As a member of Genesis, Peter Gabriel was an early builder of the progressive rock movement, a style that had emerged from the counter-culture days of the late 1960s, and which incorporated new instruments into a band's repertoire. Even after leaving Genesis, Peter Gabriel continued to produce progressive rock albums. True to the genre he helped pioneer, Peter Gabriel continued to take influences from all kinds of music, something which is apparent even in his early solo albums, but especially so in his modern works.
Peter Gabriel was born in Surrey, England, in 1950. He got into the music scene as a student at the prestigious Charterhouse School, forming Garden Wall with another future Genesis member, Tony Banks. The band lasted about a year, and shortly afterward, Peter Gabriel and Tony Banks joined up with fellow students Chris Stewart and Anthony Philips to form Genesis. Peter Gabriel brought with him a performance that was quite unique; he often performed in flamboyant costumes and introduced songs with dreamlike stories. As a lyricist, he introduced a number of fan favorites, including 1974's "I Know What I Like." Despite helping Genesis become a household name, Peter Gabriel decided in 1973 that it was time to move on, and quit after the "Out, Angels Out Tour."
Peter Gabriel immediately went to work on a series of self-titled albums, and had an early hit in "Solsbury Hill." However, his breakout work was his fifth album So, which contained both pop songs as well as ones with Gabriel's trademark experimentation. So produced five hit singles, including "Sledgehammer" and "In Your Eyes." Peter Gabriel next released Us, an album based on his, at the time, recent personal struggles. His most recent albums are Scratch My Back and New Blood, both of which highlight Peter Gabriel's musical experimentation.
