    I am interested in your opinion on this matter..

    Phil Collins vs. Peter Gabriel.. who wins?

    PS I am amazed to see you posting here, after seeing you perform with Beck on a late night talk show performance years ago left some indelible mark on my psyche.. you were playing a red Starfire or Cross and made me almost buy one just on principle. Oh, nostalgia! :bassist:

    More raw talent than Gabriel.

    Gabriel wins at singing. Collins wins in a fight, because he looks he could throw down like a stocky little British gangster from a Guy Ritchie movie.

    ^ Collins' phobia of bronze (or cymbal-less playing, if you'd like) is truly amazing.
    I mean, c'mon- Peter Gabriel's Intruder? Legendary!
    Miami Vice owes a heck of a lot to Phil, if you think about it.

    While we're slinging links.. this is probably my new favorite YouTube video:
    Genesis - The Musical Box (1972)
    .. and possibly the inspiration for my question..

    I agree with the comment about Collins having more raw talent.

    Whose solo albums would I rather listen to? Gabriel's, absolutely no contest.
