In its relatively short history, rock and roll has spawned only a few truly inventive and gifted performers who have redefined the form, grasped hold of its existing perimeters and exploded them, taking it to new and greater heights. Genesis is one such band, and their phenomenal 25 year history is a testimony to their consistently high artistic achievement. Formed at Charterhouse public school in the mid 1960s, Genesis went on to become one of the most challenging and inventive groups of the early 1970s only to weather the loss of Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett and emerge with Phil Collins as frontman. This book tells the band's full story, telling the story of Genesis from formation to the present day, including a chronicle of the members' solo careers, they also illustrate how important their contribution to popular music has been and offer the opportunity to reassess their recorded work. Featuring interviews and painstaking research, this will be the reference work on the band for years to come.
