Yeah, I'm not...I'm not saying he's not alive friend. I'm saying I remember him contracting HIV and dying, and I'm asking whether anyone else remembers that.

I think this may be relevant as to his departure from Genesis

en.wikipedia.org...


The breaking point came with the difficult pregnancy of Gabriel's wife, Jill, and the subsequent birth of their first child, Anna-Marie. When he opted to stay with his sick daughter and wife, rather than record and tour, the resentment from the rest of the band led Gabriel to conclude that he had to leave the group. "Solsbury Hill", Gabriel's debut single as a solo artist, recorded in 1976 and appearing on the Car album in 1977, was written specifically about his departure from Genesis.

No, I don't remember that 'cos it never happened.

Perhaps you are just mistaken or confusing PG with one of numerous other musos who have succumbed to the excesses of a rock n roll lifestyle?

I think that is more likely than timeline shifts, intervention and all that stuff.

I remember something like this runing over the airwaves about him getting sick, I do remember talking about on the docks at a warehouse I was working at.....


Do you happen to remember any more about that conversation?

No, gatekeeper. I am in disagreement. I acknowledge that you don't share my memory.

Thank you.

Do you not entertain the thought, even just for a moment, that you may just simply be mistaken?

I'm usually very dismissive of Mandela-effect sort of stories


as you should,


you have just been stung by the Gabriel effect,




My impression was that it was a physical ailment, and that it was HIV.



have you tried searching if any musicians did die of aids around that time that you may have had an interest in?

You were probably looking at something more recent.

mg.co.za...

Kind of strange though following the Q script over the last few weeks

Train 1969
Hotel California
Henry VIII
Exodus, Revelations
A12
K4
Temples of Syrinx
Norway
Eagle
Solsbury Hill

Of course there were stories about the meaning of the James Taylor song Fire and Rain from 1970.
Really only the artists themselves know the truth about their works.

Of course I do! It's in the OP! Did...did you read it?

Interesting theory, thanks for sharing it. However, this feeling is distinct to me as coming from my pre-teen years, early 90s. I also don't really follow the whole Q thing.

I don't explicitly remember that he had died, to be honest. The memory is that he was sick, and that it was HIV, which was pretty much a death-sentence at the time. But it was definitely Peter Gabriel because I remember thinking how Sledgehammer was in poor taste because he was going to die from VD.

ETA: or had died.

I was in the US Navy during the time period you're talking about, in my 20s.

Peter Gabriel's album "So" came out during this time period with the songs "Sledgehammer" and "Big Time" which were instant hits, with the music videos being played on VH1 all the time.

He wasn't physically ill with any disease nor died.

However, there was a famous musician from a group, who DID have HIV and contracted AIDs and died exactly during the time period that you are thinking of:

Freddie Mercury from the band Queen.

1988–1992: Mercury: illness, death, and tribute

Queen and Freddie were a very well known band during that time, and at 10 years old, that may be what you were hearing, but now in present day are thinking it was Peter Gabriel instead

I remember hearing about him being sick, but i don't know how long ago that was. Years ago. I'm glad you brought the topic here, i liked watching the videos and remembering what i was doing when these songs first came out. Good memories..

That's a solid theory. At 10 I definitely knew who Queen was and who Freddie Mercury and Peter Gabriel were. I rode my bike to Shopko to buy A Night at the Opera on cassette with my own money, then had to ride home and back again because I didn't have quite enough money. I mentioned this in another post, but the context of the memory is that I found the sexual imagery in Sledgehammer uncomfortable, both because I was going through puberty and because I was under the impression that Gabriel was dying from VD. The feeling is pretty vivid in my mind. You're right though. I certainly could have confused them, or maybe was associating sex with a terminal illness via Freddie Mercury.

Thanks for keeping an open mind.

This isn't about an open mind. It is pure fact vs fiction.

This never happened, therefor fiction.

There are no competing timelines. That phenomenon has been created by bored, confused people on the internet, desperate for something special to talk about.

Case closed.
