I donít think there will ever be a full-blown reunion with PG, mainly because of PG but also because of PCís health and (im)possible role in such a reunion. When it comes to a three man reunion: what exactly would they do? They did a tour in 2007 which included most of their hit songs and a fair selection of the most important old songs. Is it really meaningful to (try to) do almost the same thing again? I see two other options:
1) Record a new album, but I donít think that will happen, because the music business has changed and the band will not have the status it once had on the record market. Also, PC seems reluctant even to release a solo album, despite the fact he has a lot of songs (as he has admitted).
2) Play live, but with a different approach. Genesis never played a live acoustic set with PC, although of course the 1998 tour had an acoustic section. In 2000 however TB, MR, PC and DS reunited for a one-off show in honour of Tony Smith. Maybe that would be an interesting concept for a full show? I mean, acoustic or semi-acoustic versions of their old songs. That way they will do something artistically new and I think it would be an easier role for PC. Also PG and SH could do a guest appearance for some 70s songs. With the played down acoustic concept noone will expect PC and PG to sing like they did or jump around the stage like they did.
