Artiestinformatie


Prog rock band, opgericht in 1967 door Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks en Peter Gabriel.

De band is in eerste instantie populair in hun thuisland Engeland. In 1970 voegt zanger/drummer Phil Collins zich bij de band en beginnen ze grote hits te scoren. Peter Gabriel heeft er in 1975 genoeg van en verlaat de band.

Na vele audities voor een nieuwe zanger besluit Collins om de zang en drums te verzorgen en gaat Genesis door als een 3-mans band nadat ook gitarist Steve Hackett op stapt. In 1978 scoort de band voor het eerst in Nederland met de single Follow You Follow Me. Ook Turn It On Again en Abacab halen de lijst. Collins neemt vanaf 1981 ook solo albums op maar blijft bij Genesis. In 1983 behalen ze de top 10 met de single Mama. Ook Land Of Confusion van het album Invisible Touch wordt een top 10 hit. In 1991 verschijnt het laatste album met Collins, We Can't Dance. Het album levert 5 hits op. No Son Of Mine, Jesus He Knows, Tell Me Why, Hold On My Heart en de grootste is I Can't Dance dat in 1992 op nummer 1 van de Top 40 belandt. In 1996 maakt Collins bekend dat hij uit de band stapt. Rutherford en Banks gaan door met een nieuwe zanger Ray Wilson en brengen het album Calling All Stations uit maar het succes is over. In 2007 komen Collins, Rutherford en Banks nog eenmaal bij elkaar voor een reunie toernee.

Songtekst

The key to my survival
was never in much doubt
the question was how I could keep sane
trying to find the way out
things were never easy for me
peace of mind was hard to find
and I needed a place where I could hide
somewhere I could call mine

I didn't think much about it
'til it started happening all the time
soon I was living with the fear everyday
of what might happen that night
I couldn't stand to hear the crying
of my mother and I remember when I swore
that would be the last they'd see of me
and I never went home again

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say
He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You're no son, no son of mine
You're no son, no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
and you're no son, you're no son of mine

oh his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
and as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You're no son, you're no son of mine
but where should I go, and what should I do
you're no son, no son of mine
but I came here for help, oh I came here for you

Well the years they passed slowly
I thought about him everyday
what would I do, if we passed on the street
would I keep running away

in and out of hiding places
soon I'd have to face the facts
we'd have to sit down and talk it over
and that would mean going back

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say
He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You're no son, you're no son of mine
You're no son, you're no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
and you're no son, you're no son of mine
