From their early years with Peter Gabriel to their run of chart hits fronted by Phil Collins, and beyond, Genesis have carved out an important place in music history. The group amazed fans and critics as they progressed from tiny clubs and 10-minute epic songs like 'The Musical Box', to sold out stadiums and pop hits like 'Invisible Touch' and 'I Can't Dance'. This book tells the whole story, from their humble beginnings at Charterhouse School, through Phil Collins' departure, right up to the present day, when the group seems to have split up. Author Robin Platts covers the band's history in great detail, drawing from his own interviews with past Genesis members and associates, and from extensive archival research. The book explores Genesis' career in great depth, including details about: the making of each album; how the group developed their songwriting approach and how it changed over three decades; why various members left and how the group survived those departures; details of bootlegs, demo tapes and unreleased recordings; information about each tour, including set lists; critical reaction to their records and concerts; a comprehensive discography; and many photographs of rare record sleeves and memorabilia. The book also includes a wealth of new information including the first ever interview with guitarist Mick Barnard. Even the most die-hard Genesis fan will find new revelations in this book. This is an essential guide to one of the most innovative rock groups ever.
