Gabriel: "About judgmental attitudes being a barrier between people."
The "voice" represents judgment.
Original title was "First Stone." Gabriel changed it so it would be more personal and less biblical.
Gabriel wrote 3 sets of lyrics before guitarist David Rhodes helped him write the ones he would use.
The last song about Mozo, a mercurial stranger Gabriel created who would come and go, changing people's lives. He appeared in "On The Air," "Exposure", "Here Comes The Flood," "Red Rain," and "Down The Dolce Vita," but the Mozo story as a stage production or movie never developed.
Jules Shear - "All Through The Night"
Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
Cy Curnin of The Fixx
The man who brought us "Red Skies" and "Saved By Zero" is now an organic farmer in France.
