The First Genesis Memoir: The Living Years

The First Genesis MemoirThe story of Genesis is the stuff of rock legends: how a humble schoolboy band evolved into a group of superstars. Founding member (with Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel) Mike Rutherford played lead guitar, was the backing vocalist, and penned some of their greatest hits. He also delves into his conflicted relationship with his father, a naval captain. The book is twofold: a chronicle of a band’s rise to stardom and a more personal story of the complex relationship between a father and son, amid the seismic social and cultural shifts of the 20th century.
