Peter Hayes (born February 11, 1976) is an American musician and singer, best known as a member of the rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
Hayes grew up in Minnesota, and when 14 or 15 years old got into trouble and was grounded for over a year. During that time he began figuring out how to play his mother's guitar out of boredom. She taught him some flamenco and finger picking songs, which was influential for Hayes, as was the music of Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd. While in high school, Hayes met future band mate Robert Levon Been, and later "out of the blue" had a tryout with The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
Hayes played guitar and bass for the neo-psychedelic rock band The Brian Jonestown Massacre circa 1997/1998.Examples of his playing can be heard on the group's Give It Back! album.
Hayes appears as a highly visible, yet quiet musician in the 2004 movie documentary DiG! as an active touring member of The Brian Jonestown Massacre. The film also documents the befriended band The Dandy Warhols.
Peter Hayes is a founding and current member of the alternative rock trio Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
