That is sad. I wonder what the mentioned "improper technique" was. (Not a drummer.)
 
2021-09-21 10:14:34 AM  
For those of you who think they are past their prime.  Think again.

I was there and the pit was absolutely brutal.

I lost both my walker and a cataract.

Bummer. I never managed to see them live when in their prime.

Wow. Even when you do it mostly right, the lifestyle kills you.

I did that once or twice as a desperate, horny teen.

good on him for still doing it. touring is tough, even on young people. cant imagine being my parents doing it.

i guess he wants to build up a war chest and make sure he leaves his kids a nice bit, coz you know they're making 7figs on this tour.

Improper technique seems a bit harsh. YOU try singing and playing the drums at the same time.

Look at side-by-side shots of him and Chester Thompson.

Chester is sitting upright, with the small of his back tucked in and his shoulders back.  His drums are positioned around him so he doesn't have to lean forward to hit them.

Phil is sitting slightly slumped over, with the small of his back protruding.  Then he has to crane his neck back in order to reach the microphone.  When he hits the crash cymbals hard, he leans forward.

Same here, and now I'm regretting it.  Our daughter was born right when they were touring in 2007; in the earlier years Genesis didn't tour close by and I didn't have the means to travel for a show.

Dead for Tax Reasons: I can feel it, coming in the chair tonight

We used to have a green rocking chair in our house that I liked to sit in as a kid and rock back and forth.  One day my dad told me that was the chair I was conceived in.

I never sat in the chair again.

Until very recently I thought the lyric was "Well, if you told me you were driving...I would not lend a hand..."

I thought, "Man, Phil is a dick to go on road trips with."
 
2021-09-21 10:29:54 AM  
Saw them live once. Had kind of shiatty seats way up on one side and about 5 minutes before intermission ended a guy sitting next to us puked all his drugs, booze, and guts all over the floor. GF and I booed out of there and started walking around. Found ourselves behind the stage and somehow nobody fscked with us so we saw the rest of the show looking down at the band, dead center about 10 feet above and 20 feet from Chester and Phil's drum kits

It was farking amaze balls

My husband is a drummer. He says playing the drums improves his singing.
 
2021-09-21 10:30:38 AM  
Damn, I really wanted to see some of those patented Genesis dance moves.
 
2021-09-21 10:31:43 AM  
Him coming back to the stage is against all odds.

It's a chance I'll have to take.
 
2021-09-21 10:33:45 AM  
Phil has been in pretty poor health for a while now. He's determined to finish this tour and hang it up. Sad day for music fans for sure.

Not everyone can do it, so some of the ones who could...good lord!

Anyway...I'm familiar with vertebrae crushing on nerves.   The pain can be "tolerable" 99% of the time, but sneeze or move just the wrong way for a second and you can damn near black out from the pain surge.  I hope he's getting it looked after by the pro's, and it takes a damn lot of courage to get up there and do what he's doing.
 
2021-09-21 10:33:58 AM  
Does he owe someone money?
 
2021-09-21 10:34:25 AM  
I didn't think Genesis would ever perform together again.. but yeah, that sounds like the last time.

I was a big fan in the late 80's and early 90's.

Yeah but Phil is tiny as in really small.

I've always been a bigger fan of the Gabriel-era Genesis but I saw the trio for the "And Then There Were Three" tour in the late 70's and Phil was an amazing showman. It's too bad that his health is failing too soon.

I saw the first Genesis "final show" in Hollywoo in 2007.  Thought about this tour but then read Phil couldn't play the drums any more and the tickets went on sale with steeeep prices.  Pass.

I might have to try this.  Playing with eyes closed is no big deal unless you have never sat behind that particularly kit before.
I can't sing while I play, I can barely even talk outside of a few grunts and maybe one or two words at a time.  Of course I work in insurance so I don't exactly have a need to learn.

Gyrfalcon: Wow. Even when you do it mostly right, the lifestyle kills you.


Not everyone can be Roger Daltrey.

He's in stupidly good condition physically, and in terms of his vocal ability, for someone his age.

In contrast, I can't even bear the thought of hearing what Paul McCartney sings like these days.

I don't even want to go see that. Go enjoy your wealth and @&#%ing relax a little already. It's ok. I wish you well; I don't need to watch your fading years.

Yeah, this killed my plans of saving up for good tickets.

Watching the pop-culture icons of my era trying to give it one last go before dropping out of relevance/existence is just depressing plain & simple.
We're old and should probably go quietly into the night/retirement home.

/now I'm depressed

///fine then, I'll do it myself! *"lifts spirits" via a bum-belch that lifts myself above my chair*

Sad to say but that's a Chiropractor's wet dream.  The adjusting to make the person comfortable at some level must be pain-staking (no pun intended).
