He became famous with Genesis but simply to call Peter Gabriel a pop star would be to sell him very short indeed. A quintessential Englishman, he has since pursued several overlapping careers, bringing to each of them his trademark preoccupation with quality control and restless curiosity. In 1975, after leaving the band that made him famous he diversified into writing movie soundtracks, various audio-visual ventures, tireless charity work and supporting major peace initiatives. He also became world music's most illustrious champion, launching the WOMAD festival and recording solo albums that featured musicians from every corner of the globe. These and several other careers make writing Peter Gabriel's biography an unusually challenging task, but Daryl Easlea has undertaken hours of new interviews with key friends, musicians, aides and confidants to get to the very heart and soul of Peter Gabriel, his music and his complex life. The result is an extraordinary biography of an extraordinary man.

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.
