When fronting that old band whats-its-name, PG would do the song intros in French when they visited any French-speaking countres. I have no idea how good his French was, but quite frankly don't care!

I have to say Peter's French used to be much better. I saw him quite a few times live in France and although he's always making a point in introducing the songs in French, he seems to read from notes/prompter now or the introduction is limited to "cette chanson s'appelle." Long are the days when he was conducting TV interviews in French, even if a little hesitant, it was always welcome. I guess times have changed. Most people can speak English now and with globalisation, France is less protective of its language than it used to be

And it would be interesting to hear what speaking in French would do to his voice n'est-ce-pas? Would he roll his 'R's for instance?

I also think that Peter is not speaking French as much as he did in the 80's or 90's. He was very good at it, even in the early years with Genesis. His French is maybe not as good now as it used to be because he takes more time singing than speaking in concert!
