1. How did you get into Genesis? What was the first album/song that caught your attention?
My high school friends and I decided to go see them in 1978, even though we'd never heard their music - we just wanted to go to a concert, really. I bought Seconds Out, and was converted to a fan by the opening Dm7 chord of Squonk.
2. Three decades on, what are your favorite albums/tracks?
Seconds Out remains my favorite album, and I love every track on it. Other favorites off the top of my head: Eleventh Earl of Mar & Blood on the Rooftops, Dancing with The Moonlit Knight, Ripples, Entangled, Please Don't Ask, Down and Out, Dodo, Home by the Sea ... yeesh, I should stop now ...
3. Did you ever see the band live? What tours/shows/etc.? Favorites?
I saw them on the And Then There Were Three, Abacab, Three Sides Live and Mama tours.
4. And since we're all lovers of the visual medium as well, what are your favorite Genesis album covers, gatefolds, etc.?
The A Trick of the Tail and Seconds Out gatefolds still blow me away ... I pretty much like all the covers except for Genesis and Invisible Touch (yuck).
