A Phil Brodie Band ~Tribute Page

PETE JACKSON
b: February 6th 1944.
Bassist with The Hillbilly Cats

Pete has been Keeping Music Live now for over 40 years. One of his earliest bands was
"The Lizards" with his brother Roger
Jackson, Dickie Elroyd and Barry Marshall [later Bitter Suite]. Dickie left because of girlfriend trouble and was replaced by our Gerry Scanlan [later Bitter Suite]. The Lizards were probably the most popular non commercial band around Sheffield in the early 60s. Peter Stringfellow took the band on and styled them into a "Hollies" type band. In 1965 Pete and brother Roger left to become rockabillies and joined "The Hillbilly Cats" with Dave Graham and Brian Terry. Later John Riley[ex-Cruiser], even later Johnny Pearson. The Hillbilly Cats are part of the Sheffield music culture, a household name, still playing very regular venues in the area with Pete the ever-cool bass man, and brother Roger keeping them in order on drums.
