Solsbury Hill: Peter Gabriel’s Psychic Phenomenon (The Spiritual Experience behind the Song) by Fernando Rodriguez
The cover art intrigued me enough so that I knew I had to purchase the book immediately!
The main theme theme consists of discussion about Peter Gabriel’s spiritual odyssey resulting from his meditation sessions on Solisbury Hill. Many schools of thought and philosophies are blended together so that the author gets his points across. This insightful tome also touches on some of Peter’s other solo work, as well as early Genesis material, and how it relates to the grand scheme. The book is beautifully translated, and one can hardly tell that English is Fernando’s second language.
Solisbury Hill is no less interesting and cerebral as a Genesis concert from the early ’70s. I highly recommend this insightful, well-written piece to other Peter Gabriel fans!
