Prior to launching the iconic hard rock band Survivor back in 1978, Jim Peterik was the front man for another hugely successful group - The Ides of March. I recently spoke with Peterik about the Ides of March 50th Anniversary box set, his new project with vocalist Marc Scherer called “Risk Everything” and more.
Most rock biographies tend to follow a similar pattern. The artist’s road to redemption is paved with tales of debauchery, drug abuse, marital infidelity and a trashing hotel room or two. Although Jim Peterik’s story doesn’t really follow that path, it's even more special.
Guitarist Jim Peterik still has the "Eye of The Tiger." Whether it’s performing, songwriting, mentoring and developing new talent or hosting his annual World Stage events, the man who penned the No. 1 anthem from Rocky III continues to deliver the goods.
