The Life and Music of Peter Gabriel

Neither becoming a parody of his past self nor endlessly seeking self-consciously new images, instead he took his creativeness and perfectionism into fresh fields.   Throughout his career, Gabriel has been a pioneer in the music industry, pushing pop music to new heights while having the foresight to support emerging genres and technologies. From his work as a member of Genesis, to his hugely successful solo career (including the groundbreaking music video for Sledgehammer), to his ambitious collaboration with international musicians and artists, Peter Gabriel has been one of the most innovative and versatile artists of the past thirty years.   Writing a biography of this extraordinary musician was no easy task, but Without Frontiers proves that Daryl Easlea is more than up to the job. In the end, a portrait emerges of a man who parlayed his first successful career into a dozen more and who, despite his high profile, has somehow managed to live an enviably normal life through it all.

This is very choppy reading, as every second line is a quote from some acquaintance of Mr. Gabriel's. This makes for a difficult, frustrating and ultimately boring read. Could not get through it. Some of the photo's were interesting - but not his best.

Gabriel is my favorite musician. I consider his 'Melt' album a masterpiece. I appreciated this book because it covered all aspects of his career including 'melt'. This book explains why his musical output has been sparse..he has been very busy with other endeavors!

The British author clearly is a fan of early Genesis, but he gives Gabriel's solo work due respect. Covers his career up through 2013.
