Peter Gabriel performance photoProgressive. Exuberant. Intellectual. Peter Gabriel took us to new heights.

Peter Gabriel has taken on as many different roles post-Genesis as the theatrical roles he assumed as the band's frontman. Whatever Gabriel does-be it writing hit songs or designing avant-garde amusement parks-he does it with style. There have been many Peter Gabriels: the prog-rocker who steered the cosmos-minded genre toward Earth; the semi-new waver more focused on empathic storytelling and musical innovation than fashion or attitude; the Top 40 hitmaker ambivalent about the spotlight; the global activist whose Real World label and collaborations introduced pivotal non-Western acts to new audiences; the elder statesman inspiring a new generation of singer-songwriters. More on
