Dan Peters has been playing in Mudhoney since they started in January 1988. He also plays in The New Original Sonic Sound.
Dan Peters temporarily filled in as a drummer for Nirvana in 1990. Nirvana's original drummer was Chad Channing. He left the group following a European tour and as a likely replacement proved hard to find, Dan Peters from labelmates Mudhoney stepped in on a temporary basis.
Peters was featured on the single 'Sliver', Nirvana's sole 1990 release. Soon after the release Peters was replaced by new drummer David Grohl, who reaffirmed a sense of stability.
