Peter Gabriel's landmark album 'So' reached its 25 anniversary a couple of years ago, when fans were treated to a deluxe reissue. Among the bonus tracks on that release was a demo of a previously unreleased song called 'Courage.' But Gabriel isn't done with it yet: He recently remixed the song for a brand new single.
On Aug. 15, 1975, it was officially announced that Peter Gabriel had left Genesis. The announcement followed weeks of speculation that a split was about to occur. At the time, a record company spokesman issued a statement that Gabriel was leaving the band to concentrate on "other literary and experimental interests outside of music."
The story of punk's ascendancy in the '70s often frames the music as a raw, working-class reaction to the bloated, overly self-serious rock of the day. But as Peter Gabriel reminded us during a recent interview, the truth wasn't always so cut and dried.
On Sept. 17, Peter Gabriel will release 'Live in Athens 1987,' a film that documents his three-night stand at the open-air theatre atop Mount Lycabettus in the Greek capital. The set will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and digital video formats.
Peter Gabriel's second solo album boasts one of rock's most iconic cover photos: the singer and songwriter, gazing directly into the camera, literally scratching apart his visage. It's an appropriate metaphor for the record itself: For the first time since leaving Genesis, it truly felt like Gabriel was obliterating his old image and reinventing himself as a songwriter and sonic craftsman.
Peter Gabriel is known for being one of the most forward-thinking, imaginative musicians of our time. Both the albums he made with Genesis and as a solo artist reflect a commitment to spiritual lyrics and genre-blending sounds steeped
