Synopsis

Peter Gabriel is as committed as ever to his beloved World Music and very publicly to his controversial political ideals. Troubled, complex and adventurous in both public and private life, Gabriel's paradoxes have intensified with time.

Der Verlag über das Buch

A Look at a Rock Visionary
In the 10 years that have passed since Spencer Bright's best-selling, authorized biography of Peter Gabriel was published, a lot of water — and some blood — has passed under the bridge. Always troubled, complex and bravely adventurous in both his private and public lives, Gabriel's brilliant paradoxes have intensified. As the angelic good looks mature, the shadow of a darker soul has emerged. With the end of his marriage and the affairs with Rosanna Arquette and Sinead O'Connor, Gabriel clings to his carefully guarded privacy. Originally published in 1989, this book has been completely revised and re-written. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

For years I searched store shelves in vain looking for a quality book on Peter Gabriel. When I at last looked online, I thought I had found what I needed. However, this biography reads more like a textbook than a warm or interesting biography. The author spliced the book together using available quotes and interviews, and seems to never have talked to Peter himself. And while there are many interesting tidbits, such as the fact that a schoolboy Gabriel once made a hat worn by Keith Richards of the Stones on TV, it really drags. Even I, a serious fan, found myself skipping through many sections. Worth the read? Yes. If you think of yourself as a serious fan. An enjoyable read? Not really. In fact, you may be disappointed in your hero when you learn how distant he was from his wife and family.

Mr. Bright has created a work that is readable and insightful about a man whose creativity and experimentation with rock sounds and textures is extraordinary. Especially interesting to this reader are the artist's own explanations of his lyrics, which are sometimes obscure (deliberately) but always interesting. Mr. Gabriel doesn't talk down to his listeners; he has matured and assumes we are maturing along with him. A definite must-read for anyone who is a fan of this long-term rock legend.

A welcome update to his previous work, Bright's new book still has the same positive and negative sides of the first edition. Excellent research is his finest point (he talked to people who knew the subject well and did give great insights), but the stress on all matters personal and private seems to me a bit over the top. Sure we want to know what kind of a person Peter is besides his rock-star persona, but the text doesn't always succeed in connecting this with Gabriel's musical output.
