Pistol Pete began his musical career after an old friend convinced him he could sing as well as anyone on the radio. He learned to play the bass in a heavy-duty power trio because his old friend and band member (Andy Cummings) played a mean guitar and the thunderous Steve "the Styx" Matson was an excellent drummer. They had two successful albums: "Reaching Out" and "To The Other Side" which can still be found in the local record store bins. They shared many great shows and very fond memories of their tenure in the Twin Cities and Minnesota. The next stop on his musical odyssey was with some great musicians (Andrew and Jay) forming a hard rock cover band called the Low Road. Pistol would start the shows with an acapella Irish diddy (You Take the High Road) then slam into Jailbreak followed by more rawkus high-energy songs (footage of the Low Road can be seen on YouTube by searching haazy1234). After several personnel changes, the band changed its musical focus and Pete knew he had to get back to the original hard rock music he loves to write and perform. After searching briefly and dodging a few bullets, he found some great guys and musicians called Fatal Kaliber who were looking for a new front man. He could see himself singing for this guitar-riff-oriented band that had the same passion for rock n' roll that he did. But shortly after Pistol joined the band, two original members quit. Seeing an opportunity to revamp the band, co-founding guitarist Slinger, drummer Jay, and Pistol decided to forge on. Pistol Pete is excited and honored to play with musicians of this 'Kaliber'.
