Genesis band bio

Genesis is a British progressive rock band formed in 1967. The original lineup consisted of Peter Gabriel (vocals), Tony Banks (keyboards), Mike Rutherford (bass guitar and guitars), and Phil Collins (drums and percussion). Over the years, the band underwent several lineup changes, with Collins eventually taking over as lead vocalist after Gabriel’s departure.

Genesis became known for their elaborate and theatrical live shows, which often included elaborate costumes, projections, and Gabriel’s use of various characters and personas. The band’s music was also marked by their intricate arrangements, intricate keyboard and guitar work, and poetic and cerebral lyrics.

Genesis was popular in many countries, including the UK, Europe, North America, Australia, and Japan. Their popularity was due to their innovative and diverse style of progressive rock, as well as their ability to appeal to a wide range of audiences. Over the years, they became one of the most successful and influential progressive rock bands of all time, selling millions of records and performing to large crowds at concerts around the world.

Some of their most popular songs include “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway,” “Land of Confusion,” “Invisible Touch,” “Throwing It All Away,” and “I Can’t Dance.” Genesis has sold over 150 million records worldwide and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In recent years, the band has reformed for several tours, and continues to be a hugely influential force in progressive rock and popular music.
