After playing professionally for 15 years in the late seventies, the eighties and the early nineties, Stuart stopped performing in favor of managing artistes and staging events.
"We're not going to half-ass anything," Rice said after a fan yelled out that request. "If we can't play it perfectly, we're not going to play it. And that's one we need to work on."
After almost two decades building a business, he decided it was time to start performing again and contacted his old mates from so many years earlier and asked if they want to have some fun. The result is No Quarter…and the rest is going to be history….
In the Eighties “we all played in different bands together”. Well, thats where (and when) we met Pete and he gained his experience, like the rest of us, playing the gruelling club circuit in eighties South Africa. Three sets a night, six nights a week month after month…and we all loved it!! Pete took time out to build a business but never really stopped performing. A tasty, stylish guitarist with almost four decades of experience, he now lends his talents to being one of the bunch of mates we call No Quarter
