When they woke up yesterday, Peter Gabriel and the members of Kiss were just plain old ordinary multimillionaire rock stars. Today? They're some of the newest members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Kiss, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, Nirvana, Hall & Oates and Cat Stevens have been elected into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 2014 class. That means Deep Purple, Yes and the Zombies are among the nominees who were not chosen this year.
It's been only 13 years since Peter Gabriel released an album of new material, so we probably have a little while to go before he's ready to emerge with his next batch of songs. In the meantime, he's busy on the road, in the studio and -- in a recent Rolling Stone interview -- answering yet another round of questions about the prospect of a Genesis reunion.
