Peter Gabriel wasn’t around for his last induction in 2010, for his work as a member of Genesis. "It feels better when you’re here," he said backstage.

Gabriel said aspiring musicians should surround themselves with brilliance and, noting his early failures as a drummer, shouldn’t be afraid to try different things.

"Dream big, and let your imagination guide you, even if you end up dressing as a flower or a sexually transmitted disease," said Gabriel, known for his theatrical outfits during early Genesis days.

Coldplay singer Chris Martin credited Gabriel with creating a cathedral of sound and "he helped John Cusack get back his girlfriend in the movie ‘Say Anything.’" That movie’s climactic moment featured Gabriel’s song "In Your Eyes," and Gabriel performed a soaring version to celebrate his induction.

The first two artist managers were inducted into the Hall: the late Brian Epstein, of the Beatles, and Andrew Loog Oldham, of the Rolling Stones.
