Genesis Is Officially Reuniting For The First Time In 13 Years
When it comes to progressive rock, there are a handful of giants that really changed the game. Among them Yes, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Rush, and Queensryche. Of course, it's pretty near impossible to talk about the progressive genre without mentioning the one and only - Genesis.
Yeah, they're best known for giving Phil Collins his start in the music industry, first as the band's drummer, and then as it's lead singer after Peter Gabriel left the group. They had some pretty memorable tunes over the years. Of course, Phil usually gets the credit for turning the band into a major success, but Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford are equally responsible.
After much speculation, I'm thrilled to announce that Genesis are officially reuniting for the first time in 13 years. After suffering some back injuries, Phil Collins is no longer able to drum, which means he will only be in charge of vocal duties, however, Phil's 18 year old son will be taking his dad's place behind the drum kit for the upcoming reunion. The down side is that as it stands, there is only a UK tour scheduled, but with any luck they will come to the U.S. at some point in the near future.
