Thoroughly enjoyed this documentary.

Tony Banks could have been speaking for me when he said " In the sixties the next Beatles' song coming out was the high point of my existence." Very Happy

Documentary about one of the most successful British bands in rock music, reuniting Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Steve Hackett to tell their story.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/search?q=Genesis%3A%20Together%20and%20Apart

Only available to watch until Saturday at 10-50pm

I watched this and found it quite enjoyable, especially the Gabriel Genesis clips.
I thought Tony Banks came across as very arrogant and was very disappointed that so little mention was made of Steve Hackett's contribution to the band . - obviously still some issues there.

There was also no mention of Hackett's solo work or his former band GTR
Nor was there any mention that Hackett is keeping the Genesis sound going with his two Genesis Revisited albums made with various artists.

I too thoroughly enjoyed the programme, especially the Gabriel clips. In the early 70s they were my favourite band (along with Led Zep) and Selling England By The Pound is one of my favourite albums, if only for Steve Hackett's amazing guitar solos.
Did anyone else notice a slight frisson between Banks and Rutherford, as if they weren't really talking to each other?

IMHO, they went downhill when Gabriel left and Collins became the front man. They were just a pop band, albeit producing some very good pop.

I felt there was more tension between Gabriel and Banks,Schiz....they both came over,to me, as a couple of control freaks.The thing with Gabriel and Collins' drums??? Confused Very Happy

Collins seems a happy go lucky sort of a guy with Rutherford coming across as an all round nice guy.

Years ago someone bought me And Then There Were Three and it soon became one of my all time favourite albums.....love it! ...from beginning to end..

I like that album too. Deep In The Motherlode is my favourite track.

I saw this today in the 6 Music schedules,Schiz and thought you might like a listen if you haven't already...it's a repeat.

Led Zeppelin At The Beeb

Another chance to hear Bob Harris telling the story of Led Zeppelin's BBC concerts and sessions.
