Peter Gabriel is an Artist
That's the first thought I had after I woke up from my few hours of red-eye sleep on the plane ride from CA to MA yesterday morning. Out the window was the first light of day, and on the little tv screen seen through the chairs in front of me was Peter G, thanks to VH1 Classic. I watched the whole Sledgehammer video soundless, between those two seats. We had a moment. And now I remember what I always knew...Peter Gabriel is an artist. Try watching this video on mute, he really tried to make something. Dear Peter, thank you for introducing me to world music in middle school, and for making woodstock '99 so heavy with your performance of Biko, love dave.
