    Ouch!! Did someone hit a nerve by starting this thread? I hope you see now why your Phil bashing is not cool. Now, can we get back to talking about how Mel Collins ruined Genesis?

    Wait a minute. I thought we agreed it was General Tito who ruined Genesis.

    I allways thought there was way too much saxophone on the early Genesis records and never liked their jazzy sound. Now I know who's responsible of this and It's good to know he has been fired. I sincerely hope Mel wil be not take part in the next Genesis reunion tour. I heard he also can play flute quite well, thus he might be a good replacement for Ian Anderson in the next Jethro Tull reincarnation. But no more saxophone in Genesis, PLEASE !!!

    Totally agree with all of this. The blaring saxes virtually ruin the entire middle section of "Can-Utility", and are even more out of place in songs like "Dusk" and "The Lamia".

    The sax in Can-Utility was Ian McDonald. It's a common mistake.

    I stand corrected. Thus Ian Mc Donald ruined Genesis too... and he already ruined Steve Hackett's "Genesis Revisited (I)". Didn't he also ruined King Crimson long ago ?

    No, but he ruined Starrider by Foreigner with his flute playing and Long, Long Way From Home with his sax playing.

    Actually, I quite like Phil.

    Purists sniff that he ruined Genesis, but he has a good voice, and the compositions were OK. Genesis simply evolved. It had to. Just as Rabin didn't really ruin Yes. They just evolved.
