My earliest knowledge of Genesis as a group dates back to 1983.
Their album featured Illegal Alien, Mama, Taking It All Too Hard & That's All.
I was not too long before made aware of Phil Collins due to his In The Air Tonight. I recognized his voice and pieced together he was a member of the group.
CHOM would educate me on the fact that he had become the voice of Genesis after Peter Gabriel's departure. As a boy discovering the early Genesis work, including the more experimental music made with Gabriel, I gravitated towards the Phil Collins fronted Genesis product.
Phil Collins later had incredible success with No Jacket Required and my first concert at the legendary Montreal Forum would be Peter Gabriel for his So album tour.
