Genesis Understand Gabriel’s Absence From Hall Of Fame
Genesis are not taking Peter Gabriel’s absence from the band’s induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as a snub.Keyboard player Tony Banks told Billboard: “(Gabriel) rang up and said, ‘Look, everyone’s going to say I’m trying to snub you and all the rest of it’. I said, ‘Well, just tell them we didn’t want you to come, so we’re snubbing you!’.
“No…I mean, it’s a fair enough thing. It would’ve been lovely if he could’ve come, but I understand his problem.”
Gabriel will miss the ceremony in New York on March 15, because he’s currently in rehearsals for his upcoming solo tour.
