Gabriel Left Genesis To Go Solo

Some fans might not know this, but Peter Gabriel was the lead singer of Genesis. He left the band in the mid 1970’s and put out is first solo effort in 1977.  That one was a self titled work that went gold. He found himself in the top ten with the song “Solsbury Hill.” He came out with three self titled albums, but his 1980 effort was his most successful of the trio. That album’s biggest songs were Games Without Frontiers and Biko. He hit number one in England and France that year. Which album did American fans like the best?  It was his album titled “So” which also spawned the well known video to the song “Sledgehammer.” Eventually, he would release five singles from that album. He hit number one in five countries.

Sting Went Solo During His Time in The Police

Sting Solo Work Began In 1985 with the release of “The Dream of the Blue Turtles.” Since that time, he has released eleven solo albums.  His last release came out in 2013.  It was titled “The Last Ship.” This disk came after a ten year break between disks released.
