25 Years Ago: Peter Gabriel Releases 'Passion'

Since its publication in 1955, Nikos Kazantazkis’ ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ has been a lightning rod of controversy.

From his early days as a founding member of Genesis to his huge solo successes in the ’80s and into his designation as a grand statesman of pop and rock today, Gabriel seemed like an obvious, and very well-deserved, inclusion to the latest class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Gabriel, already a member of the hall as part of Genesis, was inducted as a solo artist on Thursday, April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
