Biography

A long-running British band whose catalog includes progressive rock albums, pop singles, and adult-contemporary hits, Genesis was formed in 1967 by Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford, and Tony Banks, all of whom were students at Charterhouse School in Godalming, Surrey. They were christened "Genesis" by record mogul Jonathan King, who saw them playing at Charterhouse and signed them to Decca Records. The band's 1969 debut, From Genesis to Revelation, failed to chart in the UK, but Genesis hit its stride in the 1970s with releases like Trespass (1970), Nursery Cryme (1971), Foxtrot (1972), the Number 3 album Selling England by the Pound (1973) and the Top 10 release The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (1976). After these releases, Gabriel left the group for a solo career, with drummer Phil Collins assuming frontman duties in 1975. With Collins at the helm, Genesis earned its first chart-topping album with 1978's Duke, featuring the Top 10 single Turn It On Again. This was followed by four additional Number 1 albums -- Abacab (1981), Genesis (1983), Invisible Touch (1986), and We Can't Dance (1991) - all of which were released during a period that also saw Phil Collins maintaining a wildly successful solo career. The group's last studio album, Calling All Stations, was released in 1997, featuring vocals from substitute frontman Ray Wilson. Reunion tours featuring the band's most successful lineup of Collins, Rutherford, and Banks followed during the first two decades of the 2000s, with albums like Live Over Europe 2007 and Genesis Live - 1973 to 2007 capturing the band's chemistry onstage. Another album, The Last Domino?, was released in 2021, compiling the band's hits into a multi-disc package.
