Gabriel To Miss HoF Induction

11:01 AM Friday 2/12/10 |   |

Peter Gabriel won’t be joining his former Genesis bandmates when the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inducts the pioneer progressive rock band next month.

Hall Of Fame president Joel Peresman released a statement yesterday saying Gabriel will not make the March 15 ceremony because of touring commitments in Europe.

Genesis’ original lineup consisted of Gabriel along with Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett. Phil Collins, who joined as the band’s drummer in 1970, took over the lead vocalist chores after Gabriel’s departure in 1975. Genesis’ 1976 album – Trick Of the Tail – was the band’s first release featuring newly christened frontman Collins.

Gabriel is scheduled to begin a brief European tour in Paris March 22, and only has four shows scheduled in North America – April 28 in Montreal, April May 2 and 3 in New York City and May 7 in Los Angeles.

The induction ceremonies are scheduled for March 15 in New York City at the Waldorf Astoria. For more information, click here for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Web site.

    Most people don't even think of Gabriel when they think of Genesis.  Their main stream success came with Collins at the microphone.  This is another sham of the Rock n Roll HOF.  Like when they inducted Fleetwood Mac and 99% of people are looking at that stage saying who are those two guys that are up there.  Everyone knows Mick, Lindsey, John, Christine and Stevie.  I don't care about the Fleetwood Mac Blues Band if they were so great you never would have brought in the other three members.  

    If Kiss ever goes in it should be Stanley, Simmons, Criss, and Freeley.  Singer, Carr, Vincent and Kulick have no place in the HOF.

    I imagine Peter managed his schedule to provide this excuse.  He has no interest in playing the old material any more, or even talking about it.  He sees the guys regularly, at least Tony and Mike, not sure about Phil, Steve, and Anthony.  But the possibility of a five or six piece reunion is a thing of the past.  Even if WOMAD goes broke again!  :)

    Forget that the HOF induction is a FULL WEEK before Gabriel starts his Euro mini-tour.  Forget that Phil Collins flew across the Atlantic Ocean to perform at both the UK and US Live Aid concerts - the SAME DAY.  I guess Gabriel is waiting for a SUPER BOWL INVITATION to re-unite with the old band.

    peter doesnt seem to want to have any affiliation with these guys. the past is well the past. first the rumours of his being part of the last re-union tour and then because hackett wasnt interested he wasnt. basically the man left the band because of the direction they were going in back in 75. the one re-union he did with them in 82 is probably the last. he moved on 35 years ago.

      Yea,they don't care if Gabriel can't make it and the classic lineup don't play a few songs together.Obviously,Peter could re-schedule a day or two if he really wanted to be there.But the Hall of Fame don't care as long as they get memorabilia given them for free they can exploit like the event they make money off tickets from.Then they also want stuff that is'nt event really rock n roll so how can rock bands take it really serious?

    The RRHOF is a freakin joke.

    Poor planning on someone's part.  Peter should be there.
