Trivia: Peter Gabriel
  • Enforced Method Acting: Gabriel is really being shocked by the lights he's wearing at the end of the "Sledgehammer" video.
  • Hipgnosis: Did the cover art for his first three albums.
  • Similarly Named Works: Up shares its name with a Pixar film and a Right Said Fred album.
  • What Could Have Been: David Bowie declined to cover one of Gabriel's songs for And I'll Scratch Yours. Granted, we got Brian Eno instead (who's pretty awesome in his own right), but it was still pretty disappointing. Radiohead also dropped out of the project.
  • For the film Say Anything Cameron Crowe wanted "In Your Eyes", Gabriel requested a rough cut of the film before he licensed the song. He told Crowe yes, but that he was disturbed by the overdose at the end. The producers had sent him the film Wired (a John Belushi biopic) instead.
