Some new books about Genesis & solo released or announced

  • Looks like there are quite a few new books about Genesis & solo, besides the most common ones (biographies by Collins, Hackett, Rutherford, Macphail, books by Mario Giammetti)

    We have compiled some info for you, additions welcome

  • I'm very happy that someone has finally mentioned the Steve Aldous book....compared to Giammetti works is much more detailed and also more balanced.....no images but instead a tremendous work of research....

  • That someone was me

    We will have a review about Steve's book plus the Genesis On Track and the old Chris Welch complete guide online in 4-6 weeks.

    I haven't read any of those books, so the review will of course be done by someone who did read all of them.

  • The comment about Steve's "on track" book's existence being "a little surprising" is odd. He has been the most prolific solo member of the band, there's a lot more to explore there than with other members.

    no doubt


    but obviously Genesis, Gabriel (or Collins) have a bigger audience than Steve and therefore most likely more fans who would be interested in buying such a book. That's all.

    Yeah, but these books are a series, in a sort of self-publishing way (They include an invitation to write one about your own fave artists) so it's down to who wants to do it. Barclay James Harvest are part of the series, smaller than even Steve, internationally, but actually a very good issue, written by the husband and wife team who run the fan club.

  • Got the Aldous book and it's really nicely done - and very detailed. OK, bit too expensive perhaps.

    Mario's book is less detailed, but also a great one (as usual)


    If you want to buy one of them, pick Steve Aldous' book.
