Swan song

My brother and I went to see Genesis last night at the Bell Center (I took a brief video below).

The last time I had seen them I was 18 years old and they were about 30. Today at 70, Collins looks frail due to health issues and this tour will no doubt be the band's swan song. I am glad I went even if the material from the 80's did not thrill me (Gabriel era fan here). Their last great album for me was 1977's Wind and Wuthering although I was okay until 1980's Duke.

This band had a massive influence on my own music and it was fitting to see them off into the sunset.
