Genesis: Behind the Lines ISBN 9781894959674
Forty years after the release of their first single, Genesis are back. Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford have reunited for their first tour in over a decade, and anticipation is high for sold-out concerts across Europe and North America in summer 2007.
The author traces the group’s entire career, from the early days with Peter Gabriel, featuring progressive classics like "Supper’s Ready" and "The Musical Box"; through the Phil Collins years, with hits like "That’s All," "Invisible Touch" and "I Can’t Dance"; the post-Collins Genesis; and right up to the present day. The book tells the story of the music - the songs and how they were written and recorded; the concerts, from early college gigs to packed stadiums; and how Genesis’ music evolved over the past four decades.
Genesis: Behind the Lines is based on extensive archival research and the author’s own interviews with past and present band members and those who have worked closely with them. Also included is an extensive discography, including solo releases and a section on bootlegs, as well as numerous illustrations.
