Original Genesis Members Reunite For ‘Together & Apart’ Documentary
We’ve been hearing rumors of a possible Genesis reunion from former lead singers Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins for months now, and it seems the possibility of said reunion is one step closer to becoming reality.
On Monday, Genesis keyboarding Tony Banks shared a photo on his Facebook page of the group’s beloved original lineup – Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford – back together for the first time since 1975 to work on a BBC documentary Genesis: Together and Apart.
“A feature length documentary on one of the most successful bands in rock history. From its first beginnings as a band of songwriters in the late 1960s to its final incarnation as a rock giant in the 1990s – via full-blown theatrical progressive rock in the mid-1970s and the subtler jazzy pop of the early 1980s – Genesis could perplex and enrage the die-hards, whilst exciting and exhilarating the newer disciples,” Tony writes in the Facebook post.
Tony adds that “the film recounts an extraordinary musical story, exploring the band’s songwriting as well as emotional highs and lows, alongside previously unseen archive material and rare performance footage across their entire career.”
As of now, a release date for Genesis: Together and Apart documentary has not been confirmed.
