For the love of all that is holey.

YES

It would be nice but unless Phil's son has his dad's chops on the drums I don't think anything's happening until Pete and Phil's youngest kids get to the stage of life where they start asking "wait - you looked like WHAT back in the day? Oh, I gotta see that."

And then they all head out to a Musical Box concert.

I just started watching that show a while ago (I think it was during the Olympics when all my regular shows were on hiatus). I don't know what took me so long. I farking love it. And I'm not really a car guy.

I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual.

Yeah, he's had a bunch of back surgeries and apparently can't play drums on tour any more.

Also didn't one of the other members have some medical problems?

Hmmm...im intrigued now...I wonder if they will ever end up in Austin sometime? Hell, I would be willing to brave downtown Austin parking to see them :)

Tony Banks. A spot of gardener's palsy but he'll be right as rain in a week.

Phil looks a lot better lately. He got a standing O at the Knicks game yesterday, which is more than the Knicks can say for themselves.

I don't care about a Genesis reunion, but will be thrilled beyond measure if Gabriel gets out at least one more great studio album. Us and Up are two of my favorite albums of all time. The Growing Up show remains the best live concert I've seen.

Gabriel has taken his kids to a Musical Box show so that "they could see what their dad used to do"

When you've got five minutes to spare, watch his performance of Solsbury Hill with a full orchestra on the Letterman show. Good Great stuff.

I was going to post a link to some old Genesis, but I see you've got that covered.  Just about the year I was thinking of too.

Dancing with the moonlit knight indeed.

Personally, I wouldn't give a shiat if Genesis got back together without Phil Collins.  I never liked him anyway.  Maybe they could have Bootsy Collins fill in for him.  Now, that  would be funky.

Bill Bruford can play the drums.

Get out of town. Bruford is a great drummer but he lacks the amazing subtlety that Collins has. Cinema Show is a good example.

I've heard of Chester Thompson.  I wondered how many people and who he has played wtih so I did a search.


From Wikipedia:

Not to be confused with the keyboardist of the same name who has played with  Santana and Tower of Power, among others.

Oh, I thought he was the guy who played with Santana.  Oops.

How many people have a last name of Thompson and why do they keep naming their children Chester?

Okay, actually, he has played with Santana too....and Genesis...and even Frank Zappa.

How does Carlos do it?  I mean having 2 different people in the same band with the same name must be confusing.
 
2014-04-14 11:02:48 PM  
I'll say never. I cannot foresee a Genesis reunion under any circumstances. Maybe... MAYBE there's a snowball's chance in hell that they would play a one-off song or concert (a la Led Zeppelin) but an album or tour would be WAY too much work for amy of them to tolerate. Having said that, I would LOVE to be proven wrong. I think the only thing that would motivate a reunion would be mortality - not money.

In the meantime, a new Gabriel album is great news - and WAY overdue. "Up" was great. One of his best. Get back to work PG. None of us are getting any younger.

I saw him in San Diego,the Sports Arena.A terrible venue.But when he came out inside the giant ball and bounced to the beat of the song.Just wow.

Poor Peter really isn't aging well. Every new photo adds a couple of years.
He did the 25 anniversary So tour to fund a year-long family holiday so a quick Genesis reunion for a few bucks wouldn't be out of the question but that was then, this is now and his solo shows are always very very good.

I was at that show too. Shame that like most of the Up shows, it was undersold. It was an incredible performance. And Up still sounds great.

Any mention of new PG material is good news.

What song was he bouncing to about in Sonny Boy?I cant remember.

And I don't know what the occupancy of the arena is .Say 10,000 there were 4 maybe 5 thousand people there.

Phil can't drum anymore.  From what I've heard... nerve damage.  Sad, but I believe its true.

I approve this message!

And if Peter Gabriel wants to do a one-off, even if he has to use a relative of Phil's, would be OK by me. I think a new album, if he's willing to release new material, should be his priority though. Enough orchestral compilations by now.

Pardon me for being Captain Obvious and extremely jaded, but you guys realize this part and parcel every time someone who used to be in a band puts out an album on their own, right? They always drop a hint about the band possibly getting back together in order to get people to write/read articles, then they say "by the way, please buy my latest album and come see me perform the songs from it LIVE when I'm in your neck of the woods."

It is true - but it's also true that Phil has enough money to make Solomon blush and can afford a team of the finest neurosurgeons on the planet.

Song was Growing Up. Second cut off the Up album

You know, he was originally going to roll that ball out into the audience. Kind of like what Flaming Lips (Wayne Coyne) does with their bubble. But PG's bubble was pretty heavy and there was some concern about liability. And maybe even some concern over the fact the lagging ticket sales wouldn't see enough fans to hold it up!

I'd say maybe about 6000 at the SD show. Worst sold show I saw on that tour was Anaheim. They closed off the upper half of the arena and moved everyone down a level, no charge. Odd thing- I thought Anaheim was one of the best shows I have seen him and band do live. Poor ticket sales and a sore throat aside, the effort was top notch. But I am sure there were a  million other great things to do in the great city of Anaheim that night, so the poor turnout was totally understandable.

of course he does! it doesnt' hurt that he just wrote a book about The alamo either:

Somehow I don't think that'd be on the setlist.

If there's ever a reunion tour, Steve Hackett needs to get some love too. I don't think "Blood on the Rooftops" has ever been performed live.
