Peter Gabriel Inducted Into Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame

11 Apr

Peter Gabriel, already a member of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame for his work with Genesis, was inducted now as a solo artist. Kind, humble, and talented. Having worked with Peter on his So tour, I know firsthand the quiet authority he possesses. Congratulations to a great musician, a warm human being, and an inspiration to all artists.


In his acceptance speech, Peter Gabriel urged young musicians to use their imaginations.

“Surround yourself with brilliance. The brilliance of who you love being around — and the brilliance of their talent.”

He ended with a moving meditation on the power of music.

“Watch out for music. It should come with a health warning. It can be dangerous. It can make you feel so alive, so connected to the people around you, connected to what you are inside. It can make you think that the world should and could be a much better place. It can also make you very, very happy.”
