Drummer Lori Peters leaves Skillet, replaced by Jen Ledger

THE DRUMMER with popular American rock band Skillet, Lori Peters, has left the group. Said Skillet's frontman John Cooper, "Lori told us about two months ago that she felt that it was time for her to come off the road and start a new chapter in her life. We are of course going to miss her! Lori's last show with us was New Year's Eve." The new drummer is 18 year old Jen Ledger. CR

That's right. Lori was awesome and Jen will be too. I personally got to meet the band. I think it was in 2000. I met Lori. She was nice. I really liked her. I gave her a hug.

They are both blessed with different styles. Uplifting is better then downgrading.
