About the book:

The long-awaited, definitive story of one of the most creative and commercial rock groups of all time, Genesis


One of the most imaginative, courageous, and unpredictable music acts ever, Genesis evolved from pioneers of progressive music in the 1970s to a global phenomenon, topping charts and selling over 150 million albums worldwide. The story of their band spans thirty years and thirty albums, and through all the changes in the bands line-up and musical direction, the spirit of Genesis has remained constant and undimmed.


Genesis: Chapter & Verse is the ultimate addition to any fans collection, setting the record straight as the bands members tell their story their way. Remarkably, the band survived the high-profile departure of not one lead vocalist, but two (Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins), two influential guitarists (Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett), and its best-known drummer (Phil Collins). Genesis simply got stronger and bigger  matching the huge solo success of Gabriel, Collins, and Mike + The Mechanics.


A collaboration between all the members of Genesis, past and present, Genesis: Chapter and Verse is the bands definitive autobiography: an intimate, no-holds-barred, no-stone-unturned history that allows character and personality to come to the forefront. Covering the bands story as well as the writing and performance of significant songs from each period, this treasure trove of text and photographs provides long-awaited insight into the way this exceptional group of songwriters worked together, allowing the band to dispatch more than a few sacred cows along the way. It is a book like none other, and an exclusive look into the life and times of one of rocks most influential and lasting groups.
