Artist Biography by

Drummer/vocalist Peter Dunton appeared on the crest of stardom when he was tapped to replace original drummer Louis Farrell in Gun, a late-'60s British psychedelic/progressive band featuring brothers Adrian and Paul Gurvitz. Although he arrived too late to play on the band's most successful recording, "Race With the Devil," his hard-hitting syncopation helped to transform the band's 1969 album, Gunsight, into one of the unsung classics of late-'60s British psychedelia.

Forming a similar band, T2, with bassist Mike Foster and guitarist Ray Lee a few months after Gun's demise, Dunton released an album, It'll All Work Out in Boomland, in 1970. Although he recorded several subsequent tunes with the group, including a single produced by Dave Edmunds, and a solo single, "Taking Time" b/w "Still Confused," Dunton failed to meet his early potential and faded into obscurity.
