Peter Wilkinson is most famous as the drummer of the rock band The Saints.
Wilkinson joined the group in 1999 and appeared first on the 2001 album Spit the Blues Out and, later, on Nothing is Straight in My House (2005) and Imperious Delirium (2006).
Wilkinson then joined Bailey on a detour with French band H-Burns, to form Bailey Burns. They recorded the album Stranger, released 2011, and proceeded to tour in France. The Saints album "King of the Sun", released in 2013, was recorded in Trackdown studios, Sydney, again with Wilkinson behind the drums.
Before joining The Saints, Wilkinson was the drummer with a few London-based bands such as Desperation Angels, (1994) with Richard England and Michael Bayliss. Desperation Angels evolved into Mox Mox and Alcohol, and Kosa with Andy Faulkner and Stella Ferguson.
