Hard to believe but I've been playing drums for 54 years. Originally inspired by my Dad's records, my first drum heroes were Joe Morello and Buddy Rich. I'm lucky to have lived through a time when such giants were still among us and I preserve those traditions of playing but with a modern twist. Self taught, I continue to break new ground constantly. My 2018 DVD, 'Pete Cater: On Drums' has enabled me to spread the word internationally. I lead a big band as well as smaller band. I'm a regular on UK drum shows, clinics, and teach privately.
