Born in Bury, Lancashire, United Kingdom, in 1960, Steve Aldous has been interested in cinema, music and police fiction all his life.
In recent years he has devoted himself to writing. His first published book, "The World of Shaft: A Complete Guide to the Novels, Comic Strip, Films and Television Series", is a story and analysis of Ernest Tidyman's black private investigator, John Shaft and was well welcomed by fans of the genre.
His latest book is "The Songs of Genesis: A Complete Guide to the Studio Recordings".
Here is an excerpt from the preface:
Genesis' songs have been a huge part of my life, and this book was meant to tell the story behind each of them.
The book chronologically catalogs all the songs of the band from their earliest demo in 1967 until the last studio recording in 1997, a period of thirty years, which has seen Genesis progress from the origins of a schoolboy band to one of the largest rock bands in the world.
In addition to offering opinions on each of the band's songs, I provide information on recordings based on extensive research of archival material.
Along the way I contrast mine opinions with those of the band members and of the music press, which in the post-punk days, they often wrinkle their noses at the mere mention of Genesis.
