Guest, Peter Beckett

Peter Beckett is from Liverpool England. “Being from Liverpool it would be hard not to have been influenced by the Beatles, whom I saw play at the Cavern a couple of times when I was very young."
Peter was obviously under age at the time the Beatles were playing at the Cavern, but his older brother managed to smuggle him into the club a few times to see the Beatles and other bands. Listening to the Beatles is why he decided he wanted to spend his life making music.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

 

Peter Beckett was in Liverpool England. “Being from Liverpool it would be hard not to have been influenced by the Beatles, whom I saw play at the Cavern a couple of times when I was very young."
Peter was obviously under age at the time the Beatles were playing at the Cavern, but his older brother managed to smuggle him into the club a few times to see the Beatles and other bands. Listening to the Beatles is why he decided he wanted to spend his life making music.
Peter’s group called Skyband re-located to Los Angeles and became a founder member of a group called Player who had a No. 1 hit with ‘Baby Come Back’ in 1977, which Peter co-wrote and sang lead on (the number has been in over 40 movies and TV commercials, the most recent being ‘Transformers’). After recording four successful albums, the band split up and Peter’s success as a songwriter began to bear fruit as his songs were recorded by a variety of artists including Olivia Newton John, Kenny Rogers, the Temptations, Heart, Sergio Mendez, Vanessa Hudgens and Grace Slick, to name a few.
Peter also recorded his solo album ‘Beckett’, joined the Little River Band for eight years and wrote several singles for them and also began composing for film and television in addition to continuing touring, both as a solo artist and with band.
Among his song writing credits in major movie soundtracks are ‘The Karate Kid’, ‘Cocktail’, ‘Two Of A Kind’, ‘Major League’, ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, ‘Frankie & Johnny (the Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer film), ‘Basic’ and ‘Terminator 3’ – and he received a Grammy nomination for ‘St Elmo’s Fire.’
