                    FACTS AND INFO
 ON THE MAN OF THE RAPID FIRE RIFFS
Information on Pete Post Leppard is very scarce, and this is just the beginning of what i hope to be an extensive bio, for now this is what we got............

Born: 16 February 1960  in Sheffield, UK
Started the band Atomic Mass with bassist Rick Savage back in 1977, which inturn became Def Leppard. 2 ripp ass albums were recorded , On through the Night and High 'n' Dry w/ Pete writing/ co writing much of the material.
1982 was unceremoniously ousted from the band. An era ends.....
 
 
 PETE WILLIS POST DEF LEPPARD BANDS

GOGMAGOG
Organized by Jonathan King, Russ Ballard and John Entwhistle as a heavy rock opera based on the legend of Gog and Magog (?)
GOGMAGOG was comprised of Pete, Paul Di' Anno (ex- Iron Maiden), Janick Gers (ex-Gillan, Iron Maiden), Neil Murray (ex-Gary Moore), and Clive Burr (ex- Iron Maiden)

Roadhouse
In 1987, Pete formed "Roadhouse" together with Trevor Brewis (drums), Wayne Grant (bass), Richard Day (guitar) and Paul Jackson (vocals) to make one self-titled album with them. It seems Roadhouse doesn't exist anymore.
(PITY THAT)

 PETE ON THE VH1 DEF LEPPARD BIO SPECIAL

In the last year or so, VH1 took it upon themselves to document the rise
( and what ever you call it today) of Def Leppard.
It starts right at day one, from their scruffy beginnings in Sheffield, to lots of naked women under their stage. Surprisingly they actually looked up Pete to interview for this bit of tv journalism. He seemed subdued and if not a bit sad, he acknowledged his problems with drink leading to his exit from the band and said very little in ways of negative comments towards the band. On the other hand Joe Elliot was less than gracious with his comments. When addressing Pete's dismissal, he just made a big joke out of it, " We gave him the Spanish archer, El bow" ( quite kind of you Joe...)
Nothing else was mentioned of Pete after his departure from Leppard, and there you go.
In light of this and Joe's comment, I decided that someone should give Pete his due; hence this site. More will be forth coming as information is gathered, as I plan on not letting people forget what is was like when Def Leppard were a force to be recond with...
 
 
 
The veiws expressed here are wholey Riff Bludgeon-Ola's ( well actually quite a few Def Leppard fans, but i digress..) Pete and Def Leppard mark 1 were neat, so there........and good day to you.
