Watch Peter Gabriel's best live performance video ever
Peter Gabriel is a genius when it comes to the video form. And yet, it's this montage of live performances of Solsbury Hill that really has me captivated.
The video includes live performances of Solsbury Hill from Rockpalast (1978), Live in Athens (1987), Secret World Live (1993), Growing Up Live (2003), New Blood Live (2011) and Back To Front (2013).
The song's general meaning - being prepared to lose what you have for what you might get - takes on greater significance when you consider Gabriel's departure from Genesis - an operation that the artist often referred to as "the machinery."
