JIM PETERIK & WORLD STAGE
I previously referred to Jim Peterik as rock royalty. The man is one of the driving forces behind the American rockers IDES OF MARCH, whom’s “Vehicle” is still one of rock’s finest tracks to date, and Mr. Peterik is the main contributor of some of the most powerful rock anthems of the 80’s with his band SURVIVOR. And song writing has always been the red line through Jim’s life. Not only did he stack successes upon another, he also contributed and co-wrote memorable tracks with a incredibly long list of classic acts such as 38 SPECIAL, VANZANT, BRIAN WILSON, THE BEACH BOYS, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, BLACKHAWK, CHEAP TRICK, SAMMY HAGAR, REO SPEEDWAGON, etc. etc.
Fusing his unstoppable song writing stream, he keeps adding to his catalogue, and most recently he brought together rock alumni’s from his long career to lend their talents for the new WORLD STAGE album `Winds of Change’. A handful of classics in the making, with his musical friends adding their specific vocal sounds to Peterik’s tailor cut hymns. Edwin van Hoof of the HeadBangers LifeStyle team found time to listen to the man in purple.
