Who is Red Peters and what does he do?
Red Peters is back. Many musicologists believe that if Red Peters had stuck with just one musical style, he'd have been a power player years ago. Instead, he jumped from art-rock/new-wave ("Give Youself A Handy, You've Earned It") to a brief Punk stint with the Swollen Members. He also sang on a record for a capella group, singing "You Promised the Moon (But I Preferred Uranus)", and recorded the tear jerking true "Ballad of a Dog Named Stains" for country / folksters Smelly Water during his Nashville period. Check out this video clip of Red's TV Commercial for "Ol' Blue Balls Is Back!" Why is he not as famous as George Carlin?
