It was Pete Holmes, I believe, who is thanked on Blizzard as Pete "Pedalboard" Holmes. Not sure how they wrote pedalboard.
You right, on the Blizzard cover it says: "Special thanks to: - blah, blah etc, Pete (Pedalboard) Holmes".
Since I rarely listen to those studio records I never noticed it.
And I think Kevin confused the backname then.
Did some searching for Pete Holmes:

I'd really like to know more about the pedal system you use on stage. Who built it and what personal input did you have into its design?
"I've used many, many pedal systems which might be featured in yet another forthcoming publication of mine about effects, pedal boards, amps, and all that sort of stuff, and I'm in the very initial stages of working on. If you're referring to, say, KEYS TO ASCENSION, it was a put together system with two volume pedals, wah-wahs, fuzz-box and a selector switch which meant I could go round different ways from a stereo lead, or a mono lead, and go to three different setups, two amps and an effects rack. I had one built ten years ago by Pete Holmes, the company was called Quark, and he now works in Marion Heights Studio, in Montreal, Canada. But he made a brilliant pedal board and if I need one I've got one."
Would be nice if someone could track him done for an interview about the 'chippan' he build for Randy.
