Peter Gabriel Battles Developers

The solo career of former Genesis front man Peter Gabriel got off to a strong start in 1977 thanks in part to a song inspired by what the singer described as a 'spiritual experience' on a site in Somerset England overlooking a beautiful valley.  Solsbury Hill became the title of the song.  Gabriel has joined with residents of the area to fight expanded development plans for the Woolley Valley from going forward. Gabriel calls plans for more construction projects '...a mockery of our planning and environmental policies.' A press conference to officially launch the campaign to put a halt to the project takes place Wednesday (5/19).
