Musical career

Pike joined the New York-based political hardcore band Reagan Youth in 1981, becoming their second bassist. He remained in the group until 1984, playing on their debut Youth Anthems for the New Order EP (later re-released as the Volume 1 LP.) During this era, Pike was also involved with Straight Edge Magazine.

In 1983, Pike was included in formative lineups of Glenn Danzig's group Samhain, but due to other commitments, did not last long with the band, appearing only on a single track from the Initium album.

Following the death of former lead singer Dave Rubinstein, Pike contributed liner notes to Reagan Youth's 1997 Live & Rare archival release, culled mostly from material from his time in the band. In 2006, Pike reformed Reagan Youth with original guitarist Paul Bakija, but again departed the group in 2011.
