Genesis

Born in 1967, when producer Jonathan King fused two bands of students from his old school and dubbed the result "Genesis," this group got off to a relatively slow start. One member was induced to give up the band and return to school by his parents, and change was something of a constant up through the early '70s. At that point the group's lineup, now including founding vocalist/songwriter Peter Gabriel and new drummer Phil Collins, achieved the right chemistry at last, launching Genesis as progressive-rock pioneers. Moderately successful albums led up to the 1974 epic The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, after which Gabriel left to pursue a solo career, and Collins took on the frontman spot, simplifying the Genesis sound and making the group more accessible to mass audiences. The band's greatest success ensued in the late '70s, and they recorded and toured for the next two decades, sticking closely to the formula that made them superstars. Collins called it quits in the mid-'90s, effectively ending Genesis' long history, although other members sporadically used the name on other projects afterwards.
