Peter Collins is a record producer, born January 15, 1951, in London.
In 1976 Collins was signed to Magnet Records and formed a group called Madison to perform his pop song "Let It Ring", which reached 54 in the top 100. The four members of the group were Collins, Ziggy, Peter Spooner & Cherri Gilham
Collins moved to the US in 1985 to produce Rush, first working on Power Windows (1985) and then Hold Your Fire (1987). Known at the time as a pop producer, he brought a more heavily synthesized sound to Rush.
He then produced Queensryche's Rock Opera Concert Album, Operation: Mindcrime (1988). Rush later invited Collins back to produce Counterparts (1993) and Test for Echo (1996), and in both cases he emphasized a return to Rush's heavier rock sound. For a time, Collins was referred to as "Mr Big".
He has also produced records for Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Suicidal Tendencies, Indigo Girls, Jane Wiedlin, October Project, the Cardigans, and Tracey Ullman.
