Innerviews: Security Project

Tribute bands are ten a penny, but few (if any) come with such a pedigree as the Peter Gabriel tribute band Security Project. In the linked art-icle, from the excellent Anil Prasad site Innerviews, band members are interviewed about their careers, experiences and choices. Of particular interest is drummer Jerry Marotta, who actually played with Gabriel from 1977 to 1986. I loved the background stories about the recording sessions of Gabriel's landmark solo albums from that era, including the anecdote about Kate Bush' contribution to the PG4 album: she did a perfect take the first time, but Peter kept asking her to do it over and over again so they could watch her sing. A very interesting read.
