Hello Pete! Looking forward to tomorrow night...Ipswich Regent! Your work is fantastic...love the solo on the Sirens track...been a Level 42 fan for 35 years...your style, ability and energy are a perfect fit for my most beloved band!! Luv ya!!!
Smashed it with Level 42 at Liverpool Philharmonic on Monday 10th October 2016. Great playing Pete!
Saw PBUG at Ronnie's for second time - absolutely fantastic. When is the drum book for Drums at the Front being release - can't wait!
Finally found you. So been diggin 2012. With Incognito and Chaka Kahn. I was with her back in the late 70's.
What a beast! A bass players dream. Jamming with you would be a dream come true! Rich
Sat and enjoyed Live from Metropolis Studios this afternoon.Absolutely amazing.Im a longtime fan and I can honestly say for the first time you are the direct replacement for Phil Gould.
Love your playing man, great chops, and great feel!!
Cara sou seu fã,toca muito parabens, vir pro brasil com o Level 42, estamos esperando voçes, Abraço
Pete great fan of your playing ! Amazing precision and tremendous grove. Keep up the good work.
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
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For all the amazing nights out hearing you play.. A huge BIG UP! All the best, Pete.
Hi Pete. A big hug from buenos aires. keep moving forward !!
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.
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.
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.
Pete, you're a killer drummer. One of the absolute best.
Discovered you through Level 42 and Incognito. Loving PB underground stuff. Hopefully see you live someday soon!
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.
hey pete.r that was amazing in luxorlive in arnhem and i have a pic with you. you have a new fan grz xxx
Hello Pete, We where @ Paradiso yesterday to watch Level 42.. And then I heard you play. I'm deeply impressed about your performance . And the combination with Mark King .. crazy You have a new fan.. Keep on rocking ....
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, Just bought tickets for L42, Portsmouth. Can't wait! Do you have any plans for playing "down south" with PB Underground? Cheers JP
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, i'm a big fan of your drumming. i like to see/hear you with my favorit band incognito. no incognito gigs are listet on your page. are you still a member of the band? i hope i can see you play again with the cogs. all the best from germany!
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.
dude watched you on the gogglebox playing at the princes trust,sorry but i,m an old fartt drummer and had never heard of you,but wow you are class dude. loved your playing with boy george in particular.i will keep an eye for if you come to brum. keep it live.
Ciao Pete, next saturday I am coming to Metropolis Studio in Chiswich High Road - London, for the Level 42 live recording dvd; look forward to see you play again !
Hi Pete, congratulation for your success. I Hope you will Star for a Long Time with Level. You are a Great Drummer. Greetings from Germany from your colleque from Hotlevel.
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.
The drummer of my 2 favorite band indeed! Thank you for coming to Indonesia, looking forward to see you again with Level 42 or Incognito. You rock!!
Hi Pete, In fact the're two bands i'm a huge fan of....Yes indeed: Level 42 and Incognito. It must be great to play with guys as Mark King and Bluey.....You're a lucky guy, but you deserve it! You're a great drummer!!! All the best from the Netherlands Renko
Hi, Pete (Pierre) I'm writing to apologize, for the drink we have not taken, after the private concert you have done with your band (incognito) at Festival of Jazz à l'hospitalet. Thank you for this magic moment.
Welcome back to Tokyo! Fantastic evening Absolutely amazing! Level 42 is the best!, indeed, in the world.
Dear Pete, I saw You playing here in Italy 3 years ago with Incognito, at Pescara, last year at Perugia (Incognito & Mario Biondi) and last april with Level 42 at Bologna and Roma. You are a fantastic drummer, really gifted, and that is very special to me, being Level 42 and Incognito my absolutely favourite bands of ever ! Really hope to see You soon. Your nice thought to AMY shows what a good boy you are as well. Take care and Keep on rocking !! Andrea Celi
Hey Pete, hope, you enjoyed the gig in Düren like I do. Fantastic show and perfect weather. I think, there are great songs on Flyaway, so I ordered it today. < Thomas
