Peter Gabriel not only gave us Genesis but also 'Shock the Monkey'

Ex frontman of Genesis and absolutely brilliant solo artist. All his songs and albums are worth checking out. His work ranges from bombastic power rock(Peter Gabriel 1) to synth pop(SO) to haunting instrumental music(Passion).

All brilliant stuff.
Buy a Peter Gabriel album now, fool!
