2-Part Post: Peter Gabriel New Blood Played Free on Real World Oct 3 & Why It Sucks to be Me
Hello again, PG fans. New Blood now has a release date of Oct. 11 but you may hear to get to hear it for free on Monday, October 3 at Petergabriel.com. Starting at noon GMT (which is about 7am EST) Petergabriel.com will play one track per hour. I'm not sure how this will work out and, odds are, neither will Real World. Good luck!
PG is doing his "traveling salesman" bit in doing tons of promo for New Blood. Here's a list of some of the more notable interviews:
* National Public Radio (a half-hour interview)
* Rolling Stone (just a snippet of the as-yet-to-be-published full interview; unfortunately it's only the usual "when is Genesis getting back together" crap)
* PG interviewed by Elbow's lead singer, Guy Garvey
* ABC (American) interview
That should keep you busy for a while.
Now the part about why it sucks to be me. PG fans can stop here if they are looking for more PG news.
I've basically had a headache since August. My strong anchor of a Mom has drastically deteriorated and keeps deteriorating before my eyes. I'm doing most of the household chores, taking care of the pets and my Mom. There's not much energy left over to making money by writing. Not surprisingly, this has lead to an upsurge in my major depression symptoms and well as a more-or-less total liquidation of my bank savings. The good part is that my doctor increased my dosage of two medications and that leaves me stoned until my body adjusts to the dosage. The bad part is that eventually my body will adjust.
Now is a good time for PG's version of Arcade Fire's "My Body is a Cage", filmed at Berkeley in 2011:
