Art Rock Show: A Tribute to Genesis

Voor de laatste week zetten we een klassiek band in het zonnetje. Genesis ontstond bij Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey in 1967. De meest commercieel succesvolle en langdurige line-up bestond uit toetsenist Tony Banks, bassist en gitarist Mike Rutherford en drummer en zanger Phil Collins. Andere belangrijke leden waren de Peter Gabriel (zang) en Steve Hackett (gitaar).

De groep verkocht 21,5 miljoen RIAA-gecertificeerde albums verkocht in de VS en de wereldwijde verkoop wordt geschat tussen de 100 miljoen en 150 miljoen platen. Bruce Eder van All Music: “Genesis started life as a progressive rock band, in the manner of Yes and King Crimson, before a series of membership changes brought about a transformation in their sound, into one of the most successful pop/rock bands of the 1980s and 1990s.

In addition, the group has provided a launching pad for the superstardom of members Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, and star solo careers for members Tony Banks, Michael Rutherford, and Steve Hackett. Their roots go back to 1965 and a pair of rival groups, the Garden Wall and the Anon, formed by students at the Charterhouse School in Godalming, Surrey. They merged, with the result that 15-year-olds Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, and Michael Rutherford joined with 14-year-old Anthony Phillips, calling themselves the New Anon and recording a six-song demo featuring songs primarily written by Rutherford and Phillips.”
