Born in Athens Greece and raised in California, Pete injured his back in a motorcycle accident when he was 18. He always loved banging on drum sets and was a natural at it so he decided that if he ever walked again what he really felt a passion for was "Play Drums" ! He healed up and quickly developed his drumming skills and began recording and performing on the top 40 and original club circuit in the S.F. Bay Area. After moving to Hollywood and graduating from Musicians Institute he started doing gigs and session work on a number of Rock, Pop, and Blues records and demos. Pete has performed on Cruise Ships and National and International Tours with name artists including Lee Rocker (Bassist and founding member of The Stray Cats), Blues Legend Mason Ruffner...He has shared the stage on Theater Gigs,Festivals, and on Tours with Asia, Loverboy, Edgar Winter, Eddie Money,Tesla, Ratt, Willie Nelson, Arlo Gunthrie, Elvin Bishop, Joe Ely, Delbert McClinton, Vince Neil, Dee Snider, Vanilla Fudge, Savoy Brown, Bret Michaels, Night Ranger, Angel, Pretty Boy Floyd, Bullet Boys, LA Guns.
