Peter Gabriel's insistence on writing the story and all the lyrics himself for The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
created friction amongst his bandmates. Tony Banks
recalled in Uncut
magazine October 2008: "Having done 'Supper's Ready
' (the 23-minute song on Foxtrot)
) we decided we wanted to go for a concept album, and make a double album. We agreed the concept, which Peter came up with. Then he said that he really wanted to write all the lyrics, which was difficult for us because we'd always split all the lyrics among us all."
