Learning from the Master, Mike Peters

mikep1This past Saturday April 26, Mike Peters of ‘The Alarm’ was kind enough to offer up his expertise and talent to Kids Rock Free® at Fender® Center for the Performing Arts. In the afternoon, he spoke in a special Master Class about his rise to stardom and everything that lead up to his success in the industry.

From a lowly band in the UK, proclaiming themselves ‘The Toilets!’ to shenanigans of hiding their band name in order to get on the radio—Peters was a real treat.

Peters spoke movingly about his real desire with regard to becoming a musician. After John Lennon was killed, he realized that all his music had been created for commercial gain. From that point on, he decided he wanted to create art that was honest and real. He wanted to make music that mattered—a goal that he is still fully dedicated to.

Peters is lucky enough to have played with many amazing bands, including U2. Overall, the audience was treated to a unique live memoir of a fascinating man.
