Hi Pete Was at the Llanelli Parc Y Scarlets UB 40 gig last night as a treat for my 24th wedding anniversary. Level 42 absolutely nailed it for me and your drumming made Animal look like a muppet (oh he is isn't he...!) Great pale blue Tama kit. I'm good mates with Aled Richards (ex Catatonia drummer) Can't wait to show him the pics and vids of you guys. Best wishes to Mark, Mike and the guys. Must get to see you all again sometime. Enjoy the rest of the tour. Cheers Antony

Hi Pete, I saw you play several times in the Netherlands. 3 times in Groningen and the last time (8-11-2016) in Tilburg (013). Great performance and a inspiring drumstyle. I have been a Level 42 fan from the very beginning of the band. The band inspired me as a bass player and as a drums player! Thank you very much on keeping Level 42 alive and kicking. Keep inspiring people all over the world!! Yours sincerely, Glenn Dost

Paul BarrettPaul Barrett from Tewkesbury wrote on 16 August, 2015 on 16:45:
Pete. Saw you at the Level 42 gig at Cropredy on Friday night and as a drummer myself can I say that you were totally mindblowing. I think you are the grooviest and most on it drummer I have ever seen. It was an absolute pleasure to see you play and what you did will stay with me for ever (it will probably take me that long to work even 1% of what you did!!) In fact the whole band were fantastic ( and I wouldn't call myself a Level 42 fan). Thank you very much. Paul
Richard HodgesRichard Hodges from Heswall wrote on 15 August, 2015 on 01:34:
Thanks Pete for an inspired performance at carfest north 2 weeks ago. Your band in particular managed to elevate the mood after what was a very sad day after the tragic death of pilot Kevin Whyman. Not having paid much attention to the band over recent years I didn't know what to expect after the legacy of PG & GH. All I can say is I didn't know they made drummers like that anymore!! Thanks.

Just to say I have been watching Level 42 on you tube at Lugano 2010 for several weeks now and I am just amazed at Petes drumming skills.It is the first thing I look for when watching live music you are exceptional thank you.

Damn!!!!! What an inspiring performance yesterday at the Drakenboot Festival in Apeldoorn with Level 42. Really loved you're technical skills and the pleasure and energy of your drumming! Even forgot that Level 42 was playing .......... (sorry ;-) ) Still impressed and due to your way of drumming highly motivated to practice & enjoy my own drumming even more. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pete - great playing (currently listening to you w/ Level 42 at Estival Jazz Lugano 2010). Very energetic playing from you. As a fan of Level 42 since "The Pursuit of Accidents", I wondered if an energetic player such as yourself could co-exist with Mark King. You have erased my doubts! Keep up the great work. Now I have to find your playing with another of my favorites, Incognito.

Hey Pete, I took my 12 year old girl to see L-42 at Royal Albert Hall (Oct 2014). Seen them many times over the years but first time Ive seen you live. You made the night for us! (we are both 'TAMA' drummers), she was inspired (as was I!) especially when we found your 11year old plays (Garys) Level 42 drums video :) ... Just what she needed to keep the 'drive' going! Thanks Pete you 'Rock' we loved it... More YouTube videos please :)

Hey Pete, I love your playing, it's unfortunate that we don't get to see you in America.What will it take to get you to Los Angeles? Also, getting access to your CD's is little difficult on this side of the globe. Please give me some feedback. Take care.
RobertoRoberto from Vargas wrote on 16 January, 2014 on 04:51:
Holy grail. Holy cow. Level 42 grooves much harder now. Thank you for making my fav band that much greater. Took me a while to get around to dropping u a msg, but as a hardcore fan needed years for it to fully sink in. As others have posted the synergy between you and Mark elevates the music to higher grounds and puts a wicked grin on my face.
George MitchellGeorge Mitchell from Little Rock, Arkansas wrote on 24 November, 2013 on 10:02:
Was a fan of Level 42. But after stumbling upon the Lugano Estival show, I was tripping. Then is all came back to me where I had seen you, Incognito. You definitely are doing the right thing. I met Bluey in London and knew what he demanded from his drummer, focus, groove and jet fuel when needed, just from talking to him. Your future is very bright. You've got a fan here and the newest drummer to my personal Hall of Funk.

Hey Pete, I was also just checking out for some Level42-stuff and I got fascinatet by a youtube-video from Lugano - watching you on drums... As I am a bass-player and Level fan since the 80´s I have to tell you, that the band grooves better than ever and it´s amazing what you and Mark do together - Thanks for that!!! Here´s another new fan... Cheers and keep the funk up Joe

Hi, Pete, I was just checking some Level 42 material on the net, I saw you playing with them. I'm 48 and have a band myself, and have been a fan of Level's all my life. I must admit that your playing is really awsome, and then I checked your bio and you actually play with other huge music monsters, I realized that I had enjoyed your work for a while without even knowing who was playing the drums, man, you're great. All the best for you, I hope one day I might have the chance to see you live.

Lol HigginsLol Higgins from Sheffield wrote on 9 June, 2012 on 20:01:
What a pleasure it was to read the article in drummer magazine. I remember when I started a jam session on Sunday lunchtimes at the Little Mesters in Sheffield. It was there with your parents that you got up to play and what a day that was. I invited a band called Strongheart to guest with the jam sesions and asked Bobby Arechiga if you could jam with tem. I remember Bobby and myself being absolutely blown away. I have just returned to drumming after a lay off and was inspired by your success. Lots of good luck for the future

Hi Pete - I have just returned from the Jobeky custom drum show - and I must say what a pleasure it was to see and hear you play - totally awesome as my mate Bobby would say. You certainly blow a lot of the competition away with your powerful solid playing and driving grooves - the wait and late finish was well worth it - thank you.

Hi Pete Saw you drumming on the Princes Trust on tellyl and thought your style of playing was one of the most refreshing I,ve seen in a long time. Keep rocking bro

Hey Pete! Nice to finally meet you @ D'Angelo gig. Good luck with the big L42 tour. Hope to catch one of the dates. Anyone who can wrestle with Mark King and get away with it must be doing something right! Take it easy!

Hi Pete, awesome drumming, been watching level 42 you tube while training on my bike indoors, soooo much snow rirght now, and hope to come to the uk in october for the gigs, you are everything my drum tutor told me about, bernard purdey, moeller, gadd, you name it, but with your own style of gaps and fills, you excite the drummer and make them very jealous all at the same time, gluck.

Salut Pete, Je t'ai découvert le 27/10/10 à l'AB. Pour être batteur (amateur), tu m'as fait « frissonner » de plaisir du début à la fin du concert. Je n'ai pas hésité une seule seconde pour te revoir quand j'ai appris que tu revenais au « Viage » avec Level 42. Toujours une qualité irréprochable de jeu tout à fait extraordinaire avec un air plutôt « décontracté ». Tellement décontracté que lorsque tu as soif, ce n'est pas seulement à toi que tu donnes à boire, mais aussi à ta batterie ! Tu es vraiment très ROck AnD roLL ! Continue à nous donner ce jeu de monstre des drums ! Tu fais partie de la cour des grands.
