Steve Hackett, Burg Herzberg Festival, 19 July 2013

Watcher Of The Skies: Steve Hackett at Burg Herzberg festival 2013

In 2012, Steve Hackett once again relived his past with Genesis. He released the album Genesis Revisited II, on which he re-recorded (or should we say “covered”?) old songs from his time in the band. Every song featured another guest vocalist (among them Phil Collins’ son Simon Collins or Steven Wilson). Since then, Steve has been touring the world with his Genesis classics. And he will continue to do so in 2020 and 2021. Every tour has another album as its focus. While many fans love this tribute, others think that Steve has gone too far and that his solo career suffers from his worshipping of old Genesis material.

Two eras of Genesis? The development of a rock band (2015)

Two eras of Genesis - The development of a rock band by Philipp Röttgers

Genesis is one of the most successful British rock bands, hands down. And a band with a long and diverse career that was able to allow all its members to have also long and diverse solo careers (and in some cases very successful, too). Genesis always seemed to have an invisible touch on their listeners and fans. Starting off as a progressive rock band in the early 1970s with singer Peter Gabriel and his strange costumes and masks, the band changed into a pop band with single hits in the 1980s after he left and drummer Phil Collins took over the microphone. At least that is the common conception. Philipp Röttgers takes a look beyond and asks if this change even exists or if there is some kind of misunderstanding. He turns it on again and analyzes certain songs from both “eras”, takes a look at live performances, music videos, album covers and press and fan reviews. He runs through the band’s history and also includes the solo careers to find out if their image should be renewed.
