A World In London 237 - Pete Lockett Fri, 2017-10-20 12:28

Award-winning rhythm master Pete Lockett on this A World in London! 

Pete Lockett’s contribution to our soundscape is colossal, kick-started by an initial encounter with a rock kit in his home town of Portsmouth, before being smitten by the tabla grooves of Zakir Hussain at London’s Alexandra Palace. It wasn’t long before Pete began to perform on vast stages across the world himself, and with a global collection of drums! You’ll hear his beats in five James Bond films, numerous other Hollywood blockbusters, plus the works of Dido, Bjork, Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant, and The Verve. Like many of the very best musicians, Pete is a modest man that plays down his achievements but has so much to be proud of. Open and sharing, he gifts his skills through a tuition series on YouTubeand his brilliant best selling percussion app for iDevices – DrumJam.
