Genesis (band)

Genesis were an English rock band formed at Charterhouse School, Surrey, in 1967. The most successful and longest-lasting line-up consisted of keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and drummer/singer Phil Collins. Significant former members were original lead singer Peter Gabriel, guitarists Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett; the band moved from folk music to progressive rock in the 1970s, before moving towards pop at the end of the decade. They have sold 21.5 million copies of their albums in the United States, with worldwide sales of between 100 million and 150 million. Formed by five Charterhouse pupils including Banks, Rutherford and Phillips, Genesis were named by former pupil Jonathan King, who arranged for them to record several unsuccessful singles and their debut album From Genesis to Revelation in 1968. After splitting with King, the group began to tour professionally, signed with Charisma Records and recorded Trespass in the progressive rock style. Following the departure of Phillips, Genesis recruited Collins and Hackett and recorded Nursery Cryme.

Their live shows began to be centred on Gabriel's theatrical costumes and performances. They were first successful in mainland Europe, before entering the UK charts with Foxtrot. In 1973, they released Selling England by the Pound, which featured their first UK top 30 single "I Know What I Like"; the concept album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway followed in 1974, was promoted with a transatlantic tour featuring an elaborate stage show. Following the Lamb tour, Gabriel left Genesis in August 1975 to begin a solo career. After an unsuccessful search for a replacement, Collins took over as lead singer, while Genesis gained popularity in the UK and the US. Following A Trick of the Tail and Wind & Wuthering, Hackett left, reducing the band to Banks and Collins. Genesis' next album... And Then There Were Three... produced their first UK top ten and US top 30 single in 1978 with "Follow You Follow Me", they continued to gain commercial success with Duke and Genesis. They reached a peak of popularity with Invisible Touch, which featured five US top five singles, its title track reached number one there.

After the tour for We Can't Dance, Collins left Genesis in 1996 to focus on his solo career. Banks and Rutherford recruited Ray Wilson for Calling All Stations, but a lack of success in the US led to a group hiatus. Banks and Collins reunited for the Turn It On Again Tour in 2007. Though Genesis have not been active again since that tour, the trio participated in interviews for the 2014 BBC documentary Genesis: Together and Apart, their discography includes six live albums, six of which topped the UK chart. They have won numerous awards and nominations, including a Grammy Award for Best Concept Music Video with "Land of Confusion", inspired a number of tribute bands recreating Genesis shows from various stages of the band's career. In 2010, Genesis were inducted into the Roll Hall of Fame; the founding members of Genesis, singer Peter Gabriel, keyboardist Tony Banks, guitarist Anthony Phillips and guitarist Mike Rutherford, drummer Chris Stewart, met at Charterhouse School, a public school in Godalming, Surrey.

Banks and Gabriel arrived at the school in September 1963, Rutherford in September 1964, Phillips in April 1965. The five were members in one of the school's two bands. In January 1967, after both groups had split and Rutherford continued to write together and proceeded to make a demo tape at a friend's home-made studio, inviting Banks and Stewart to record with them in the process; the five recorded six songs: "Don't Want You Back", "Try a Little Sadness", "She's Beautiful", "That's Me", "Listen on Five", "Patricia", an instrumental. When they wished to have them professionally recorded they sought Charterhouse alumnus Jonathan King, who seemed a natural choice as their publisher and producer following the success of his 1965 UK top five single, "Everyone's Gone to the Moon". A group friend gave the tape to King, enthusiastic. Under King's direction, the group, aged between 15 and 17, signed a one-year recording contract with Decca Records. From August to December 1967, the five recorded a selection of potential singles at Regent Sound Studios on Denmark Street, where they attempted longer and more complex compositions, but King advised them to stick to more straightforward pop.

In response Banks and Gabriel wrote "The Silent Sun", a pastiche of the Bee Gees, one of King's favourite bands, recorded with orchestral arrangements added by Arthur Greenslade. The group exchanged various names for the band, including King's suggestion of Gabriel's Angels and Champagne Meadow from Phillips, before taking King's suggestion of Genesis, indicating the start of his production career. King chose "The Silent Sun" as their first single, with "That's Me" on the B-side, released in February 1968, it achieved some airplay on BBC Radio One and Radio Caroline but it failed to sell. A second single, "A Winter's Tale" / "One-Eyed Hound", followed in May 1968 which sold little. Three months Stewart left the group to continue with his studies, he was replaced by fellow Charterhouse pupil John Silver. King felt; the result, From Genesis to Revelation, was produced at Regent Sound in ten days during their school's summer break in August 1968. King assembled the tracks as a concept album which he
