On August 24, Peter, Mike and Tony return from vacation. Rehearsals can begin and therefore Phil's new employment, although the band has yet to honor some dates in the old lineup, such as the legendary Marquee Club.
Since they all live in the parts of Surrey and Collins in the west suburbs of London, Mike invites him to stay at his home in Farnham. Phil tells:
"It's another great house, albeit with a very warm and easy-going atmosphere. I happily take my leave of London and move to Mike (...) I like to live at Mike's parents' house. At breakfast there are hard-boiled eggs and there is always something that cooks on cheap cooking ".
"The rest of my life begins with the first rehearsals of the new Genesis formation in September 1970, in the environment covered with pigeon guano of Maltings, an old agricultural complex in Farnham. We assemble the equipment and start playing with what I would describe a confused enthusiasm: various friends of Peter, Tony and Mike come to visit us from the private school, I discover new exotic foods such as Marmite and tahina, and often everything is wrapped in the sweet smell of the grass ".
In addition to the various friends of the Charterhouse, who come to see them, hit Phil is lwith constant presence of Richard MacPhail.Remember Phil:
"He had been the lead singer of Anon, one of the pre-Genesis bands at the Charterhouse. He's the road manager and sound engineer, as well as a heavy joint smoker. Perhaps he has no other choice, as he sleeps in Maltings, sharing his bunk with the pigeons and their guano, and supervising the instruments. He is the one who introduces me to the pleasure of listening to smoking headphones. "Déjà Vu" by Crosby, Stills & Nash has just come out and Richard brings the record, prepares a gigantic joint and urges me and Mike to immerse ourselves in the majestic sonic harmonies of Carry On. It's not quite like kicking open the doors of perception, but at least I knock on it gently. "
Maltings is a very comfortable old barn here the new Genesis are comfortable playing, improvising. And here they prepare future concerts with the new lineup. The atmosphere is apparently relaxed, though in its own autobiography, The Living Years, Mike Rutherford underlines the differences between them:
"We and Phil didn't live on the same planet. He always had the carefree kid-next-door attitude: let's go to the bar for a drink, tell a joke, smoke a cigarette or a joint. Life is good. And I think that. one of the reasons why Pete liked him was that Phil didn't have our background, he didn't come from a narrow and limited world like us. Pete was less rigid than me and Tony, much more prone to emotions and feelings; much more curious towards the world in general. "
"In any case, the customs learned at school are hard to die, and the social hierarchy is soon evident. No wonder: I am the last."
Even if it is not only to "contrast" with the three, because with them there is another guitaristMick Barnard. We have seen that after the farewell of Anthony Phillips and then with the arrival of Phil, the Genesis have continued as a quartet, without guitarist, with Tony playing all the guitar parts on an electric piano Hohner filtered with a fuzz box. Then they found Mick, but he is not the right person and the search for a guitarist continues.
One time, scrolling the Melody Maker,find the announcement of Steve Hackett.
On August 8, 1970, a phone call extends the life of the Genesis, who, after the farewell of Anthony Phillips, seem already close to the end. Here is the story of those summer days.
The phone rings at 453 on Hanworth Road, Hounslow neighborhood, the western suburb of London. A voice says, "Hello Phil? I'm Peter Gabriel. That of Genesis. The place is yours, if you want it ».
It is August 8, 1970. In the previous days, Phil Collins had an "audition" with Genesis. The band was very close to breaking up and is still in a very unstable equilibrium. The creative symmetry is gone, since Anthony Phillips left his fellow adventurers. Previously, Genesis had two pairs of writers, Mike Rutherford and Ant on one side, Tony Banks and Peter Gabriel on the other. But above all they were friends. Now one of them leaves.
The stage phobia turned out to be much more than just fear, it's terror. Ant is very thin and appears destroyed, but the band does not have the time to notice what is happening in the soul of his friend. It is a time when things seem to move. They just registeredTrespass (will be released in the fall) and I'm on tour in England.
The music that Ant loves so much is becoming the cause of unhappiness. Rutherford is the first to know his intentions. Just before a previous concert, they went away and the revelation arrived like a cold shower. Rutherford knows that his friend is afraid of the stage, but there was no time to deepen the speech and Phillips has no longer mentioned his phobia.
Genesis played in front of 18 people on July 25th at Haywards Heath.The journey home Mike and Peter do it in Gabriel's new car, one Hillman Imp. Together they take the situation into consideration. Anthony seems irreplaceable, the Genesis appear as indivisible, the urge to quit is about to take over.
Yet during that trip something different matures, the idea of being able to do it even without a friend. Must go on.
And so the Genesis take advantage of it to operate a small revolution. With Anthony the umpteenth drummer is also released from the band: John Mayhew.
That's why the three left are grappling with the hearings, that summer of 1970. It is urgent to find a new drummer, but you are also looking for a guitarist, obviously, even if at the moment the parts of Phillips are entrusted to the piano Hohner and fuzzbox by Tony, with Rutherford on guitar and pedal bass. In the post-Ant the Genesis are in fact making several dates in quartet, also important, like this one, at Marquee Club from London:
The atmosphere is therefore very tense. At stake is survival and it may not be easy to find someone up to expectations.
To the announcement on Melody MakerPhil Collins replies among others.
Phil has just been to Abbey Road to record With gas in the song All Things Must Pass by George Harrison, even if in the credits there is not his name and in the recording his percussions are not noticed at all. LISTEN:
And his current group, Flaming Youth, falters. The album Ark 2 did not give the expected sales results. Collins desperately needs to work.
He buys all the music magazines every Thursday, and the announcement "Tony Stratton-Smith is looking for twelve-string guitarist and drummer sensitive to acoustic music" attracts his attention. Phil doesn't know much the Genesis, but often sees them in the commercials of the concerts in the newspapers. A good sign - he thinks - means that they make many.
instead Collins has already known Strat since the days of the gods Freehold, a band in which he played for a short time. THE Freehold they lived in a hotel on Russell Square in Bloomsbury. That hotel is also where Phil first met Tony Stratton-Smith. They become friends, they like each other, according to him. So he thinks he can have a fast track, a good word, to get into Genesis, without going through the auditions. Track Stratton-Smith al Marquee Club. It offers you a drink and talks to him about the announcement.
«No, no, no, my boy, - Strat replies - they are demanding types. You have to call them back. You have to go audition. "
Also to be strong, Phil invites his friend Ronnie Caryl, also looking for an escape from the Flaming Youth and aspiring to the role that was Ant. The appointment is at the home of Peter's parents in Chobham, Surrey, the following week. A middle-aged lady opens the door. It's Ms. Gabriel.
«Come in, come in. - he says - You are a little early. Take a swim while you wait. "
Even the swimming pool! - Phil thinks - Things in his life are just getting better. If only he had thought of bringing his bathing suit. However he decides to take a dip. Over the past two years he has learned to seize any opportunity. Who knows - he wonders - if they'll ever offer him a dip in a private heated pool again. She takes off her jeans and is left with only her briefs, then dives. It is a first class luxury that he is not at all used to.
While splashing around in the pool, Phil hears the rehearsals of his two rival drummers. The standard is acceptable and by listening to them he understands who he has to contend with for the place. But meanwhile, continue enjoying the pool, to calm your nerves. Then it's his turn. Peter arrives, holding the unedited anchor in his hand Trespass.
It makes him feel three pieces: Stagnation, Looking for Someone, The Knife. But when he sits on drums, Collins has already memorized the part that they are using in the auditions and shows a security that affects everyone. And at the end of the test, he is sure he did well.
He is also the last drummer of the day and therefore, between a chat and another, he tries to understand how his audition went. But in vain. All that can receive is a classic "we'll let you know".
He hardly thinks about it when the phone rings 8 on Hanworth Road on August 453th. Phil made it. Later he will discover that Peter has quickly realized that he is the right type for Genesis, Mike is less convinced. Tony confident, but reserved.
He tries to be indifferent, but inside he makes leaps of joy. He finally found a group. Ronnie instead does not pass the "exam". For the new guitarist the research continues.
1. After four albums in which all the cymbals were often banned, Red Rain, which opens So, begins with a surprising reintroduction of unused "metals". A significant break with the past, perhaps to show that the author is a new Peter Gabriel. The first sound of the song, in fact, is that of charleston and the dishes of Stewart Copelandsome Police, one of the many illustrious collaborators of this album.
2. Hard to believe, but Sledgehammer it was included in the album only at the last moment and it was born almost by chance, from an idea that ran in Peter's head, but that had not yet been developed, even if the recordings of the album were almost completed. The rhythm section was born first, created by the new drummer Manu Katché and Tony Levin on bass, then Daniel Lanois' guitar (another novelty, above all as a producer), and finally the wind section of the Memphis Horns. The title derives from the building-type metaphors used by Gabriel and Lanois in the recording room. The single comes fourth in the UK and first in the USA, undermining its own InvisibleTouch of the Genesis. And the video of the song is record-breaking. Read the Horizons Radio article HERE.
3. Report Mario Giammetti (in Peter Gabriel. Not one of us, Ed. Sign), that the characteristic bass sound of Tony Levin in Don't Give Up, derives from the use of his daughter's diapers, to obtain that muffled tone. The female voice had to be initially that of Dolly Parton, American country star, who does not accept. So Gabriel turns to Kate Bush, remaining very satisfied. Although, writes Gabriel in the album's liner notes, the roots remain "gospel / country (...) in Richard Tee's fantastic way of playing the piano. "This hymn to overcoming obstacles has helped many people." Gabriel said that a well-known rock star and a comic actor both confessed that the song convinced them to give up suicide. "(Daryl Easlea, Without borders. Life and music of Peter Gabriel, Ed. Arcana)
4. Unusually the text of That Voice Again it is written together with David Rhodes, who, with Gabriel and Lanois, is the third main author of the album. A solution that the Canadian producer had to resort to, given that Peter did not decide to complete the lyrics of the song. It is possible that Gabriel could not go on for the theme of the song, which refers to his conjugal crisis of the moment with Jill. After 10 years ("not to create connections with Genesis", he told the Italian magazine Hello 2001), the 12-string guitar played by Lanois returns to the music of the singer. As rarely happens, the song begins with the refrain.
5. In Your Eyes sees the participation of various choristers including Jim Kerr of Simple Minds and above all the Senegalese singer Youssou N'Dour, who sings in the language here Wolof. It is probably a declaration of love for Rosanna Arquette, the American actress known on the evening of the concert Six of the best (read and listen to the Horizons Radio special). In crisis with Jill for years, Peter had a strange relationship with her. It is certainly the first direct love song composed by Gabriel in his solo career. And to say that it was initially titled Sagrada Familia and was inspired by the Cathedral of Barcelona and its creator, Antoni Gaudi.
6. Various overdubbed Peter voices contribute to the touching beauty of Mercy Street. Among these, a particularly low one was recorded at seven in the morning, to obtain a natural gloom. The percussion is by the Brazilian Djalma Correa, recorded by Gabriel in Rio de Janeiro. The wonderful bass work is by Larry Klein. Although officially inspired by the almost homonymous work of the American poet Anne Sexton, Mario Giammetti (in Peter Gabriel. Not one of us, Ed. Sign) reports an episode, told by Gabriel himself, which may have influenced the text: a makeshift landing, just of the flight to Brazil, taken to meet Correa.
7. A first version of Big Time, with the title Success had been recorded in the days of Security. Third single of the album, it reached the eighth place in the chart in the United States, where they appreciated the funky atmosphere of the song and its philosophy, so close to the American dream, even if declined with irony. Fundamental in the passage is the bass guitar drumsticks, played by Tony Levin, who presses the strings, and by Jerry Marotta, who strikes them, obtaining that characteristic sound of the rhythmic part, combined with the Stewart Copeland drums.
8. Originally recorded for melt, then candidate to join Security, We Do What We're Told (Milgram's 37) it's different from the other tracks on the record, since it comes from musically remote times for Peter. Played on tour since 1980, in fact, it was an old acquaintance of the fans of the first hour. "He's there to show his new audience that if Gabriel wanted it it could still be disturbing and disturbing." (Daryl Easlea, Without borders. Life and music of Peter Gabriel, Ed. Arcana). The text is famously based on an experiment that scientifically demonstrated the Nazi "banality of evil", a theme also used by Genesis in the passage Just A Job To Do (Album genesis).
9. The vinyl ends with Milgram, but not the cassette and CD versions, closed by This Is The Picture (Excellent Birds) - and, in remastering, from In Your Eyes -, variations dictated by Gabriel's obsession with the sequence of the songs and the good mix of tails and attacks of the same. To insert This Is The Picture it was a singular choice, given that, composed with Laurie Anderson, was already part of the American artist's album two years earlier Mister Heartbreak, in a different version and with the title Excellent Birds. Gabriel wanted it fearing that he did not have enough material, other oddities, since he had already complete and unpublished songs such as Don't Break This Rhythm o curtains, which instead will become the B side of the singles Sledgehammer e Big Time.
10. Finally the cover and the title So. Surprisingly, the album comes with an outwardly normal packaging, with a beautiful portrait of Peter made by Trevor Key and none of the formal oddities present in the previous ones. Furthermore, for the first time Peter decides to use a title. Magazine Rolling Stone asked him why. "The new album has a universal title, - Gabriel replies -, so people won't risk buying the same record twice. I'm very happy I did, because it's in line with the small style change; I wanted the album were elementary, alive, natural ". (Cit. In Daryl Easlea, Without borders. Life and music of Peter Gabriel, Ed. Arcana). The video of Sledgehammer, the subject of another, contributed to the great success of the album Horizons Radio article - READ IT HERE. that's how Stephen R. Johnson and Peter Gabriel realized this and the following.
With Peter Gabriel's farewell to Genesis, Phil Collins became the frontman of the band, which released "A Trick of the Tail" on February 2, 1976 - READ THE ARTICLE OF HORIZONS RADIO.
The LP comes in third place in the rankings of the United Kingdom, such as "Selling England by the Pound ”and becomes their greatest success. Which reassures them. After all, the expectations for the future of the group were very low. But then people heard the record and the quartet's prices went up.
The tour will start on March 26th.
But of course we have to solve the problem of who will play the drums in concert. And Phil doesn't want to abandon his instrument. Collins recounts in his autobiography:
"Bill Bruford, already with Yes, is a good friend who introduced me to a lot of jazz drummers. He comes to one of the tests of the Brand X (we're writingI sell "Unorthodox Behavior") and asks:
"How are you with Genesis? Have you found a singer? ' "Not exactly. I sang on the album, and they want try to make me sing. But to do it we need toto find a drummer. " "Well, why don't you ask me?" «I think you would say no. A little too similar to Yes for you, no? " "Instead I would." And here Genesis have a new drummer. "
So Phil has no more excuses. Everyone adapts and gets used to the new set-up and new training. set-up and new training.
"We don't great ceremonies: it just happens. I don't remember nemless than having rehearsed, or an announcement ", Phil remembers.
Bill Bruford fits in immediately, moreover, it is one of the largest of its kind prog and not only.
"I'm not particularnervous about the idea of singing, nor about the fact to do it in front of an audience - racconta Phil Phil says -. to do it in front of an audience - Phil says -. I was already used to it with Oliver !, in his time. But sing with just a microfono between me and the audience, instead of a row of dishes: this is the problem to overcome. If one does not it is worn for bat hats and for flying to in mid-air, what do you do when you don't sing? "
Remember Mike Rutherford in his autobiography:
"We had deliberately chosen Canada because they had less memory of the concerts with Pete there than in Europe. Pete had been such a strong figure that we couldn't imagine how Phil could replace him. "
There are also other practical problems.
For example: how to dress. The suit from worker was ideal when he was only the drummer. And to wear masks and costumes "Peter Gabriel" is not mentioned.
"I can put on my coppola and kingdingote for Robbery, Assault and Battery, but this is it the most I am willing to do ", says Phil.
Then the worker suit is chosen. And then there is another concern. Peter Gabriel was very good at entertaining the public with his stories while Mike, Tony and Steve agreecompartment. What can Phil tell?
Then the time comes.
At the London Arena the hall lights dim.
"I spend most of the concert hiding behind the microphone stand: I am a XNUMX-year-old being as thin as a drumstick.
And I don't even touch the microphone. Removing it from the support would be a gesture too ... as a singer. But I get to the end of the concert bringing only small dents to my fragile awareness of frontman.", recalls Phil.
"People were on his side from day one - Mike says -. On stage, Phil has always been a very visual drummer - never flashy but very spectacular.
I will never forget Phil in his T-shirt, his long beard and his trembling hand. And then don't have Pete there ... A strange moment for everyone. But after playing the first two songs, I realized that it would be all right.
And so it was. Phil's lecture helped us. It lightened the atmosphere. Pete was mysterious on stage, Phil was always the boy next door ", recalls Mike.
There are 2.200 fans at the London Arena on Bathurst Street for Collins' debut as frontman. Genesis expected no more than a hundred people and instead here is the proof that the band's popularity is not decreasing.
Nthere is no public recording of this concert, although it appears that a copy is owned by a collector. Here are those of two successive dates:

“It was the middle of winter and there was hardly anyone else on
still just the seven of us on the road together, which when you
look at the armies of crew that bands employ nowadays seems
It was a four-hourcrossing and we were bored stiffbecause there
there was nothing to do. I found this box with life vests in it,,
and so we all got our vests on and posed for what has now become
a famous picture of Genesis, all of us with our hair down past
our shoulders, Mike drinking from a small bottle of Mateus Rosé
because that's what we drank in those days, that or Liebfraumilch.
(...) Nowadays when you go abroad you have satellite navigation
that tells you precisely where to go and mobile phones or
with maps on them, but I really had no idea where we were heading
in Belgium. I didn't even have a fold-out map.
(...) The place,
a club called Ferme V, packed to the roof, but the fans knew every
note. It was unbelievable. While in England it was a very slow
build-up, in Belgium it happened very suddenly, like a minor
explosion as far as we were concerned.
Another thing I remember
is that we stayed in a three-star hotel, very comfy, and that Peter
shared a room with me because he couldn't bear to share with Tony
ever again, not after his experiences at the cottage.»

“The Italian tribute to Phil Collins for the first time on our stage. Nine musicians to play and sing all the hits of the former Genesis leader.
The Roman band "Feel Collins" since 2005 offers the repertoire of the former drummer / singer of Genesis in his solo role, embracing the best of his production.
The complexity and beauty of the arrangements of Phil Collins' repertoire undoubtedly go through the unique work of the wind section, faithfully reproduced here. Nine musicians to play and sing all the hits of the former Genesis leader and all in some way related to the figure of Phil Collins: - Carlo Leproni (keyboards): already in other formations of the "Genesis" area, he is absolutely the "director" of the band, with his proverbial sounds, sequences and vocal parts, which distinguish him - Pino Vecchioni (drums): impeccable professional, he never made a mystery of being inspired by Collins' drumming, also present in various Genesis-oriented bands - Carlo Bianchi (bass): the engine of the band, which drags with great confidence - Fabio Servilio (guitar): refined performer of the rhythms and riffs that characterize Collins' sound, he also emerges strongly in the solo parts - Roberto D'Amore (voice): always passionate about the whole Genesis / Gabriel / Collins production, he tries to convey at best what the great masters have given us. There will also be the best known hits of the great artist, such as "In the Air Tonight", "Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)", "One More Night", "Another Day in Paradise" and others. "
