Peter Gabriel: Say Goodbye to the Bubble Creature

Barbara Charone, Circus, 17 March 1977

BOB EZRIN CALLS him the overkill kid. And it's easy to see why. Right now Peter Gabriel wants to sandwich 16 complicated bars of music into a Piece entitled 'Midnight Bell'. Sitting at the piano he chews nervously on the remnants of a plastic coffee cup as the band try another take.

Total word count of piece: 1177
