Well, '70s Britrock fans, you didn't get your Zeppelin with Plant after all, but maybe there'll be a proggy consolation prize somewhere in your future. Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks has said that he and the other two current members of the band (Mike Rutherford and some Bob Hoskins-looking dude) would be happy to stage a reunion of the Peter Gabriel-era lineup (also including guitarist Steve Hackett). One little glitch: Gabriel hasn't agreed to do it. Then again, he apparently hasn't said no either. Banks remains philosophical but pragmatic, saying "I think we should do this before one of us dies." In the meantime, fans of classic Genesis will have to be satisfied with the forthcoming seven-CD, six-DVD box set Genesis: 1970-1975, containing remastered albums from the period plus a bounty of extras and rarities, due out next week.
