Poor Steve....without the Genesis brand behind he can't even sell books.....orrible title....
The vast majority of Genesis fans do not take part in any tipe of online discussion,they are at the least registered in this forum....which seems to me to boast 474 menbers...so it remains difficult to understand what the remainng 99,9 % of fans really think.....
Seriously dou you think that a bunch of people remained here or on Facebook group have the power on whatever decision?
I have two question:
Do you think your solo albums have influenced other artists?
Do you think you managed to deliver a message through your solo albums?
Lip-synching, in and of itself, has no moral value at all. Where morality comes in is why one is lip-synching. Is it just for a gag at a party or nightclub? no harm done. Is it done in the hopes of portraying yourself as a professional singer/performer to people who don't know that you are lip-synching? That's fraud. Fraud is lying, and lying is usually (if not always) wrong.
In the Australian state of New South Wales, the government is considering new laws that would require pop singers to print disclaimers on tickets "to alert fans if [the singers] intend on miming throughout their shows". Fair Trading Minister Virginia Judge stated that "Let's be clear – live means live." Minister Judge stated that "If you are spending up to $200 [on concert tickets], I think you deserve better than a film clip". She indicated that "The NSW Government would be happy to look at options, such as a disclaimer on a ticket which would warn consumers a performance is completely pre-recorded."
A writer on ethics calls lip-syncing an "affront to all legitimate live performers who risk lyric mistakes and cracking voices to give an authentic performance". The author argues that lip-syncing in live concerts will "...destroy our ability to enjoy great live performances the way we once could, thrilling to the certain knowledge that we are witnessing something extraordinary from a great talent". The author argues that this "...makes lip-syncing in public performances wrong. Not only is the audience being lied to; it is being made cynical".
It is a moral issue.
I ask you instead .... but if Phil Collins during his shows took up a guitar and pretended to play it what would you think ....... what Steve is doing is just that ..... he pretends to sing ....... not honest I repeat ......
