Peter Beckett was born in the Aigburth section of Liverpool England. In the early sixties, he began taking an interest in music; listening to his older brother's records, and "air" guitaring with a tennis racket to the radio. He was also greatly influenced by listening to Radio London and Radio Luxemburg. Like most teens in the 60's, Peter discovered the music of the Beatles. He would frequent some of their lunch time sets at the famous Cavern Club. He was impressed with what he heard and saw, and decided that this was what he wanted to do with his life.
