I was fortunatel enough to meet him and talk to him a few times. As someone else said here, he is a very graceous person, and really easy to talk to.
The second time I saw him, I was having a smoke behind the venue where his band was to be playing, he happend to pull up in a mini van got out and I said Hello Pete, thanks for coming here to play! Instead of walking into the club, he turned and walked over to me, we chatted for about 2 or 3 minutes, until he was spotted........ He kind of started chuckling and said I better be getting on inside now mate!
Nice guy......... smokin ass drummer!
If you ever get a chance to see him and his band, DO IT!! They will rock you silly!
