Tony Banks Speculates About Possible Genesis Reunion


Tony Banks has opened up about the possibility of a Genesis reunion in the future. During a recent interview, Banks revealed that Phil Collins has been the lone holdout, but is now back in top form and impressing fans with his comeback tour.

"Phil is not really capable of drumming anymore," Banks told Billboard in a new interview, echoing sentiments he'd previously expressed. "He's singing well, but he can't really walk very far and he certainly can't drum, so he's a bit more limited in what he can do. Obviously, you could have someone else drumming and we could do a show, but it would have to be a very, very different kind of approach if we were to do anything again -- and, then, would that really be Genesis? You've got to make certain you can put on a show that is good enough to be a Genesis show."

He adds:

"We changed so much and adapted and so many things happened to us," he recalled. "It makes you feel very old, I have to say. But then you think about from 'Silent Sun' to A Trick of the Tail, that was only eight years. And when you talk about Invisible Touch or something, which is about 30 years ago now and only feels like 10 years ago. Your life sort of gets compressed in certain areas - but in a good way, I think. There's a lot of good work there."
