New Issue Of Prog Is On Sale Today

The brand new issue of Prog is on sale today looking at The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway and Peter Gabriel’s departure from the band 40 years ago…

40 years ago it was the news that stunned the prog world: ‘Gabriel Out Of Genesis?’ ran the music paper headlines. On the back of the band’s most ambitious album ever, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, the band’s enigmatic frontman quit the band, throwing the burgeoning British rock institution into turmoil. We look back over that traumatic period in the Genesis history as the band and those around them recall just what went down.
