Peter Gabriel really gets the electronic age. I’ve said it before (but not here) and I’m going to say it again. Peter Gabriel is one artist that other artists in the music industry ought to emulate. I’m not saying they should imitate his musical style. However, they should find the courage to experiment like he has experimented throughout his career. I don’t think everything Gabriel has produced has always been particularly successful but I can hear him think when I listen to his stuff. At the end of the day, I’d rather have more of him and his likes (David Byrne, also mentioned in the article, comes to mind) than the insipid crud the music industry normally promotes.
So hurray! Hurray for Peter Gabriel being who he is! We need more like him!
