April 2017 – #Atozchallenge – Golly it’s G

G is for Genesis:

Phil Collins and the boys reunited and toured in 2007, calling it the “Turn It On Again” tour.  My husband was sorry that Peter Gabriel was not going to be with them, but I didn’t have a problem with it.  (Side note:  The hubs did get to see Peter Gabriel when he toured with Sting last year, but that’s a post for a different time).

This is another layout that was done a while ago so there are no techniques to share and it was before I was including pictures of us at each concert.  I definitely have developed a routine over time.  There was a good write up in the paper about it so I was able to include that.

Phil Collins was still able to do some drumming and now that he is no longer able to perform on the drums, it makes it even more special that we got to see him play then.

One of the really cool songs was when they sang “Mama” and, with the lights all down low, at the point in the song where Phil Collins sings “Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha” he held a flashlight up to his face and on the screen it looked like he was a demon.  
Phil Collins is touring again even though he has not been in the best of health.  His son is going to be playing the drums.  There are also rumors about another Genesis reunion tour, although nothing is definite yet.  I’d like to see them tour again and really would like to see Phil Collins come around.  He recently wrote a book, “Not Dead Yet,” which I am looking forward to reading.
And there we have G.  Have you seen Genesis?  Prefer Phil over Peter?  Would you see them tour?  Love comments.

  1. DH played drums in his teens years. His drum set is back home in storage. If we’re fortunate to get into a bigger house then we what to get his drums to set up just to have them on display more or less. I don’t know if DH has an interest to play them again or not but it’ll be nice. Why isn’t Phil able to drum anymore? Phil Collins is an excellent singer with a lots of great hits!

      Phil can’t play the drums because of a spinal injury. Drums are one of my favorite instruments to listen to. Something about the beat! Thanks for stopping by, Cathy.

    You know, I haven’t known for a long while that Phil Collins was (is?) a drummer #oops! He’s a great musician, I have just heard on the radio that he is not well 😦 I love how many different bands/artists you have seen!
    PS: I might have mentioned you in my post 😉 https://courageouslivingjourney.wordpress.com/2017/04/09/your-gumption-and-generosity/

      Thank you, Miss Andi, that was very nice of you to mention me. Yes, Phil Collins has had some struggles of late. I am hoping to get to see him at least one more time!
