The Secret World tour in Rochester (opening night) was my first-ever concert. Damn. 21 years ago. I still love the shiat out of the live double album from that tour.

I remember that album.. I used to borrow it from my brother.

Something I'd also like to happen would be for Steven Wilson to re-master all of their albums up to and including Duke in 5.1 stereo surround like he did for King Crimson.

/And then Steven could reform Porcupine Tree and make another album and tour.
//And then he could re-master the early Yes albums.

(csb) My parents' house was about 10 miles as the crow flies from the Woodstock '94 concert site. I could hear the drums from "Biko" from their porch. (/csb)

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.


Bruford is a different drummer from Collins. I personally don't like the post-1980 Genesis much, and think they basically turned into a cruise ship pop band like Yes did, but Collins is an excellent drummer in his own right. Not such a great editor of his own work, but great on the skins and plates.

i can't see that happening. Genesis already released their entire catalog in 5.1 as box sets several years ago (around the time of their 2007 tour). i don't see why they'd do it again. i don't think those box sets sold very well.

Wilson has already done CTTE and The Yes Album.  CTTE was released late last year and The Yes Album is currently available as a pre-order.  By most accounts I've read (and the clips I've heard online), Wilson's CTTE is remarkably clearer than the original mix. Squire isn't quite as muddy in the mix anymore, for example.  it's been on my wish list for some time, I'll get around to ordering a copy eventually.

finally, i very recently read that Wilson is writing more solo material this year.  PT is not on the horizon. Gavin will be busy this year anyway (with King Crimson).

So much better than the rest. You think you've been blessed. But I know you.

Yes. I'm a Lamb and earlier fan. Phil should have stayed behind the kit.

My real hero is Tony Banks. He got me started playing.

I wanted to punch Phil for releasing that as a Genesis song instead of a b-side to farking Sussudio or something.

That showed up when Bruford played with Genesis on their '76-77 tours - he'd ad-lib a few things and sometimes it came out fantastic. Sometimes it fell flat. It made more sense to have Chester Thompson back there having great instincts for playing with Phil, and in particular it was a real kick to hear his Zappa drum riff (from Trouble Everyday) show up again when Genesis played 'Afterglow' live.

And Bruford's retired now anyway.

Having just come from the 'AC/DC is retiring & oh by the way Malcom is dying' thread, a Genesis reunion (or even a strong rumor of) is just what I need to lift my spirits a bit.  I hope if comes true even if it's just a money grab.

/I'd be willing to throw money at them if they came within say a four hour drive of me

I'd like to see Genesis reform with Kevin Gilbert replacing Collins. But that's been impossible for a long time now. :(

"Invisible Touch" is actually Tony's fault. Aside from that, most of the gooier pop Genesis songs are Mike Rutherford's fault - and you can see that if you can grit your teeth and sit through some Mike & the Mechanics.

On the other hand, most musicians would give their right leg to have the hook from 'Follow You Follow Me' fall in their lap like it did for Mike. It's overplayed as hell now, but it was a breath of fresh air in 1978 with nothing on the radio but disco and cheeseballads.

He is not bad on padded stools either, see the 2007 tour.

There pop sound was a group effort as can be heard in their solo projects, Tony not as much as Phil and Mike.

They were prog rock's GWAR.


Ha ha ha, I love that.

And yes, Musical Box is frickin' great.  Last year I went with a couple of buddies to see them do "Lamb" in its entirety, costumes and all, and it was amazing.  For the slideshow in the background they even had the honest to goodness physical slides used on the original tour, given to them by the member of Genesis.  I can't say enough about how great of job they do.

There must be some misunderstanding. This crushes me.

I didn't even know Peter Gabriel had a new album coming out.  Great news to hear though, he's amazing.  I wouldn't say no to a Genesis reunion.

The setlist:

Down and Out
No Reply At All (and since this'll be the last go-round, we will have a real horn section)
Silver Rainbow
Land of Confusion

(bring on Steve)

Blood on the Rooftops
Squonk
Inside and Out
drum duet/Wot Gorilla?/Los Endos

(unaccompanied bass pedal solo by Michael Rutherford...bring on Peter for)

The Musical Box
The Waiting Room/Back in NYC/Ravine/Carpet Crawlers
For Absent Friends
Firth of Fifth/I Know What I Like/Stagnation
it/Watcher of the Skies

Don't hold your breath. He's working on a new album. Based on past experience it'll be 5 to 10 years before anything's released.
