“Literally, as my tribute to UFO show on Planet Rock radio was being broadcast, the news broke that Paul Raymond, their keyword player of many many years sadly died of a heart attack …They had just finished a very well received UK & Irish tour which was to be their last as Phil Mogg had announced his retirement from the band. It’s seems that things have come to a very sad & premature end. I’ve been saying for a long time now that a lot of our heroes are reaching an age where this sort of thing happens, but it’s still a shock when it does, very, very sad ….
RIP Paul Raymond .. Joe Elliott
Today we are too shell-shocked to write anything other than to share Sandra's post at the link below.
