Feeling a bit camera shy


There are some things in life that change the course of history: rock and roll history that is. One of these occasions happened the day Jimmy Peat picked up a guitar. Like the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs, he hammered down on a chord creating a wall of raw electric sound, and set out on a mission to put back the Rock in Roll. Gradually climbing the ranks of guitarists named Jimmy, he puts on a show that’s like sex for your ears!
Jimmy was born in Toronto in the mid-eighties, but moved to rural Muskoka at the age of nine; it is there where he was bitten by a mosquito carrying the rock and roll virus. He began acquiring and listening to rock albums including ‘Chuck Berry‘, ‘Led Zeppelin II and IV‘, and ‘KISS Alive!’. In his first year of high school, anxious to learn how to play the music that consumed his soul, he took up the drums. That wasn’t enough though and he soon picked up a guitar and started learning to play. With his cheap-ass Radio Shack keyboard, he’d play leads with his beat up acoustic for hours while the keyboard kept the rhythm.
Now a rock and roll guru, he formed a band in his home town. They became infamous with sex, drugs, and rock and roll for those who watched them. Screaming out “I’m quite the handy man, but what I really like to do… I LIKE TO SCREW!” and running through the crowd, ripping out notes from his guitar, he left audiences jaw dropped and in awe. The best description comes from a review of a battle of the bands he competed in: “…The big surprise however was from a local band featuring Jim Peat and Don (Burgin that is). Through a calming rock ballad, and multiple wailing guitar solos they wowed and astonished both crowd and judges.”
Now moving on from his rural rocking Jimmy Peat is attending Indie Music Production at Seneca college, so he can continue rocking and rolling until the day he dies (or becomes a vegetable… which ever one comes first).
