Mario Giammetti's book: Anthony Phillips - The Exile
The first book about Anthony Phillips ever!
This is the new Mario Giammeti's work.

In spite of what some people think, Anthony Phillips was not just the guitarist on the first two Genesis records. He was one of the four founding members. He was one of the songwriters. He was even (unpopular, but hardly disputable idea) the leader of Genesis in the Trespass days, when they grew from a hopeless pop band to progenitors of acoustic progressive rock ...
Steve Hackett at Dusk Day 4!

Orvieto (TR), Italy
Teatro Mancinelli
20th September 2008

Steve Hackett will guest at the fourth edition of Dusk Day; the convention of Genesis fans and Dusk magazine supporters. Steve will NOT perform a concert; he will guest just to greet the fans and to answer questions. However, the legendary guitarist has promised us to play a couple of acoustic songs, with help of brother John Hackett. All the details concerning the event will be published on this web site in the next weeks, including the modalities to book the tickets. It´s important to notice that Steve Hackett comes for free and that all the proceeds will go to the international organisation Amref, whose aim it to educate African people to become doctors, teachers, engineers and so on. Prices for the event are as it follows:

Ticket €. 10,00
Reduced €. 8,00

Reduced tickets are for children under 12 years and Dusk subscribers. Dusk subscribers should write to mariogiammetti@yahoo.it to get a written receipt which has to be shown at the ticket office to obtain the discount. Ticket office at the theatre will be open from 10 to 13 and from 15 to 19. It is not possible to book tickets from here, but they will be simply paid at the ticket office and numbered at the moment.

Anyone willing to have dinner, can also book for a buffet which will be held after the end of the convention in another room of the theatre. More stuff to come (photos exhibition, auctions for the Amref organisation, presentations of books...). Finally, we would suggest anyone willing to sleep in Orvieto to be quick, as a medical convention will also be held there in the same week end. Here you can read the complete list of our guests:

After Genesis Alberto Bocini (double bass), Alessandro Cavicchi (piano) and Andrea Baggio (live electronics) will perform Genesis 1972/74 classics from their acclaimed album The Cryme Of Selling Lambs.

Graziano Romani Former leader of Rocking Chairs, Graziano is considered one of the best Italian rockers. He is also a sincere fan of Genesis and Gabriel, and in Orvieto he will sing acoustic versions of a few Genesis related songs.

Steve Hackett feat. John Hackett Steve Hackett will reply to the questions of the fans and may play a couple of acoustic tunes along with brother John Hackett.



Merry Christmas from Dusk

 Ray Wilson and Richard Macphail at Dusk Day 3!
On September 22nd the third edition of Dusk Day, held in Orvieto, Italy, will feature two very special guests, among lots of other stuff like never seen before video projections, auctions of signed records and so on.
Richard Macphail will appear during the convention, recalling his times with Genesis, of which he was a sort of sixth memeber till 1973 (and he even collaborated with the band and Peter Gabriel after that).
Ray Wilson will perform a solo acoustic concert, playing both his solo stuff and Genesis songs, also entertaining people, as always, with his funny stories between one song and another.

New addresses for Genesis & Phil Collins forum


Genesis & Phil Collins web sites forum out of order

Annie Callingham speaks: "I don't know if you've noticed (I'm sure the fans have) but both the PC and Genesis forums have gone down with the sheer volume of traffic right now. It was dealt with yesterday but has gone down twice more since then, Could you both possibly put something on your websites to let people know that Bill is trying to sort it out ASAP and to please be patient. I'm sure that the Italian forumites will check with you guys and, as a lot of them are in touch with other forumites, they will probably let them know that Bill is trying his best to get it all up and running again."

 Three men reunion confirmed
Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks are currently rehearsing in New York for a tour which will be announced on November 7th. There are still no details about the possible composition of new material and Genesis management asked to not send any requests of information as any details will be printed on the official web site: www.genesis-music.com You may remember that earlier this month Peter Gabriel said in his Moonclub message that he was not having any involvement in the current reunion, although he added it would have been possible in the future.
