Publisher Description

To this day Genesis remain on of the most popular acts in rock music. Many fans hark back to the golden period of the early seventies, when the ranks included superb guitarist Steve Hackett and above all the charismatic front man Peter Gabriel.



This fully illustrated eBook tells the story of those halcyon days, when albums such as Nursery Cryme, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway and Foxtrot took the music scene by storm. The narrative tells the fascinating stories of the inspiration behind and the making of those remarkable albums that changed the face of rock music and still provide the backbone of the band’s live set to this very day.



The author reviews each of these albums as part of a full discography. Through the words of the band members themselves, we are afforded a glimpse of the creative process, the pressures of being part of one of the most successful rock groups in the world and of the tensions which led to the eventual departure of Gabriel from the band.

Mr McAllister ,

An Interesting Read; But Repetitive

I enjoyed this book as I'm a huge Genesis fan and it gave a good insight into the dynamics of the band through the Gabriel years.

Did find repetition of content throughout subsequent chapters though. Did like the Steve Hackett interview at the end. I'd recommend this as a read
