Peter Gabriel of Genesis – Coolest Costumes in Rock

Although he keeps his wardrobe pretty simple nowadays, when Peter Gabriel was in Genesis he was known for sporting a series of ever-more outlandish costumes, including perhaps most famously, one that turned him into an oversized flower.

He also appeared as a fox, a bat, and whatever the heck the “Slipperman” is. These outfits brought a high level of theatricality to the band’s concerts, but they also elevated Gabriel above his bandmates in the eyes of the public, and pushed the actual music to the background. This reportedly upset the communal balance of the group and lead to the singer’s departure in favor of a solo career in 1975.
