Today In Music: A look back at pop music

Chris Lowe (born Christopher Sean Lowe on 4 October 1959) is a British musician, who, with colleague Neil Tennant, makes up the successful pop duo the Pet Shop Boys.

Lowe attended the Arnold School (then named Arnold House School), an independent school in his home town of Blackpool in North West England. While there, Lowe played trombone in a seven-piece dance band called One Under the Eight, that played old-time favourites like "Hello Dolly", "La Bamba" and "Moon River". Lowe's grandfather had been a trombonist and was a member of comedy jazz troupe The Nitwits. Lowe also became a skilled pianist.

Lowe studied architecture at the University of Liverpool from 1978. During a work placement in 1981 at a London architectural practice, he designed a staircase for an industrial estate in Milton Keynes. It was at this time that he met Neil Tennant in a hi-fi shop on the Kings Road in London.
