Some nice anecdotes and chat re: keyboard tech in his early years. He confirms FIVE pieces on his upcoming classical project 'I'm doing the opposite to Adele' smiley

This series has completely passed me by, so thanks for flagging it when this Genesis-related one is still available. I look forward to listening to it later. I love the "founder member of the Genesis"!

Interesting list of tracks played, albeit sadly including ELP. Subdivisions?! A favourite of mine but I've never heard it played on UK radio. Looking back through the playlists of previous episodes there are some other interesting acts - Kraftwerk, Tomita, Charlatans, Wendy Carlos, Gabriel, Talk Talk, Bowie.

Thanks a lot for uploading that interview! Very enjoyable to hear those anecdotes from Tony. For those who wish to have a listen, I must point out the interview begins at least 30 minutes into the broadcast.

Thanks! cheesy

Thanks for that, a lovely listen! I hadn't heard a lot of those stories before. The "Fireside Song" anecdote was particularly fun - I hadn't really clocked that the key changes up one semitone each time the verse-chorus transition happens.

Interesting that Tony managed to include three digs at Mike over the course of the interview: his propensity for falling out with the other members of Anon, his damaging of Tony's film music career by falling out with the director of The Shout, and his apparent negative portrayal of Tony in his book! Haven't heard such animosity before grin

Thanks for flagging that one. Typically self-deprecating Tony, saying he wrote the soundtrack for one of the worst films ever made.

Has anyone read the Italian biography? Iím guessing that given the shortage of scandal in his life, it must have featured a lot of technical information about his various keyboards, interspersed with details like how he rewired his kitchen .... laugh

It's strange Tony can't even bring himself to mention Ray Wilson by name!
