Dan Peters, born today August 18th, 1967, happy birthday, music pal: better known as Mudhoney's great drummer, and no less, as the original drummer for Nirvana's Sliver - notwithstanding the video released to promote Incestice in 1993 features Dave Ghrol: Dan tells the backstory in this short clip. Pretty interesting: briefly, Kurt Cobain did not exactly excel fairplay here. And later so did Screaming Tree too, which he joined in 1991, on tour. Funny-not-so-funny story.

Lucky for him, and for the entire world of people enjoying punk rock, he went on with Mudhoney. I saw them performing live only once, ages ago in Rome, - how great, they were ace. To me, unforgettable. Check here, pix and vids included, 2006, May 20th.

Anyway, how did everything start for Daniel Joe Peters? Answer: drumsticks gifted to him from his mother's drummer when he was a kid, and some Solid Gold, Gang of Four's Solid Gold. The vinyl which, it seems, changed the course of his life. 

Again, happy birthday. Well, one more time (he) is Good enough for me.
