Profile
After simple beginnings at the Charterhouse school, Genesis went on to become one of the seminal bands of progressive rock, and later giants of pop. The band spawned the careers of Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, and Anthony Phillips. The group came together in 1967, and over the course of their first six studio albums helped to define the new genre that came to be called Progressive Rock. As the 70s gave way to the 80s, the band successfully channeled their sound into more concise tunes and managed to produce a number of singles that charted well. After personnel changes, the band went on hiatus in the mid-90s, to return for a reunion in 2006.
