There are multiple artists called Player: (1) A 70s soft Pop/Rock band from L.A (2) A Techno collective from U.K. (3) An alias of Amon Tobin. (4) A Slayer tribute band from the Netherlands.
(1) Player began as a chance meeting between Peter Beckett and J.C. Crowley, in 1977. They met by coincidence, both being the only two dressed in jeans and t-shirts, attending an all-white garb party in Hollywood. J.C. came from Galveston Bay, Texas. Oddly enough, they both turned out to be singer/songwriters, and made plans to get together later and jam.
