When our Rock Honors bash premieres on Thursday night, it will be the first time in many years that lots of Genesis fans are able to see their heroes on stage. So the quesion is, what tunes are they tackling? The mid-80s line-up of Tony Banks, Phil Collins, and Mike Rutherford have a unique rapport, and their spins through "No Son of Mine" and "Turn It On Again" should whet the appetite of anyone planning on seeing them when their world tour brings them to America in the fall. Those fans will also get a kick out of Keane‘s marvelous salute to the veterans with an update of "That’s All."
Those familiar with the superb remastering job that the Rhino label does might want to celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary with the far-reaching, 12-disc Genesis collection, 1976-1982. Between a wealth of rarities and the enhanced sound, it’s hard to resist. Speaking of rarities, check VSPOT in the next couple of days to see the on-line only performance of "Los Endos."
What’s your fave Genesis tune?
