NEW BOOK FROM FOR­MER GE­N­E­SIS TOUR MAN­AGER

Richard Macphail teams up with Gabriel, Collins, Hack­ett, Banks and Ruther­ford on his “warts-and-all” mem­oirs.

Prog - - Intro -

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
