Hi Mr. Peter Gabriel,
i'm an old time fan, since 1972, and i havent never write to you.
Now yes, i ask you one question:
What do you think about the Phil announce, his retirement from the music scenes?
Thankyou for the answer,
It depends - if he was in a bad mood:
"Shut your mouth
I know what you are
Don't say nothing
Keep your hands on the wheel
Don't turn around
This is for real"
If he was in a good mood:
"Dont give up
cos you have friends
Dont give up
Youre not beaten yet
Dont give up
I know you can make it good"

Phil is very commercial a businessman wanting to please the mass population. A Beatle brain musically a white pride common fool, predictable white power man.
With a typical following of yuppies and contemporary racist squares who are proud of the businessman.
A real disappointment he is I would have expected a rock, but got a trademark white boi.
if 6 was 9

Aw, who are we gonna bag on now?
C'mon Phil, 'to suffer the slings and arrows of outreageous fortune', and all that stuff like that there.
When you put your art out on display, you have to expect negative, as well as the positive reactions.
If it's REAL art, probably more.
You just got dealt a bad hand from the 'get go' when you had to sing all those negative words about a beloved, although somewhat mythical person. It's not your fault that you didn't write the words. It was all about getting the job in those days, right?
All about the money?
Well now you've got it, I hope it keeps you warm at night.

wow, so phil claims to be retiring eh?
like so many others who make such a fuss about so-called retirement and then 3- 5 years later come out out and make big splashy news about coming out of their so-called retirement.
did he fax the info to us?
he is famous for faxing good-byes??
and besides the recent genesis reunion,
what has he done for us lately?
good luck phil!!!
and unless you decide to record new music with genesis, retirement is a very good place for you to be!
but now for Brand X-
that IS news worthy,
and they do not need Phil!
I was fortunate enough to see 3 times while I lived in Los Angeles,
the great great bass player Percy Ross and the great great heavy guitar player John Goodsall in the incarnation of
The Fire Merchants!
Wow, was that heavy!
Thanks, I will be watching for more news on this current event.

that's really insightful of you dalihendrix.
glo27 April 2008 at 8:19pmPosts: 289 (0 today)Status: offline
but dalihendrix, your avatar really says it all. too bad that you piss on Jimi's choice of "experience". but of course, it was another white man conspiracy right?

Well i also think that Dalihendrix's descripition is fairly accurate.
However, i am amused by you avatar where you feel the need to scratch out the faces of the two white musician who backed Jimi in The Experience. Kinda shows that you hold some racist attitudes yourself. There is no denying that Jimi was THE MAN in that band. It was, after all the JIMI HENDRIX Experience. But Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell were excelllent musicians (otherwise Jimi would not have been playing with them) who deserve better than to be scratched out of yours or anybody's history. So what's your point?
Yep - I Remember Bowie saying "This is my last tour with my old music" - went to the shows - and low and behold a year or so later he was out there singing Rebel Rebel again - and what about the Who's 5 or 6 last Tour - so Ha maybe he just wants to focus on something else.
And as for Brand X my concert promoter friend is working on more scoop on that - he usually is right about these thing so I will let you know what he says.
I have seen X a couple of times twice with Phil and once without - great stuff no matter.

Please tell us how you really feel.
F-ing hilarious! Glad you went there.
Honestly, Phil is a fantastic percussionist, and I loved his first two solo albums, and his work with Genesis up to Duke. Oh, sure, there were a couple of good songs on Genesis: Genesis. But invisible Touch and beyond blew chunks. No Jacket Required, even with PG's and Sting's help, just sucked.
After "Hello, I Must Be Going" Phil sold out and bought in. I cringe now when I hear him sing "Against All Odds", and belts out the words "Take a look at me now-wow"
"No-wow?" Who says that? Seriously.
I try not to look at him now, so I can maintain some fond memories of him.
