Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel (CD, Album)

Solsbury Hill is located near Bath, England, where Gabriel would often walk or jog. According to legend, a temple was built there to honor Apollo, god of light, music, and poetry. Solsbury Hill was the focus of a long and bitter dispute in the s between environmentalists and government concerning the construction of a 4 lane road which cuts deeply into the side of the hill.

However, the album does contain one instant classic: "Solsbury Hill." Gabriel's ode to his former band, it's a song where all points—production, instrumentation, composition and voice—connect. As a single, it reached No. 13 in the UK, while the album rose to No. 7 in the UK and No. 38 in the US.

So Solsbury Hill could essentially be about anything you want it to be about. But to Peter Gabriel it is about his decision to leave Genesis. He has made this quite clear. You could go line by line and it all makes perfect sense considering the situation he was in at the time. He was fed up with the industry and life as a rock star in general.
