Turn It on Again: Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, and Genesis

Front Cover
(Book). One of the most successful rock acts of all time, Genesis enjoyed a longevity exceeded only by the likes of the Rolling Stones and the Kinks, and provided a launching pad for superstars Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins. Turn It On Again is the first book to document the complete history of this popular and influential band, bringing their story up-to-date while placing them in the context of their time. It explores the relationship between the band and the remarkable solo careers it spawned. Drawing on dozens of exclusive interviews with band members past and present, as well as the musicians' friends and associates, author Dave Thompson chronicles Genesis' evolution from progressive-rock visionaries to mainstream rock stars, and the continuing careers of its most famous alumni.

Not sure how accurate this book is as I know for sure the first concert Genesis gave without Gabriel was in the London Arena (which has since been demolished) in London, Ontario. The concert DID NOT take place in a night club as this author indicates. I outta know as my wife and I were there.
