Genesis — a revelation
And the end of an era
I didn’t really know who Genesis were before turning up at university. That didn’t stop me seeing them play twice in 1980 on their Duke tour. Once in Edinburgh and then a week later at the City Hall in Newcastle. My musical education started soon after arriving in the toon, having previously been limited to Top of the Pops, The Beatles and Thin Lizzy, a pop/rock group.
