EDITORS’ NOTES

In the ‘70s, Peter Gabriel broke with prog rock's clean vocal style, adopting the bluesy timbre of singers like Otis Redding, Nina Simone, and Robert Johnson—whose “Hell Hound on My Trail” echoes in Genesis' “One Eyed Hound.” Solo, he learned from terse New Wavers like Talking Heads and African griots such as Youssou N'Dour, folding their sharp angles and bright colors into his crisp, modern pop.
