Fatman Scoop (real name Isaac Freeman III) is a New York City hip hop artist and producer. Peter Gabriel is one of the founders of On Demand Distribution (OD2), an online music enterprise, and additionally is co-founder (with Brian Eno) of a musicians union called Mudda, short for "magnificent union of digitally downloading artists.". "It Takes Scoop" (single) (2004). Melanie sang on Gabriel's 2003 Growing Up tour. "Be Faithful" (single) (2003). Peter Gabriel has two daughters from his first marriage, Melanie and Anna, and a son, Isaac, from his second marriage. It has been reported that he suffers from bipolar disorder, but despite some claims, he never confirmed this information.
Gabriel's song "We Do What We're Told (Milgram's 37)" from So refers to Milgram's experiment, and in particular the 37 out of 40 subjects who showed complete obedience in one particular experiment. He has a long-standing interest in human rights, and launched the Witness program to supply video cameras to human rights activists to expose abuses. He has also recently been interested in multimedia projects, creating the Xplora and Eve CD-ROMs. He created the Real World Studios and record label to facilitate the creation and distribution of such music by various artists, and he has worked to educate Western culture about the work of such musicians as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Youssou N'dour.
This influence has increased over time, and he is the driving force behind the WOMAD (World of Music, Arts and Dance) movement. Gabriel has been interested in world music for many years, with the first musical evidence appearing on his third album. It was discovered that he had fallen asleep in front of the microphone, but had continued to sing. He also collaborated with Laurie Anderson on two versions of her composition "Excellent Birds" - one for her album, Mister Heartbreak, and a slightly different version called This is the Picture which appeared on cassette and CD versions of So. In 1987, when presenting Gabriel with an award for his music videos, Anderson related an occasion in which a recording session had gone late into the night and Gabriel's voice began to sound somewhat strange, almost dreamlike.
Another duet, "Don't Give Up" became a hit, however. Their duet of Roy Harper's "Another Day" was discussed for release as a single, but this never came to pass. He has collaborated with singer Kate Bush several times, including an appearance on her television special. A follow-up video for the song "Big Time" also broke new ground in music video animation and special effects.
The video won numerous awards at the 1987 MTV Music Video Awards, and set a new standard for art in the music video industry. Gabriel's song "Sledgehammer" was accompanied by a visually stunning music video, which was a collaboration with director Stephen Johnson, Aardman Animation, and the Brothers Quay. They are usually differentiated by number in order of release, or sleeve design. He famously refused to title his first four solo albums, since he wanted them to be considered as issues of a magazine instead of individual works.
"Games Without Frontiers" from his third album and "Shock the Monkey" from his fourth), Gabriel achieved his greatest popularity with songs from the 1986 So album, most notably "Sledgehammer" and "In Your Eyes.". His first solo success came with the single "Solsbury Hill", an autobiographical piece expressing his thoughts on leaving Genesis. Although early on he achieved critical success and some commercial success (e.g. Gabriel has had a long and successful career after unexpectedly leaving the band in 1975, with his position as lead singer then filled by drummer Phil Collins. On one occasion he broke a leg leaping into the crowd, but managed to climb back up onto the stage and finish the performance.
During "The Knife", a popular live song from the Trespass album, Gabriel would perform a stunt that, two decades later, became extremely common: stage diving. Genesis quickly become one of the most talked-about bands in the UK, largely due to Gabriel's flamboyant stage presence, which involved numerous bizarre costume changes and comical, dreamlike stories told as the introduction to each song. He first came to fame as a member of the progressive rock group Genesis, which he founded as a student at Charterhouse School with bandmates Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips, and Mike Rutherford. Peter Brian Gabriel, born February 13, 1950, in Cobham (Surrey), England, is an English musician.
