"Former Genesis tour manager Richard Macphail has announced that he will publish a new book about the band later this year. Titled Richard Macphail: My Book Of Genesis, it will launch at a date still to be confirmed in London in November this year.

He’s written the book with Chris Charlesworth and it will give readers an insider’s account of his life and times with the band and includes a foreword penned by Peter Gabriel. It will also feature contributions from all members of Genesis and be illustrated by 30 photographs."

Nice group photo, although the caption “TEENAGE CLASSICS” isn’t an entirely accurate description of them ... grin

Steve posted a sideways-on photo of the same scene on Twitter yesterday.

Has anyone got the book?

There is another version of the photo with Nick Mason, who Tony asked to come along & stand in for Phil.

Nick Mason? That's weird. There's another guy in the photo between Tony and Steve who is listed as Richard MacPhail (in a tweet I saw) but it clearly is not him. Maybe a bookstore guy?

Anyway, Nick Mason makes you think that the "Phil can't play drums" excuse isn't really stopping a reunion. Why not have Phil on assorted percussion and backing vocals (if his health permits) and another drummer to play the parts (probably not Nick Mason) maybe Phil's son or Chester or Nick D'Virgilio?

Sorry for trying to turn the thread into this, but it's an idea, isn't it?

Indeed. With Nick they should play the songs at least twice slower. grin

One of the best known photographers in the music industry from the late 60s onwards. Recently he's collected a lot of his work into books on specific bands - Genesis, Zeppelin, AC/DC, The Who etc. His website used to have thousands of examples of his work which you could view (thumbnails only) and buy, although it now just seems to be a platform for the books. He posts some on his Facebook page as well, worth a look.
