Peter Hammill

"Peter Joseph Andrew Hammill (born 5 November 1948) is an English singer-songwriter, and a founding member of the progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator. Most noted for his vocal abilities, his main instruments are guitar and piano. He also acts as a record producer for his own recordings, and occasionally for other artists..."


Peter Hammill's vision of the future is typical of his attitude in general: "Hopefully I will go on doing what has to be done (which is known only in the moment of action) for as long and as honestly as possible......"

He is one of the personalities that are in the early '70s they most influenced me: the way of understanding music and excellent lyrics.
