Default Phil Collins.....

Genesis became much better after Peter Gabriel left and Phil took over.

Discuss.

I haven't listened to enough Genesis to make an educated post. Now, if we were debating Pink Floyd after Roger Waters left, I'd have a lot more to add. I am excited to see people's responses. I love a good musical debate.

My 1st experience was when I was about 13. Went to Maine to visit family. Got there on like a Thursday and stayed until Monday.

My 2 cousins, 15 & 17, were going to some concert with friends and asked if I wanted to go. They told me it was an all day thing.

It was a Grateful Dead and friends concert.

The 5 other people probably smoked an 1/2 ounce during the round trip in the car. It was about an hour drive to get to the concert.

To top it off I had no clue who the Dead were and it was a long assed day

That sounds like an interesting time. How were they in concert?

My earliest childhood memory is of my mom looking for a screen so her and my bio dad could smoke up.

No clue. Was standing in the back of a general admission field waiting to go home all day. Maybe the pot killed my memories of the day

It's too late. I already reported everyone for failing to mention Phil in the last Genesis thread.

That said, I literally have zero input on this.

I agree Phil Collins was better...I know MOST people will disagree but I also think Van Halen was much better with Sammy Hagar.

These must be the three worst posts in the history of this forum.

Hell, solo DLR was better than anything that Hagar did with VH.

Roth is a hack. Singing is sub par. Haggar has pipes.

Did Haggar sissify VH? Probably. I still dig their stuff over Roth any day of the week.

Roth is a showman. The singing...yeah, I've heard better. But that's not what they were about. VH was about wicked licks and partying the f*** up.

I do like Hagar with Chickenfoot though!

Old Genesis with Peter Gabrial as the front man was far more innovative than the Phil Collins era, which IMO was when they became a 'main stream' pop band.
Just check out 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' to experience the early Genesis!
And I will say a little herbal influence' back in the day did not hinder the full effect of enjoying this classic album.

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your a**hole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.

Genesis was back ground noise for Phil to sing along to.

Genesis was no better or worse. Phil just showcased his God like singing talent and Peter Gabriel (Whos music I also love) wept
