"gabriel genesis" Discussed on EAST TO WEST WITH NICK AND ROB
"There are a lot of individual ones about specific bands. I already mentioned the Eagles. I love this one because I love this band and there was so much I didn't know there's such a difference between Peter Gabriel Genesis and Phil Collins Genesis, and I'm not here to start a war. Okay, cuz that's not what I want on east or west take it off but this documentary it debuted on Showtime in 2015. You can still see it on Showtime and you can also find it at Netflix if you search YouTube you can catch it there. I think it's four pay it's called the sum of birth. Parts Genesis, you know, these guys are just incredible musicians. They all had careers in their own right Mike and the mechanics Peter Gabriel solo Phil Collins solo. Everybody thought Phil Collins hated Peter Gabriel. He's the drummer on Peter Gabriel's big album. So it's just a fascinating watch and the music is incredible and it actually made me appreciate Peter Gabriel Genesis a little bit more. I think as get older, I'm sort of growing to that sound not just sort of the Brokenhearted Phil Collins stuff. I've won. I love Peter Gabriel gave his cover always strong Heroes. What are my favorite versions of that song? And when he was with Genesis Genesis was a totally different band. They definitely work it early as I understand it will progressive rock. Yeah, I don't even yeah, I guess that's what you would call it. The long legs. Zeppelin songs just weird shit. You know, when I first saw Genesis with Peter Gabriel, he came out on the stage and he was wearing a flower costume. He got more and more theatrical which is weird because when he finally gets the solo stuff he goes back to park. Which is just an odd sort of evolution and I've always wanted to know what happened to his hair because I see him in all the videos and the sledgehammer and he has this full head of hair then all of a sudden I see him and he's completely life you ball. I like the job all look. Now. It kind of Suits him. He's another guy that got a lot of the musicians Out of Africa first. Of albums, you know, like, know Paul Simon did you say to Paul Simon is a great example, right? These are guys that like experiment with sound and get a lot of people that play weird instruments a lot of work and it works because a lot of other bands take that sound and then these guys have whole careers on it. So shouts to both of those guys incredible stuff. Yeah, Peter gave a lot of South Africa and African stuff all works a lot of his stuff. He did the shall we dance song The Book of Love when he's done a lot of amazing covers and I still root and I saw Phil Collins last year in 2019 before covid-19 gets back to the other one more time because I just want to see them I don't care. How old they are Phil Collins play the drums anymore. I just want to see him one more time. Phil Collins is a rocks rocks when he played Live Aid. Yep. Three different cities on a second day by the way shouts to another podcast NPR This American Life the Phil Collins breakup episode. It's a couple of years old. Now one of the best podcasts I've ever listened to my whole life..

"Have you seen the film because I had? Oh yes. I've I've seen the film many times route. So just let's digress. Just a little bit and talk about your love of Yes. Oh yes songs your introduction to them as a band. Was it like a nice something up. Read a lot about this. Bain alive is a good introduction. If it's not a best off reject your entry point into yes. No no actually. I have a very interesting entry into. Yes and I'll tell you about that in a second but I do want to preface it by saying that as you know I love all kinds of music and literally I can go to a Yes. Show one night and going see fear or black flag the next night. And then Metallica the native after that or jazz rock. I just love it all but I gotta say that. Yes probably is the music that I would call my own I. I had an older brother. I had an aunt that had given me music. Prior LOT OF FORTY FIVES LOT BEATLES. Type of stuff sixty stuff. Early seventy stuff mostly pop. I moved around a lot of parents moved durant. Lots and we'd moved to a new town. I met a kid at school. He said come over to the house and we're going through records and he says yeah. I don't like this one. Do you want it? It was this green album. That just immediately spoke to me. I was like sure. Yeah I'll I'll take it. I have no idea what it is. I go home and you gotta understand. I'm like a Lord of the Rings. Not that's my Geek. Dumb if you will that whole Tolkien esque sort of thing and so I take it home. I have this new album I put on and from the moment the bird start chirping. I've realized I'm in another world. Gob Ainsley that album is close to the edge in. So that was my actual introduction. Yes not long. After that I did work out the money for the three record. Yes songs y you said that you wouldn't developed into this world of yes and let me ask you did you. Sort of go and follow up. We in a year So Rick Wakeman's solar material about the same time. Let me think. Wow that's a great question. I have to say that my favorite Progressive Rock outfit is not. Yes it's actually genesis. Park a very specific Peter Gabriel Genesis. So and to me. The greatest album ever made is lamb lies down. I think the easy thing to answer. This question is that like a fragile. Which was the obvious choice. I don't think I got some of the earlier albums until eight track and that would have been meant that I was driving which meant I was sixteen. That was a few years later. You know seconds out was a big one. But I think that didn't come out to seventy five five remember and again. I am very collective taste so know. I wasn't totally just listening to you. Ask Twenty four seven. I was listening to a lot of the things as well. I'm sure funny. I think when I was maybe about ten or eleven and Rick. Wakeman was touring presumably around the world with his journey to the center of the Earth. And it was I think. The Australian tour culminated with a live simulcast from Melbourne's my music and I'm pretty sure that that's available like as a David Day now but I remember watching that and was transfixed and my sister who is not a rock person but she watched that with me and then. When I wasn't buying Beatles records was buying records and this is all before I even realized that yes existed then coming back to yes songs. There's a whole section of devoted to just solar wants.

"Those. Sure. Down inside trying film Noah. Jews. Not. Not. This. Genesis on the coral closed radio. Our certainly one of the populist songs we've ever we've ever played. But as we were playing it Mike Rutherford bass playing is absolutely blistering, and it gets lost under fills drums, which arguably is a standout in in most. Post. Peter Gabriel Genesis records. But man, if that was just drums and bass, it would be an awesome song. And then it sounds like the stacks horns, you know. What I mean share just just tearing it up. Yeah. The first time my earliest memory of hearing that record. I said I'd become musically aware about the time that this was was on the chart, and it was during the transition from popular music from from AM to FM radio. So I remember hearing that record on a little tinny AM super compressed audio. It it doesn't sound the same as it does. Just blair. Speakers or just, you know as big as that sound is to hear it like through telephone which you know, what it's going to sound a little like this. Completely different so different. Oh my God. That was shitty. So you know, I did not appreciate kind of. I wrote Genesis off, you know, at that time. Just just a pop man, you know, nother MTV band. And you know, I felt like at the time I felt like it'd be a purist. If I was like sucked which KP back in the family down Broadway and not doing it anymore. And now, they're on MTV and everything sucks share. But I was thirteen dick. So yeah, I think I think a lot of people felt that way after Peter Gabriel left that they were a little more commercial. And like, yeah, it got to that point for sure sold a lot of records with that. But also made some really fucking good music too. And and like again, I just feel like Phil Collins is underappreciated, but he, but he was a he is currently a seller musician stellar vocalist a great songwriter. And that song to me while it sounds poppy. I think it's also really complex. And so I appreciate and I will say I've I've listened to a live version of Phil Collins singing lamb lies down on Broadway. It kind of surpasses any of the original version for me or anybody else saying that besides you. Out of the studio kind take my MARTINI with me. It's my glass. But yeah, okay. I'm going to check that out. I mean, I think that it's just very good. But it also could I mean, I also really love. Peter Gabriel to do not get me wrong. I really love Peter Gabriel. But there's just the sweet fondness for Phil Collins, my heart. So maybe that's that's coloring the way that I listen to the so it could very well be. But the fact remains that thirty five forty years later, this is you know, it's a good cut. You know? It's it's interesting. It's it's melodic the horns are smoking. And once I once that baseline grabbed me, you know, and I'm not listening with thirteen year old ears too bad because they listened a lot better actually functioned better. What do you say? Yes. Seriously, Martha hoople ruined my here five, but you know, once once I caught that baseline, and I'm like, oh, wait a minute. There's something here. Something mardi let that it's cheese. No, there's there's a lot. We are at the sixty minute point Lawrence. So what I'd like to do if it's okay, I'd like to have you come back and and round out your list.

"gabriel genesis" Discussed on The Loudini Rock and Roll Circus
"Great. I feel like it's sort of underrated though 'cause they always seem to be like an afterthought on lists of different things. And I don't know sort of an underrated type to my in my opinion. But I do like silent city is of stranger. I believe in love Queen of the Reich. The lady were black who's my favorite songs. Okay. Number three, number two, number two. Genesis gonna do. Yes. Maybe later English English Robin for nineteen sixty seven hundred Genesis. And I'm not gonna explain it to you because you need to smack in the head with tack hammer. However, I discovered that I don't necessarily like Peter Gabriel Genesis. I like Collins Genesis. Well, that isn't no. But I'm sitting there leader Gabriel, the progressive lamb, again, they're they're magnum opus. They're like. This lamb lies down Broadway that album is their big. Yes. Record with with Peter Gabriel where it really kind of all came together that is one of those bands way to nudity for me. Like, I really honestly when they dropped the progressive thing became more like pop and brought in more like Aren be types that I like that so much better. I just don't think I it just it was it was progressive. But it was not rock. It was just something else. I just didn't like all right. But I think it's pretty bomb that they like will not got rid of Peter Gabriel, basically quit. And then they're drummer took over as a singer. And they still were freaking amazing. They were bit Phil Collins transplant. I think that's pretty awesome. Even though I would is awesome. I totally agree with you. Even though I discovered I did like Phil cone Dopp day, just dropped progressing. So to number two curious different of one. Floyd. Okay. You going to say like, you know, bumble foot or some crazy thing Floyd is going to be. I'm gonna say this Russia be my number one not going to get letters. Good. I I only don't like rush because it is sort of like a thing with my ex husband. However, I do I did go see to concerts. I did enjoy them. They're not going on my list. They would be number one. If that wasn't a thing, however, Pink Floyd is fantastic. As number one. They've been around since nineteen sixty five they had several lineup changes as so the other bands are a lot of the other bands. And I mean, they sold over fifty million copies of dark side of the moon alone worldwide. I mean, they're pretty awesome. Their shows were awesome, very, colorful and fun. And like they've had. Oh my gosh. What are the ones that were awesome? Dirk side of the moon. Wish you were here animals the wall, the final cut, you know, lots of fantastic things, and I have like seventy five songs written on here for like my favorites. I think that Pink Floyd like rush is one of those progressive bands just consistently put out really good records, just consist everytime. They went out and they got together in the studio. They usually came up with something really really cool Russian Pink Floyd or two bands that I can actually listen to the records and not have to change the songs. And again, like I said, it's very difficult music to do. What's interesting about rush is that that I think put them in a class all by themselves is that they were able to be progressive even when they were playing shorter songs like a good example Solly Tom Sawyer is that is crazy tune. There's no song that sounds like soil before or since it is in a it's like an genre all by itself. It sounds like aliens. It's like crazy. Nobody can like what the fuck is Tom Sawyer. It's insane. It's like I mean, it's just one of those songs, but it's a pop song. I mean, it's it's it's progressive, and they do all these little things that I do all these different parts just like progressive, except somehow they they will down to like, I think four minutes. I mean, it's. Not it's not like the side one of twenty one twelve or something like that. It's like, you know, they really, and I just feel like that is some such an amazing record. I just don't and I love I think they did great records after that. But I don't think that they did another record where achieved that. Thing musically where they were able to somehow retained progressiveness it seems like on their other albums when they play shorter tunes. They sounded more like a straight Rochman like like distant early warning time stand still and cold fire. Those are great great up just rock tunes. They're not really progressive. But somehow on moving pictures they were able to do this. I mean, they've they have a hit song instrumental. That's there's very few hairs hardly any instrumental. We could do podcast on. There's probably ten hits that were instrumental over the years. And why Why's he is one of them? That in itself is massive accomplishment. Okay. And look at the kind of tune, it is it's crazy. That's another song. That sounds like it came from outer space. So I think I think that I think Russia's kind of a class all by themselves. They try in my opinion, they transcend what progressive rock is because they are able to do something. And I just think think couplings first of all it's testament, the amazing musicianship in the band. It's also testament to the fact that these guys are tight, I mean, they were broS they love each other. They enjoy spending time together, and they were really passionate what they wanted to play music. You know, these other bands Lil, you know, go out, and you know, they got all kind of side projects and are doing this. And that and don't keep the focus on the one. Right. And while I know Getty Lee and outside in both solo records one time for the most. And I know he's he did outside doesn't song with the guys from that trailer park, boys. Oh, yeah. They were unfairly. Yeah. Right. And know, they're big south park man's. I get that. But for the most part, they just it's been three of them. So I think that that has a lot into and I think the same way with Pink Floyd. Even after Roger waters left, Richard Wright, Nick, Mason and Gilmour. I mean, I think those guys would just really locked in the new what how three of them worked how how other worked that could play off each other really really, well, they could bring ideas together. And they knew just one of those things that you don't get when you're constantly changing numbers. You can't do that. It just it doesn't it though. It's not going to be when a half to have them. It's not gonna flow. It's not gonna flow. You're not gonna have the kind of consistency of great music album for album decade after decade. So with rush kind of being a category. All by if I had to pick my top three my top three progressive bands are Pink Floyd, Kansas and rush, although I really wanna put Kansas number one for kind of like you like personal reasons. Kansas was a band that like one man's changed? My life. They just when I heard that that band, they blew my mind completely. Because of the fact that they were progressive, and they were so rock and roll at the same time they had that a lot like you. Listen to the all the breakdowns and all the jamming and stuff in carry on sun. It's got that swagger. You know, what I mean, it's got that rock and roll their plant. This risks are all real sassy and kind of comic Aerosmith and as grooves, you know, going on that the two Qataris playing each other. And I don't hear you don't hear that rush. I love Reggie here that don't hear the Pink Floyd. No, there's none of that Pink Floyd the closest time causing pink. Floyd is a disco song another brick in the wall part is a disco song. Yeah. I get it. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I mean that I could see I roller skated to that song that was going to be our class on. I mean, it's and it's got got killer guitar, and as well, so those are just those would probably be my top three with maybe. Yes. Number four because I was a Steve hall was a big influence on me and the fragile album. Just that was another was seminar. You picking Kansas is your number one. I would love to Kansas. But I just feel like I just feel like I kind of have to give it to rush just because Russia's rush my thing with Russia's I- Kansas did a bunch of stupid stuff afterwards. Like like, they got whole because the couple of guys in the band got religious. And like it kinda like pulled the band in weird directions and lost their groove. You know, rush just way more consistent record after record. I mean, there's something I like on every single record that they've done every single record. I don't how many like what nine thousand albums. I even did a record record covers. I think where they where they did. Like just song that they grew up listening to they play heart full of soul. He's like, you know, you know, and they sound cool on it. It just you know. So I kinda I would I just would have to give it to them. But my history with progressive rock is really Kansas.

"There are a lot of actors and writers musicians who get involved in political causes and charities and find ways to give back, but it's hard to think of many artists who've so deeply and consistently used their stature and their influence to help others as Peter Gabriel a couple of years ago. The singer Taylor swift told NPR that Peter Gabriel had a huge influence on her musically because his approach was so innovative in a head of its time. And that he was quote remarkable at giving people what they want. But didn't think they want it the same could very well be said of his work to make the world a better place. So you're only sixty eight years old as we fit here this London hotel room, not far from Notting hill. And when you look back, you're still have lots more to do. But when you look back is there anything you would have done differently. I think you know. When you get reflective. You know, always thinking my death bed. I'm not reading care about anything to do with work. It's the people you love treating them. Right. And I think I could have done some things better there. But I've had a really interesting life. And I push myself to do things that were go where I was afraid what I was in co- uncomfortable in and always got a lot back from it. So I feel very grateful very lucky and lots of ways that's Peter Gabriel. He was interviewed by Mary Jordan who by day is a correspondent for the Washington Post.

"And. A bunch of us had really started hearing what we thought were incredible artists from other countries around the world were never going to get on our radio at that time and those maybe a couple of record stores where you could find them easy in London. And so we thought let's can event together and bring a lot of people from around the world. To extend the reach of these artists from around the globe. Peter Gabriel and the woman festival gave birth to a studio and a record label called real world. If you go on their website, you'll see over a hundred of their artists listed musicians from Africa Asia the Middle East Europe, north America, South America, Oceania, the Caribbean and the Indian subcontinent sometimes together on the same album. I really worry right now that we got this whole tied moving of politicians in many countries that are becoming elected trading on fear and hate and division, and and racism is underlying that and this of the immigrant as the enemy whereas in who was very few countries. Want built out of and by immigrants, you know, history. Our history is always moving and flowing and. Olis extremist hate filled anti then stuff is silent thing. I'll bet nature which I'm still convinced as. I would like to see a young young people many of whom still idealistic as they always own. Create some sort of movement, and you know, hippy movement was what happened when I was a kid. And I think we need young people to generate some sort of back to this extremist populist monopoly for media. Which is. There used to be so positive about the power of technology and a mobile phone in the hands of a poor person. Could give limitless knowledge are you as optimistic about the power of technology now one hundred percent? That the potential of technology, you know? I was at this price didn't deal the night. And and they have projects now to use technology to feed a billion people to get kids. But Conrado right reading and writing in any language within eighteen months. I mean, we have a project we're trying to kickstart about streaming medical treatment as because when the digital revolution hits medicine, not just in diagnostics and treatment. It's going to get access to people around the world in the same way that the phone gave people access to communication too, we compete Lia to Google, you know, that's it's very powerful. But I think people who I believe working for themselves using media much more effectively than people who. Working full for mankind. Peter Gabriel going back at least to nineteen Eighty-nine was finding ways to use technology for good that year. He founded an organization called witness, their slogan is see it film it change. It people often think it was inspired by the Rodney King incident when a bystander videotaped Los Angeles police officers as they brutally beat Rodney King during an arrest. But the truth is Peter Gabriel's organization witness was already in the works before that day. It grew out of the Amnesty International human rights now tour, what was very clear whenever someone had suffered a human rights abuse. And they manage to get on video or they got their experience. And they were telling the story on video. It was much tougher for those in power to bury that story and. You know, people would respond emotionally to to the video content, and so Reebok human rights foundation who had funded the amnesty tool had this. I made a proposal to try and bring in an entity either within the foundation separate would use video technology and trying on activists some people who find themselves and human rights struggle with video and. Eventually that took a while that was adopted a now, I think we have the same opportunity with data. That's an amazing group cold front sick architecture. They have amazingly detailed approach the data. But we are moving to the age when video can be faked much better. So what's next? So I think it's data rich. Okay. So they would look at for instance, save some work on Bohm's in Syria, and they've taken photos from everyone's camera around tomboy, the Bom was dropped and recreated three dimensional flow. Matt of the cloud created by the bomb that also been able to identify the Bom and the manufacturer suchlike. Forensic evidence in in supreme detail Nate create a time line. So it's basically like creating a three-dimensional version of. A bad event. I mean, they don't they don't get the they just present the evidence and the evidence speaks for itself. This is the next generation of human rights campaigning. Do you spend time on this? You know, you can sit at a beautiful piano in your beautiful studio outside bath and England. Well, if think it's exciting and always my dad was electrical engineer inventor, and he came up with some with an Italian sort of thing Donna program, which was so electric democracy home shopping education on demand, but this was nineteen seventy-one access through the rotary dial telephone. So it was a little ahead of his time. But his mission was sort of empowering technology. So that is part of what press my buttons is. When you see people that can use technology to great advantage. There's one other significant project we have to at least touch on before we go that's been a labor of love for Peter Gabriel and one of his proudest achievements. It's called the elders. The idea grew out of conversations that Gabriel was having with his friend the business. Magnate Richard Branson about the desperate need for wisdom in world affairs. An seemed that the were individuals around the world people respected at the same time as losing trust in governments institutions and politicians. They came up with a list of elder statesman. And we're trying to think of how they could possibly pull off getting such an illustrious, but far flung group to agree. Get on the same page and try moving the world a little closer toward peace Justice and human rights with both concluded that Mandela had more of a sort of moral currency having out of twenty seven years jail, trusted, his enemy to be build the future with him after they killed and tortured many of his friends, that's a pretty big leap that most leaders. On not capable of. It was a huge long shot. But in two thousand one they got their chance over lunch with the then president of South Africa. We did on page and dollar was really not very impressed. Again. He said, I'm sure people in power that wanna bunch of old times into fearing. But by the end of the meal, he said there was this time when they asked me to intervene with Hutus took zipping of slaughtering each other in Rwanda and the young generals on both sides. Actually, we only gonna earning going to negotiate with you everyone else he has gotten agenda, but with you it's like token to our dad, and we trust you, but you have no interest other than a good outcome for everyone. And so that was the sort of currency that persuaded him to take it on. But it still took another few years to to get it, you know, because he was being hustle by every well meaning person in the world who knew that Mandela magic. Spring crew some very Dustin whatever it was they were trying to do so met the hustler in Peter give no richest bad housing. And so, but yeah, eventually came around, and we had this launch in two thousand seven and show bug. In this Fulmer court building where in a lot of his black calling sipping sent to jail and so on. It was some amazing moment. The elders is now a full fledged organization that tackles arrange of pressing international issues and the elders themselves. They're sixteen of them come from almost as many corners of the world as the musicians on Peter Gabriel's real world record label one of the elders by the way is former US president Jimmy Carter who will be the featured guest on the next episode of this podcast. But I digress. A little. There

"This song introduced you Sutin door to audiences outside of Africa inside Africa. He was already a superstar perhaps the biggest of all time. Peter Gabriel didn't just use that mesmerizing voice on the song. He invited indoor to tour with him when his mega hit albums. So came out in nineteen eighty six two years later, you Sutin door was one of the featured artists along with Peter Gabriel and Bruce Springsteen and sting entry C Chapman on the human rights now tour for Amnesty International the Philadelphia stop on the tour, by the way is the concert. I referred to at the top. Where I I saw Peter Gabriel live. It was one for the ages our interview or marriage Orden ask Gabriel how he made that turn from rockstar to political rockstar while I sort of fell into human rights for the I didn't. You know came from a comfortable background men. My when I put my calling card in. I think was when I wrote the song Biko and. You know, I've been interested in what goes on in the world when Steve Biko was arrested a lot of people felt that the public- surrounding his arrest would be enough to protect him. So there was a real sense of shock when we already was but he'd being murdered. Stephen Biko was an activist in South Africa during apartheid and was leader of the black consciousness movement. When he died at the hands of state security officers in nineteen seventy seven twenty thousand people attended his funeral. Peter Gabriel's song Biko came out three years later. It became one of the most powerful anti-apartheid human rights songs ever recorded an actually head pretty big political impact. Whoa. No hood, people would sing it in South Africa, and it was Houston rallies and so on so that. Stadiums. So that was it was great to hear. I mean, when we did the human rights now to fight it was towards the end of the apartheid government and the were interesting discussions. Whether we should go to South Africa or not because we being honest by the anti-apartheid movement, not to go cultural boycott yet Houston, do and Tracy Chapman. The blackout is with us. They actually know this is part of a process of opens things up liberalizes. Some we had those discussions and we ended up. Bill Graham was there used these two planes one full of gear and the other full of musicians and crew and and occasionally when gigs can't Soto people go scattered us in a we'd be there with a map of the world from where can we land our planes? That was some quite unlike any other tour. Sort of life changing experience for many of us because we human rights me, something, you, you know, you read about seeing the the guardian newspaper, but. We hadn't really met many people around the world that I've been tortured lost loved ones seventy that they were talking to us, and and it's very hard then at that point to walk away. And I found the very compelling. I was also shocked that people could go through something experiences, and then have the horrors totally denied buried, and forgotten it, it was I think it was important in the membership of amnesty was doubled around the world as a result of that tour and for all of us as musicians, I think it changed the way we saw a role and how did it change? Well, made us convinced actually, you know, you may not change the world, but you can have an impact you can be part of a process the questions and. Proposes something different. And you've said music is a universal language it draws people together and prove as well as anything the stupidity of racism. Well, we put together this festival which is still going now was nineteen eighty. We started work on it and eighty-two office dependents, wo matte world of music and dance. And.

I'm talking, of course, about in your eyes. It would be very hard for any interviewer to talk to Peter Gabriel about his life and work without coming around to asking the in your eyes question and our interview or married. Jordan was no exception. What did Peter Gabriel thinks she wanted to know when he saw John cusak. Forgive me, Lloyd Doppler blasting the song from a boombox held high over his head to back the girl in say anything the scene is what made say anything the romantic teen classic that it is.

I see in your eyes. You know, the the words they're right. But light heat your is these are the same words in a lot of love songs. What is it about the order or the Melanie behind why to some of these love songs like that one laughed? Well. I was in love with a lot of African music around that time and bits of written Senegal. But one of the ideas interested me in Africa music, is that a love song could be, you know, a love for a woman all love of God. And to could be confused with no problem that they could be about love. Whereas in our society, you know, spiritual was one side, so sexual romantic was another and. So that fusion was what I was trying to explore lyrically. And and in the music was definitely some African influence, and I think so it has a life too that. Flows effortlessly, and then, you know, as working with you soon who does amazing singing, it is an Djelic voice at the end. So I think a combination of of those things help to to to work. This

"When you listen to a soundtrack work, you realize that you can clearly hear some essential Peter Gabriel nece, even without its voice the atmosphere. The rhythms the influence and input of world music, the simultaneous feeling of timelessness and Moderna, although fans usually think first and foremost of his voice and lyrics. Peter Gabriel said in this interview with Jordan that is a songwriter would always felt best to him was melody harmony and rhythm, and sometimes it was will come easily. But for me, that's a slow. More difficult to get past the Samsa mine tunnel sensor and having owned a studio now watched many bands, come in euro from seeing a group of players sitting around what I would consider the poor unfortunate vocalist who's struggling to squeeze a few woods out. So trying to get something that you feel says main summing to you will mean something to other people is is work. You know, I think talent is hugely overrated. I think most of its how book so update success equation. How what percent is hard work. And what percent is talent? The way I look at talent is an any Beyonce is just languages. In other words, if I was dropped in any country in the world. And in order to survive had to learn some of the language. I would find a way to do it. Some people will be quick I'm better mode that than others, but everyone could do it. And I feel the same with writing music with painting. Whatever creative format is if you really believed some that you'd swallow the pill the would destroy you in twelve months time, if you hadn't proved talent in a certain area. You would be amazed. What she could do. And how good you could be, you know, and I think people, you know, we're creatures naturally most of us full of self doubt. And you need to have conviction that does something worthwhile that you can do. And I think a lot of people I know who end up to in creative stuff either. I think the visa shit. All they think the the best thing in the world. And possibly both at the same time. So it's to manage that sort of power way. So that you can actually keep on working hard is what you need to learn. Some people are going to get that foster. Find it easier and be more eloquent with it. But it should exclude. No one and everyone has their own voice. And the possibility of doing some as you know, let enthusiasm Beal compass. It's a message that was reinforced for him at the academy of chiefs London summit in two thousand seventeen one of the beautiful things that happens at the academy summit is that onerous from wildly different disciplines are able to connect in commune. Peter Gabriel found himself sitting next to the renowned biologist, sir. John girton over dinner. He told me when he was at school of all students in the. School of which two hundred fifty he was number two hundred fifty and signs, and he found a teacher afterwards who inspired him and allowed him to think actually I can do this. And you know, he's now go to Nobel prize and. So that's what I say to young people. Now is that don't let any obstacle on people discourage you from what you're passionate about. It should be like dogs going in the park. You know, you go in there. With your tail wagging, you sniff anything interesting and you jump on it. Peter Gabriel is passionate about a lot of things and has jumped at it all songwriting and singing, of course, family life, but also opening doors for musicians from around the world, and developing technology and campaigning for human rights. So if he had to describe his core talent, a think hustler. I'm trying to get things to happen. And I work hard. I think probably it's said I have managed to fool myself into believing slings a possible wearing what did you learn about getting over the hurdles to make something happen? It's that. Yeah. Win, but you need to put yourself in in the right place in. One of the people I was talking to about this said in the Kabbalah is in saying that if you get very sick, you change your name and change your address, and actually that's quite smart because you're putting your mental framework in a different environment. And I think to get something done allow yourself to be this other thing, and, you know, the baggage in the what the pasta syndrome, I'm not going to be able to do this. Or all these people saying this stuff about me, and maybe they're ripe and that allows you to show that out and say, okay, doesn't that? Actually, you know. Let's just give it a go and go for it. And a really I think the main thing for young people is going to be plenty of doubt and nays has. Trust. I have what I call my little voice. And it sometimes says things to me that noon rational and an I try whenever I can't follow. It. Little boys is actually more helpful than the big voice. Yeah. Little voice is is intuitive instinct in the and we I think we will have that intend to block it out very easily. Is there anything you can do to imply a little? My wife recently, come out of cancer and. So have spent a little time thinking about. How people function what makes them feel good? Keeps that health. And so on. And one of the recommendations for people is. Devised. Think of everyone, you know. Who makes you feel good and bigger who makes you feel bad and smaller.

What's working for in whole where we instinctively at ease. Fini were going with the flow where are we feeding reopen and he just do more of the right stuff? Well fed which pretty much brings us back to the moment that Peter Gabriel listened to his little voice telling him to leave his very successful rock band.

"Let's go back to costumes which were fantastic. Those those costumes you came out were stunning. What was the idea behind that psyche to but the idea was to get rich and famous? We were in a group that was sort of disappearing into oblivion. I mean that was one side of it. But there was another side, which was an evil Lucien. We love the sound of twelve string guitars of its was old days. So meant the one electron acuteness. You know, three guys with thirty six strings, they come on and would sit there twiddling Nobes and. I mean until they the tunnels in in chin and the so the long pauses between each song, and if you're in a small club and is not ins and bunch musicians. Just got something going and then sitting down all the energies been dissipated. They look to the mug behind the microphone to do something. So I started telling stories, and so partly the characters coming out and these stories and emerging an and we had on one of them a character with pointed created with folks head and readdress. So and I sat around with with pulled Conroy was working our record company time, he was saying why don't we get someone to ground the gig in the folks hidden readdress, also a mess with give go so. When my wife's wardrobe pulled out readdress, which at that point on could I was thin enough to get into it. And we got the sort of folks had made up. Remember the first gigs? Word was in this full Mable ring in Dublin, which was not exactly the most sort of enlightened transgender varmint. And. There was a shock literally. You could hear a pin drop when I will out his costume. And I thought oh, that's interesting. And the band, of course, didn't really know that I was going to do this. I've mentioned something with folks. But didn't discuss it. Because a new the who know be majority vote going my way. And the same, you know, when I came out with a whole lot more costumes rainbow. But. Well under following day. We got on the front page of melody maker. And suddenly, you know from fifty pounds of week the head we were on one hundred fifty so, you know, life was looking so they will practical advantages to to the costumes, but it was actually a lot of fun. And sometimes you know, when you come out, and this we're keyboard sound dry is in them. I'm wearing the sort of you the makeup and bat wings. It was a little like a Sifi moment and a new people to some other place and think the musicians in the band were both the pulled and delighted. Other people start copying them because they're quite a lot of people that started doing about Landis kind of wild things. Neil Bogart said he persuaded this group cool kissed Todd wearing stuff, but the stories very different from that. So. I dunno. But you know. On belly was always in would dress. So he was their head of us. We did one concert with him in the roundhouse here, and it was with the living theatre, and it was one of these hippie festival things the probably forty people on stage probably twenty two in the audience. With was miserable events. But. But it was interesting that was my first encounter with with Bowie. Genesis was so successful so young. But then you're only twenty five years old and you walked away. Why? You know, we were I'm quite fond of all to the state, but it's fan politics is as just classic. And you know, go to the point where to get something done you'd have to persuade. Tony not we will often best friends worst enemies, I would symptoms twin swayed in that what I wanted was his idea, and and he was very protective keyboard, even when anyone else getting near his keyboard. Whereas I wanted to express myself played with that. But then I think it was decisive thing when my first daughter Anna was born, and they didn't think she would survive, and there was a whole number of things. So she might wife Jill wasn't allowed to see her than she was in an incubator. It was the most traumatic experience in my life at that point. And the band were very unappreciative Phil had had a child then. But on the whole we were trying to get a lamb lies down on Broadway recorded at that time that was in fall, west Wales and drive was pretty hellish getting there, I'm back and. There was no question in my mind that family comes first. So I think things sound that point in certain ways, you could say Peter Gabriel was a reluctant rockstar, or at least been ambivalent one. Who was never willing to buy into all the trappings? He was never a heavy drinker drug user, for example, and for sure becoming a husband and a father so early in his career and living through that trauma. He just described crystallized what was important for him and truth were mixture of are higher and Loa niches. So there's definitely pardon me that wanted attention and goals, and the other part of me, you know, just love music and wanted to follow my heart. So. I think the truth is is always somewhere. You know, composite and. I always thought of myself as a weekend rockstar. A fun place to get your ego stroked, but took sick if it's your Ponant abode right around the time. He was thinking about leaving Genesis Peter Gabriel got a call from the film director, William freakin who just made the exorcist and the French connection freakin had read a surreal little story.

So he jumped at the chance nothing really came to fruition from it.

Well, it was like the sun coming out just this womb. And then this amazing voice band generosity. You know? I mean Springsteen gives a ton when he performs, but but Otis Pinson. In my opinion.

"gabriel genesis" Discussed on What It Takes
"A lot of people want to be a rockstar. Why does it feel to be a rockstar and have you look out, and there's thousands of people, and they know every lyric and they're moving to your music filling whereas a bit like the seven year old jumping on the table and family get together and showing off, but it's the biggest sale, but actually I'm a real mixture between us of show of extrovert and a very shy person. But when you feel the engagement, and you feel the warmth of the people is like nothing else. It's an amazing experience great privilege. Feeling is mutual. Peter Gabriel speaking on behalf of rock fans. If I may I saw Peter Gabriel and concert in nineteen eighty eight. And it was an amazing experience and the great privilege. Gabriel was at the peak of his fame, man. He'd recently had huge hits off his album. So including this one the video for sledgehammer, by the way, still holds the record for the number of MTV video awards nine. Good. Of course. Peter Gabriel had been one of the biggest stars of the nineteen seventies to as front man for the rock band. Genesis but much of his career has also been dedicated to the cause of human rights and to bringing hundreds of musicians from around the world to international attention though festival the studio and a record label he created. So we've got music politics and much more from Peter Gabriel on this episode of what it takes a podcast about passion vision, and perseverance from the academy of chief -ment. I'm Alice Winkler. This child is gifted and I heard that enough that I started to believe if you have the opportunity not a perfect opportunity, and you don't take it. You may never have another show. It always so clear. It was just like the picture started to form itself. There was new. We ally could prevail over the truth dot NIST over light there over life. Every day. I wake up and decide today, I'm going to love my life decide. If they're gonna break your leg. Once when you go in that play stay out of there, and then along companies differential experiences that you don't look for you don't plan for the boy, you better not miss him. Peter Gabriel is sixty nine now when he took the stage at the academy of chief -ment summit in London in two thousand seventeen he didn't look anything like his former rocker self no bat wing costume or fluorescent makeup from his Genesis days. No, white flappy jacket or gelled hair from the eighties. In fact, not much hair at all just a fringe of white ago tea and glasses, but still those piercing blue eyes and still that sandy warm voice, which captivated all the scholars and honorees gathered when he was asked to give an impromptu speech, I started off. Spectacular candidate for the academy of non-achievement. My parents who quite worried I was fitting most of my exams at school and. But I had found something that I truly loved when we were taken away on holiday, and it was a band playing used to watch the drama and whenever. My parents who want to go to bed. I would just sit there hypnotize thinking I wanna hit things and make a loud noise, and I was sent to very formal traditional English school and music was a place. We had a basement where we with a record player, and I could turn it up loud on I could feel things and I could dance around and feel like a free man, and it was a wonderful release. And then I got interested in actually trying to put songs together. And it was. A songwriter was really the goal for me. Then with the bands that I could occupy myself with as as a drum not a very good Trump really enthusiastic, but just know very talented, but managed to get my find my way into jazz band and into a rock band blues band. So anyone that would have me? I'd be delighted and we started dreaming of some writing. I'm going to devote here because I'm improvising to a story that I liked about another songwriter who was determined to get Elvis Presley to sing one of his songs. So he's so that he was he tried Colin music where controlling music publisher, and they controlled everything Elvis ever recorded amiss guy was absolutely obsessed with a single idea of getting a song of his recorded by Elvis, so he heard he was going to play in Las Vegas again and come out of retirement. So he sat in the toilet where he thought Elvis would go and as a human being he needed to do his normal things, and waited and waited and waited and in the end. The great man came to do business in the cabin next to him, and he summoned up enormous courage and asked if he could give them a song and Elvis said, well, if it's any good, I'll know just sing it to me. And so from one cabin to another.

"Peter and using Genesis with Phil Collins yes yes I. Honestly remember Genesis all this hits but I was a kid were there people in the eighties that would make the? Argument like Peter Gabriel was a better musician than Phil conduct were? There people. That were like teen Peter Gabriel versus Phil. Collins good question I think it would be a. Better, singer Peter Gabriel. Is a. Little more eclectic artists in Genesis was a much more eclectic band. With Peter Gabriel I think you could, argue they had more hits. With Phil Collins as the lead vocalist I feel concept of sold way more records I'm just curious if there's people? That are like teen Peter Gabriel versus team Phil Collins those are? Legit debate. Back then isn't Phil Collins play multiple instruments Drums Oh. Great, songwriter I never saw him play guitar that he played. Guitar maybe I'm wrong the the Peter, Gabriel Genesis era was really, good but it was different than Phil Collins came along and it became more mass. Appeal I think with with Phil Collins Phil had a ton of hits of course on his own as a solo artist Peter Gabriel Peter to to. Yeah this is one of them right here so we were talking. About the Broncos and then earlier we're. Talking about Jimmy Garoppolo forty Niners quarterback apparently dating a porn star according to TMZ and. Kathy Lee disappointed because she had a, big crush on. Him and apparently she's not the only one Brit McHenry former ESPN report I think. She's a Fox News contributor she kinda gained notoriety for berating parking lot attendant. In DC and being caught on video and then when her contract was up it, wasn't renewed she on Twitter said Jimmy Garoppolo has a. Franchise quarterback of a prominent NFL team he should have more? Values in class and parading a porn star. In, LA. Slam, me for saying that began t someone in his camp. Said the same thing kind of pretty, much what I said was, Kathy's point here's my issue is why did he pick that porn star like I. Think there's better looking porn stars Maybe that's? His type of girl they don't know that What the heart wants yeah that's who we. Always, date girls. Like her porn stars need. Love too. Yeah they do they, do just, like. Ron Jeremy leads love and fricks wife. Dated Ron Jeremy he would not. Have married her true I mean that would have happened I just had. To, put it. In perspective if you know. Somebody you. Marry would if your, husband Gaffey, had. Dated this girl that Jimmy Garoppolo Mia Yeah we would not be, we would not have We go back to the Broncos like I said I'm optimistic, and I am an optimistic. Person generally speaking anyway but I'm also a realist but. I feel like this Broncos team will be? Better as you mentioned. The over under in Vegas. Seven and a. Half I would take the over I think eight Nate is a pretty easy prediction to, make for this, team in maybe nine, at? Seven ten at six even if things go right they could be attended takes team if case keenum if, he plays like. He, did last year for. Minnesota there tended sixty And they're, in the playoffs And. I do love the draft the wide receiver Cortlandt Sutton is going to be an impact player right. Away for the Denver Broncos and, as we said last segment they only had one impact player out of the draft last year Garrett Bowles, and. And he was just okay also add to, that, though from last year Jake but who wasn't an impact player because he was coming off the AC l. injury you could sort of count. In this, year's draft class I mean he is a, new addition to the field and I think he's a, guy that can be, five eight touchdowns I mean undrafted and every fantasy football league that I'm in Really I think he'll. Be exactly, what Kyle Rudolph was for case last year, in Minnesota and I hope he's healthy because yeah he, could be. A big contributor on this team next year and moving forward DeJean Hamilton another. Guy that they're very very excited about so they have some serious competition at wide, receiver some of these guys that. They picked up last year in the draft like McKinsey..
