Also, they don't need to do a full-blown rock show! They could do something acoustic. This performance, on the MMF Awards in 2000, is something I like very much: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfMghSTVDyU
Very true. One month I'll read something where Phil says Genesis will never happen. Or any music. The next, he'll be saying he wants to get back...to playing music. Maybe even with Genesis. So it goes back and forth.
What we need is Bob Geldof to organize a charity concert and ask for their help.

|Well, one has to ask oneself, why do four guys get along famously, but one guy is the odd man out? We don't really know, as we're not there, and we're not them. In other words, why do they keep snubbing Steve? My point is on some level he probably asks for it.
But basically I just want to see them all get along.
As for them reuniting, never say never. The 5-man reunion WAS going to happen if only Peter had said yes at the time. If Floyd can do it, Genesis can!
Do respect your love for Steve, though. I like him too. I followed him up until GTR, then kind of lost interest. I have seen him a couple times when he's toured his own material. Would see him again too, but not if he's wheeling out the old Genesis tracks. (Know What I Like encore is certainly cool, same way Mike, Phil and even Peter have done a couple Genesis tunes. But not an entire show.)

|Glam-rock was a big part of my teenage years, in fact Bowie was the first artist I really got into... to clarify I'm talkin' about the period approximately between '71 - '76 of which I guess '72 & '73 were the peak with seemingly everybody applying lip-gloss and eye-shadow regardless, even though some ended up looking like transexual hod-carriers!|
Some great singles came out of this period, a few of mine are and I make no apologies if one or two are a little cheesy;
'The Jean Genie' - David Bowie
'Hellraiser' - Sweet
'Pyjamarama' - Roxy Music
'My Coo Ca Choo' - Alvin Stardust
'Hello Hello' - GG (controversial I know, but seperating the music from what went on later, this is still a great glam-rock single).
'Standing in the Road' - Blackfoot Sue
'48 Crash' - Suzi Quatro
'Honaloochie Boogie' - Mott the Hoople
'Ballpark Incident' - Wizzard
'Son of My Father' - Chicory Tip
Inevitably I could go on, but you get the gist.
BTW I don't really consider later bands such as Motley Crue/Poison et al to be glam as they don't really fit with that whole zeitgiest.
I'm guessing Chessman will be contributing here
And why would you think I'd be contributing here?
Yep, glam was one of my favourite periods of music. Slade were my first favourite band, along with 10cc. Had posters of Slade, Sweet and GG. Loved Bowie during the Jean Genie period, liked some T-Rex but not as much. Loved Sweet, like Slade they always had good B-sides too. Mott The Hoople were ok, was never into Roxy as much but loved their look. Wizzard and Chicory Tip - yes! Got some of Alvin's singles too. Liked some of Suzi Quatro's stuff. Glad you mentioned Blackfoot Sue though, Standing In The Road was a great song with a superb heavy riff, loved the B-side too, though I can't remember the title of it now. Still got all my old singles, over 200 of them. Happy days.
