2. Who were Gary Barlow's influences?
In his autobiography, Gary named watching a performance of 'Just Can't Get Enough' by Depeche Mode on TV when he was 10 years old as a main influence, describing it as "mesmerising". He has credited Elton John with inspiring him to play the piano. In 2009, he named 'Don't Give Up' by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush as the song that had most inspired him. He said: "I don't think you can listen to this song without feeling inspired, it could save anybody."
