Born in Port of Spain, the capital of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Pete de Freitas joined Liverpool post-punkers Echo & the Bunnymen in 1979, right before they recorded their seminal 1980 debut album, ‘Crocodiles.’ He stayed on for four additional Bunnymen studio albums and played on the hit singles ‘The Cutter,’ ‘The Killing Moon’ and ‘Lips Like Sugar.’ De Freitas died in a motorcycle accident in 1989, roughly a year after Bunnymen singer Ian McCulloch had quit the group.
