It was to be a fateful day for Pete Macleod when he bumped into fellow Glaswegian Alan McGee back in ’06. The setting was California where he had just moved to further his career, Alan offered Pete some well educated advice and lent his support. Taking stock of this Pete went on to structure his career, surrounding himself with like minded musicians who all learnt from each other which in turn benefited his Music. He then served his time on the gigging circuit, this hard graft created a buzz and his name was held in high regard – which led to him supporting Ocean Colour Scene in ’07, along with seasoned muso Bonehead joining him as an acoustic session guitarist for the recording of his EP “Lost and Found” and on Pete’s solo tour in ’08.
