Solsbury Hill

It may come as a surprise to many people that Solsbury Hill, like Watership Down, is a real place.

Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel, intro on guitar Steve Lawson.

Peter Gabriel was the former front man of Genesis. On leaving Genesis he became heavily involved in World Music, including founding Womad.

I saw Genesis perform many years ago. A friend had wired himself into their sound system and was recording the concert to reel-to-reel tape.

Members of Genesis went to school not far from where I live.

Steve Lawson is a bass player. Try his album Believe In Peace and Improv #1 (performed at the house of Brian Wilson who made this lovely video).
