Well, my friend Jason wanted to know if I was still alive based on my lack of recent activity on the ol’ blog, so I figured I would post this YouTube video of a great 1987 Peter Gabriel peformance of his “Lay Your Hands on Me” (which should not in any way be confused with the immensely craptacular song of the same name by Bon Jovi).
Back in PG’s younger days, he would do a little crowd surfing during this song. Of course, as he got older, he stopped doing it. But the energy of the performance lives on in this video.
This is just so freakin’ awesome…
One thought on “YouTube: Peter Gabriel – “Lay Your Hands on Me””
I saw him perform a few years earlier, crowd surfing and all, in San Francisco. It was an amazing concert!
I purchased tickets to see this show in Reno, NV but unfortunately he cancelled the stop due to poor ticket sales. I think he was very underrated. Too bad- people don’t know what they have missed!
