On November 27, 1952, American guitarist and bassist Daryl Mark Stuermer was born, touring with Genesis since 1978, with Phil Collins since 1981 and featured on solo albums by Phil, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks.
Here are some videos that represent it:

January 1, 1977, historic concert for Genesis, with Live at the Rainbow Theater in London, in Finsbury Park, on the day of reopening after 3 years. Chester Thompson's debut on drums.
Three consecutive dates, effectively the start of a new six-month tour, with the album Wind & Wuthering fresh fresh out.
There is a significant variation in training. Bill Bruford, who had faced the Trick Tour, replaced by Chester Thompson, which, as we know, will remain loyal to Genesis & Co. to this day.
Chester had very little time to learn Genesis songs, as he arrived from the USA in mid-December.
Tickets and the tour program unofficial:
Here is the complete audio recording of the New Year's date. A lineup that will remain unique, inaugurated by Eleventh Earl of Mar and with a medley between Lilywhite Lilith, The Waiting Room and Wot Gorilla, never repeated. Just before starting the three songs, an instrument stops working and, as someone starts fumbling with it, Phil is heard joking about it and says: "Of course for 3000 pounds, that's what could have worked!"
And here's an audio frominterview released on Christmas Eve, in London, a few days before the start of the tour.
La scenographyof the concert and tour is the very famous one on the cover of Seconds Out.
A wall of lights, lasers, projectors, columns of amplifiers, to support a band that no longer has a charismatic leader like Peter Gabriel and focuses on musical and visual quality.
And speaking of Peter Gabriel. It is present at the inaugural evening of the Rainbow. And, like the critics, who welcome the three shows at the beginning of the year with good but cold reviews, he has no words of praise for the first performance of 1977. "At the Raimbow I was a little disappointed - Peter tells Melody Maker, reported in Genesis. The river of constant changedi Mario Giammetti -".
The Genesis are not satisfied either, the amalgam with the new drummer is insufficient and will consolidate in the following weeks, but the Rainbow opportunity is tempting and cannot be missed. They will improve, in fact, during the tour, until the month of June, when at the Palazzo dello Sport in Paris they will record the shows that will become part of the magnificent live album Seconds Out.
But that's another, next story.
Here is the bootleg, recorded the next day:
