London: Singer Beyonce Knowles has revealed that she secretly admires veteran rocker Peter Gabriel.

The singer took a year-long break from her busy career to travel around the world, attending top music festivals like Coachella in California and Glastonbury.  And she admits that it was during that time when she learned to appreciate the music of former 'Genesis' star Gabriel, reported a website.

“I discovered after going to music festivals that I am a rock fan. I love the guitars, the phrasing, and the abandon of rock fans,” Beyonce told a magazine.
