Peter Gabriel- So 35th Anniversary

(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 : 35 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)

My exclusive classic rock interview with Peter Gabriel in front of a small intimate audience was his first reveal of those songs plus “Love to Be Loved”, “Steam”, “Kiss That Frog”, and “Secret World”. Part one of two.

Genesis- Abacab 40th Anniversary- Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins

The September 1981 release of Genesis “Abacab”  forty years ago. The veteran English band’s eleventh  studio album, nevertheless it was the first Genesis album to breach the American Top Ten album sales on Billboard , and surprisingly the first Genesis million seller. Yet it is no minor miracle that my guests Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins, and Tony Banks could make it to the Progressive Rock promised land.

Phil Collins- Face Value

Of his cinderella  first solo album “Face Value” forty years ago, Phil Collins recalls the real-life betrayal and heartbreak which inspired “In the Air Tonight”, “I Missed Again”; and why he did not include another original, “How Can You Sit There?”, on Face Value nor it’s follow up, Hello I Must Be Going, but opted instead to give it to the soundtrack of the 1984 movie Against All Odds, going on to become Phil Collins’ first #1 hit.
