Player was formed in 1977 when Englishman Peter Beckett met J.C. Crowley at a Hollywood party. Beckett had come to the United States after the demise of his popular English band Paladin. The band was completed by Ronn and John Friesen
and the four became the founding members. After many rehearsals and
songwriting sessions, Player was born. In 1978, the band had an
international number one hit with first single "Baby Come Back", which
was co-written by Beckett and J.C. Crowley and sung by Beckett. The
first album entitled simply Player went platinum and the band toured
extensively, including support stints with Boz Scaggs, Eric Clapton,
Heart and Kenny Loggins, consistently playing to sold out arena
audiences. Four albums followed spawning four more hit singles,
including "This Time I'm In It For Love", which reached number eleven on
Billboard's chart. Player �redux� consists of founding members Peter Beckett (guitars/lead vocals/keyboards) and Ronn Moss (bass/lead vocals).
Peter Beckett has written hit songs for such artists as Heart,
Olivia Newton-John, Kenny Rogers, The Temptations, Poco, Janet Jackson,
The Commodores, Cliff Richards, Survivor, Grace Slick, and most recently
Vanessa Hudgens. He has numerous movie credits as artist, producer
and/or writer, including �The Karate Kid�, �Two of a Kind�, �Bill &
Ted's Excellent Adventure�, �Major League�, �St Elmo's Fire� (Grammy
nomination), �Frankie and Johnny�, �Rock Star�, �Terminator 3�, �Basic
Instinct�, �Beyond Borders�, �Life or Something Like It�, �Dirty Dancing
2�, and �Transformers�. From 1989-1997, Peter was a featured member of
Little River Band and has written several singles for them.
Since the mid '80s, Ronn Moss has also gained worldwide stardom
with his other career: 25 years as Ridge Forrester, the male lead in the
CBS television series "The Bold And The Beautiful,� a role from which
Moss recently elected to depart to allow him time to devote to Player
and other film and TV roles. �B&B� consistently ranked as the most
watched television series in the world, averaging more than 26 million
viewers per day, and garnered more than 500,000 Twitter followers for
Moss. He has also appeared in numerous feature films and television
commercials, and took second place on the Italian version of �Dancing
With The Stars�.
