Peter Gabriel- So

(cont)…It was not until stumbling into the broadcast media/entertainment business that I got to witness,up close and personally,individual musicians who have been given enormous powers of influence ,through the modern phenomenon of celebrity,by the very people who they entertain. Case in point is this week’s classic rock interview : 25 years ago,ex-Genesis lead singer Peter Gabriel had a cult following after four studio solo albums, with his most significant creation being the ground-breaking “Shock the Monkey” video. But with the May 1986 release of So (#1 UK,#2 U.S.,over 5 million sold;4 Grammy nominations including Album and Record of the Year for the #1 hit “Sledgehammer”), Peter Gabriel was vaulted into international pop stardom with all of its attendant door-opening , barrier-eliminating amenities…(more)

Yes-Close to the Edge 45th anniversary- Jon Anderson, Steve Howe ,Rick Wakeman, Bill Bruford

Many of the post-British Invasion bands were approaching the rock idiom seriously  by 1972, the peak year for this “progressive “ rock movement which had matured  with spectacular results, both artistically and commercially.

Jeffrey Gaines- In Your Eyes- Dallas 1992

With Peter Gabriel‘s superb So album marking an anniversary, it brings to mind this bold cover version of one of Gabriel’s most-loved songs. Clearly, young Jeffrey Gaines was already reinterpreting  “In Your Eyes” and mesmerizing audiences with it as early as Fall 1992, which this live acoustic performance on my Dallas/ Ft.Worth radio show reveals, but […]

Phil Collins- Face Value 35th Anniversary

The club of rock singing drummers is particularly exclusive, no doubt because it is reportedly one of the the hardest things to do musically.

Progressive Rock’s 1972 Peak

For Christmas 1971, my 11 year old brother received a present from me of a record album. While on the surface this would appear not the least remarkable … except that it was Meddle by Pink Floyd, containing the 18 minute long opus  “Echoes”. Not your standard fare for fifth grade “show and tell “. […]
