Hi there


And of course "Bertie The Bisexual Drum Machine" that Genesis used on several tours.

I remember it was a common misconception that the Echo & the Bunnymen named the band after their drum machine “Echo” - they couldn’t have given it any more credit that that! laugh

I've always wondered about ZZ Top...only three of them on stage, yet there are electric pianos in "Cheap Sunglasses" as well as both a lead and rhythm guitar in songs like "Gimme All Your Lovin'"...it is very possible they are playing along with a tape on that one, as the drummer Frank seemed to start the song while listening to a click track...plus he's wearing headphones.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=332RI6-OYKk This is from 1983 and you can faintly hear the lead guitar during the intro. I think there are three guitars in the studio version.

(Also this is interesting: From the intro till the end, there is a kick drum on every beat of the song , even with the breaks!)

I thought it was really classy that the credits for Live Over Europe and When In Rome simply said "Genesis are" and listed all five of them.

Conversely, it really bugs me when some bands' live videos are edited to ignore or seriously limit the amount you see of the "extra" members. I think it assumes the audience is either really dumb or the band is really shallow to think that the only important things to see are the main members of a group.
