Peter Brian Gabriel (born February 13, 1950, in Chobham, Surrey, England) is an English musician. He first came to fame as the lead vocalist and flautist of the progressive rock group Genesis. After leaving Genesis, Gabriel went on to a successful solo career.
Security (1982) is the fourth album released by the British progressive rock musician Peter Gabriel. This album was originally released as Gabrielâ€™s fourth eponymous album, but was released in the United States as Security, which has since become its default title and was Gabriel's first album with Geffen Records in the US.
Peter Gabriel is the first album Peter Gabriel recorded after leaving the progressive rock band Genesis, and the first of four with the same eponymous title (as though each album were an issue of a magazine). Upon the album's release, Gabriel began touring with a seven-piece band under his own name.
Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel's second solo album, was released in 1978 to lukewarm reviews. The album is the second of four with the same eponymous title (as though each album were an issue of a magazine). Guitarist Robert Fripp served as producer, whose influence on the album is evident in the use of frippertronics on the track "Exposure".
Peter Gabriel, released in 1980, is Peter Gabriel's third eponymous album and his first (and only) for Mercury Records and re-issued in 1983 on Geffen Records. The album was met with wide critical acclaim and contains two of Gabriel's most famous songs, "Games Without Frontiers," which reached the U.S. Top 50, and "Biko".
