I come to think of Meat Loaf.


There are several examples, Ian Gillian came to mind.
One of my oldest friends is a die hard Deep Purple's fan, he followed them around no matter the line up, how many members died or defected or even how poor they sounded. He is not deluded though, he has ears and knows perfectly well they are shadows of what they used to be, and that time is particularly hard on the singer, particularly when songs were written decades ago with an amazing range at disposal.
He knows all that and still enjoys it and why not? Drumming is really not an issue for Genesis, they have had another drummer on stage for decades and we all got used to that and I guess we can kiss the drum duets good bye. I am not surprised by the fact that a large group of fans would still be able to enjoy stuff like Mama or TTT a couple of keys lower or that they don't mind at all the strong nasal tone of Phil's voice even on softer songs.
I am however suprised when I hear that it is all the same and even better in some cases, I think it does no justice to the kind of singer Phil became and was.
I am equally surprised when obvious stuff like: Phil can't drum and can't sing the way he used to either, is being questioned or considered tantamount to Phil-bashing.

Phil is now able to drum solidly for ten minutes a day. Who knows how much he will improve if he keeps practicing?

Well, he's been practicing for five months. So by May of 2019 he should be able to play for an hour.

That's really great news! This also makes a five man reunion with Phil drumming an actual possibility. Remember, it doesn't have to be a two hour concert! If Phil can drum some 10-15 minutes he has done what many seem to regard as his duty. Then he can play some bongo drums or percussion and do some duet singing with Peter at the front of the stage. A 30 minute set can be easily arranged this way. In 2005 Pink Floyd did a reunion set which was 23 minutes long. It doesn't have to be big and it doesn't have to be long. And it certainly doesn't have to look or sound as it did in 1975. We have plenty of bootlegs from 1972-1975 to listen to when we want to hear the 20+ year olds playing. Now, a reunion at this stage in their careers would be a really emotional experience and a wonderful closure to the Genesis chapter of music history.

Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): I read that Steve Hackett is talking to Peter Gabriel about a Genesis reunion. Do you know anything about that, and are you interested?

Mike Rutherford: (laughs) That’s all news to me. I can’t see it happening in the near future. But, never say never. The Peter and Steve scenario would require Phil playing drums, and he can’t play drums anymore like he used to. So, it makes that one a bit unlikely, I think.

Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): In that same article, Phil has said he was interested only if he could sing. Would it work if Phil and Peter sang?

Mike Rutherford: It would be a lovely idea, people say. I think people are saying, “Well, Phil can do some of the hits.” They forget a lot of the songs people know are songs during the Peter Gabriel days. I mean, it’s nice to see Phil back in action, and we’re doing a couple of shows with him. We’re going to play Hyde Park with him. That’ll be fun.

Mike does say some funny things sometimes... huh

Was it you or was it me? Or was it he or she?

True, to his defense though, not easy to answer the same questions over and over again and not having much to say about it and how could he? There's nothing there really.

So I guess Peter and Steve haven't contacted Mike yet.

Mike Rutherford has said there may be some reunion Genesis shows to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Hmm, seems to be quite strongly hinting at another three-piece reunion. I suppose it's understandable, but any 50th anniversary celebration that didn't involve Peter or Steve would still be massively disappointing to me. undecided
