  1. A scene in Peter Gabriel: So -- Classic Albums reveals the secret behind Tony Levin's wonderful sound on "Don't Give Up:" A diaper used to mute the strings, lol. I've used foam, of course, and even swimmer's ear plugs, but never a diaper!

    Just watched that one myself. I love the quote from Tony: "I guess I thought England wouldn't have any diapers, because I had a case full of 'em!"
