NEW BOOK FROM FORMER GENESIS TOUR MANAGER
Richard Macphail teams up with Gabriel, Collins, Hackett, Banks and Rutherford on his “warts-and-all” memoirs.
The story of Genesis’ early years comes under the spotlight in a new book due out on November 28. Richard Macphail’s My Book Of Genesis explores the band’s Charisma years with unseen photos.
“It’s warts-and-all in the sense that I’ve been honest about what went on… there’s lots of stuff I’ve talked about that hasn’t really shown up anywhere else,” Macphail reveals. “It’s not a Genesis biography, but it’s my story of their early years and my part in it. I’ve interviewed all the members of the band and Peter Gabriel has written a lovely foreword.”
Macphail sang in Anon back in the 60s, and began working with Genesis in ’69. He quit in 1973, but briefly returned for the A Trick Of The Tail tour. He was also Peter Gabriel’s tour manager in the late 70s.
My Book Of Genesis will be available from Amazon, independent book retailers and from the website www.mybookofgenesis.com. NRS
