My Prog Hero: Kip Winger on why he loves Peter Gabriel
He’s the rock pin-up-turned-classical composer, but the Winger frontman won’t give up on Peter Gabriel
“I was a fan of Genesis and the first few Peter Gabriel solo records, but I really became fanatical in 1982 when Security was released. This exemplified the future for people like myself. The record stepped out of the norm so far that it was a total game changer. His choices and use of sounds, sampling and overall orchestration and production, was so cutting edge it was astounding. Lyrically it was above and beyond 99 percent of everything else.
