    Sussudio is a challenging and fun bass line.

    Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums.

    exactly. Phil who? Genesis dwindled into obscurity without Peter Gabriel. post-Gabriel, Trick Of The Tail was good, Wind & Wuthering was ok, and everything after was mediocre at best. Phil Collins is barely thread-worthy - a handful of pop hits to his credit.

    Gabriel, on the other hand, soared after Genesis...an iconic, innovative genius who produced multiple magnificent releases. he's still going strong with live performances that are epic, finely-crafted stage productions and every new release is a much-anticipated event.

    I saw a reunion concert of Genesis in 1991 ( plus or minus ) at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami and they opened with a 15 minute intro to "Abacaab" ( or was it "Lamb Lays Down on Broadway"...it is kind of hazy trying to remember). All I know for sure is that it was epic, and one of the top 10 concerts I have witnessed. Phil did "I Can't Dance" and it was way below the level of the rest of the songs they performed, but don't sell him short. He played drums at a charity concert with Led Zepplin, so he can't be too bad.

    Oh yeah Surfdog. Genesis live is a show that is hard to top.

    Was fortunate enough to see them 3 times ('78, 81, 83). They are awesome musicians who put on a powerful show. Peter is not coming back but I'd love to see Steve Hackett return to the fold. That guy's guitar playing is phenomenal.

    Glad to see a little love for one of my all time favorite bands. Genesis is often derided by people not in the know.

    I would hardly say that "Genesis dwindled into obscurity without Peter Gabriel." On the contrary, Genesis and moreso Phil Collins were huge in the early to mid-80s. He was everywhere. He appeared on Miami Vice several times. He also hopped on the Concorde following his Live Aid performance at Wembley in order to butcher some drumming for the reunited Led Zeppelin in Philly (WTF? He never heard WLL before?). He was as big as a Miley Cyrus or Kardashian at the time.

    That said, I agree with you regarding Gabriel and Genesis' output was clearly superior with him.

    When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench,
    I can always hear them talk.
    Me, I'm just a lawnmower - you can tell me by the way I walk.

    Regarding Duck Dynasty, my wife is a big fan and watches the show constantly. The other night she called me to the TV because they were in Hawaii (Uncle Si adopted the moniker of Magnum P Si) and were gonna take surfing lessons. They had them out on SUPs without a paddle. Predictably, they were pushed in to some small waves, struggled to stand up and then flailed around in the water some. Of course, later they all were complaining of how sore they all were etc. They didn't actually try to jump the shark but they clearly have at this point.

    As far as the controversy about what was said. In the grand scheme of things, it's really quite inconsequential stuff to be concerned about no matter what side of the "outrage" you're coming from. Remember, there's no such thing as bad ink in Hollywood. A&E and the Robertsons are gonna be laughing all the way to the bank...

    I love that movie.
