Abstract:

"One of the most successful rock acts of all time, Genesis is a band whose longevity and creative ferment have placed it in the top ranks of rock royalty. Genesis has not only rocked its fans for over three decades, it spawned the explosive solo careers of superstars Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins. For the first time ever, you can read the complete history of this remarkable group in 'Turn it on again: Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins & Genesis'. Drawing on dozens of exclusive interviews with band members past and present as well as the musicians' friends and associates, this well-crafted history chronicles the evolution of Genesis from progressive-rock visionaries to mainstream rock stars, and the continuing careers of its most famous alumni." -- rear cover.
