Original Article By Zippo · 1 May 2019 ·

Paul Raymond, the keyboardist and guitarist from rock legends UFOpassed away earlier today at the age of 73. UFO recently concluded their tour in UK and Ireland.

The news broke out this morning (April 13, 2019) his partner Sandra with a Facebook post, saying:

Hi to all the fans and people who knew Paul! This is Sandra, Paul’s life partner speaking: With a desperate and broken heart, fully in tears and pains that feel like they will kill me I have to tell you that my most beautiful and beloved darling Paul Raymond has passed away today. The doctors we’re 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.

He absolutely enjoyed the last couple of weeks touring with UFO in the UK & Ireland and he was looking forward to the rest of this year’s tour.

I will always love him and I hope he will rest in piece until I’ll see him again on the other side!!!

I love you so much Paul 💔😪 Sandra

The English rock band began in 1968 and helped fuel the transition of hard rock into heavy metal. Paul Raymond joined the group in 1976 and remained with them (with a short break in the middle) until the time of his death.
