About Phil Collins

Tony Banks is the group's songwriter, keyboard player and a surviving founder member. Peter Gabriel was also a founder member but left in 1975 to pursue a successful solo career. Phil Collins joined Genesis in 1970 and 15 years later, whilst taking time out from the group, he became one of the world's bestselling solo male artists, before finally quitting in 1996. Vocalist Mike Rutherford, also a surviving founder, has had a successful parallel career with Mike & the Mechanics. Lead guitarist Steve Hackett joined the band shortly after Phil Collins, staying until 1977. The first active band member to release a solo album, he has released many further successful solo albums.show more
