Name: Pete Loran

Favorite album of all time? This is really an impossible question to answer, even for somebody that grew up buying entire records ( unlike today's consumers )... I'll give you a couple.... Fair Warning -Van Halen, Dream Police - Cheap Trick, Captain Fantastic - Elton John.
What is the first CD or LP you ever bought? I remember it clearly, Judas Priest Unleashed in the East!
Favorite musician: Again impossible.... Prince, Stevie Ray Vaughan, These are true musicians...effortless
As you describe yourself ?A work in progress...
Pete, what are your most recently completed projects and what are you currently working on?
Finished a Trixter record a couple of years ago called New Audio Machine. Currently working on the next one. Always writing and recording however. I have a Country/Rock band that is getting busy as well.. called Georgia Chrome.
Has the dynamic of Trixter changed over the years?
Not at all, I know exactly what to expect when I get together with these guys on and off the stage. Happily predictable.
Almost everyone has a song that is special, you would like to reveal what is your song special and why?
I think for me career wise it would be Give It To Me Good..that was the first single released of the first Trixter record, The video blew up and the record went gold immediately.
Who were the bands or musicians who had the greatest influence on you? And who has been your vocal influences throughout your career?
Van Halen, Boston, Cheap Trick, Judas Priest, The Eagles, Billy Joel, in the early years, vocalists... Dave Roth, Eric Martin, Steve Perry, Phil Collins, Bonnie Raitt, Prince, Doug Pinick, Sly Stone, and on and on and on.....I'm constantly being influenced thankfully...
Up to this point in your career, what has been your most memorable moment?
I would say, playing the hometown arena in Jersey and having our Gold record ceremony after the gig.....
Who is in the current lineup of Trixter now?
All original members!
To end the interview, a phrase you want to leave ....
Look for the new Trixter record coming in spring of 2015!
