Pete the Pirate

Biography

Pirate Pete was born “non-pirate” in the swinging 60’s, but the only swinging he did was in the local park ( still true to this day!).

Music was always a massive influence from the strange metamorphosis of the Beatles, through the sheer excitement of glam and punk, to the jaw dropping discovery you could get whole albums of guitar led rock music not just what appeared in the charts (someone lent him “Physical Graffiti”…what a baptism of fire!).

Rock music became Pete’s first true love as well as mainstream chart stuff, a Saturday job in the local library helped with access to free music on cassette ( a perk of the job ) ….oh joy. Pete began to dabble with the guitar and found AC/DC songs fairly accessible to play along with.

Pete continued recording his fave tracks from the Top 40 every week, and still has a collection of some 30 C90’s of chart hits which still play well.

The fire still blazes bright with Pete’s 2 hour show on Source FM and a his regular gigs with 2Beats which he loves….Power to the Pirate !!
