and simple.

To say that he was a pillar to the world of rock & roll is an understatement. Needless to say he was, is, and always will be a legend. RIP Paul Raymond, you will be missed…
