Yeah, Breaking Bad is MASSIVE but the scary obsessive nature might of the Fannibals is not to be underestimated! Walt may be the one who knocks, but here in this fandom, we take a more aggressive approach:
… very day, exactly 17 years ago, I was in Munich’s Olympiahalle. I was young, had full hair, I wore a pair of jeans and a denim vest and (I think) a light gray turtleneck. I was excited and still am when I think back. I was about to see one of my heros.
Yes, I do listen to a lots of different kinds of music, but Anthony George Banks’ work has shaped me to the person I am now to a very large extent. I will spare you details ;)
It was the ‘98 Genesis “Calling All Stations” tour. The ticket was a gift by my parents. I remember my mum standing in front of me, asking me if I’d rather go to see Phil Collins (he was on tour with “Dance Into Europe” at about the same time) or Genesis with Ray Wilson. She was very surprised that for me this was no question. I wanted to see Genesis. Apart from the fact that I am (presumably) one of the few die-hard fans who not only like, but even love the Ray Wilson “era”, Genesis meant and still means everthing to me.
Okay… So I stood there in the audience, about 10-15 meters from the stage. Around me? Old people ^^ I’m sure I must have been one of the youngest.
I remember this giant man standing right in front of me, at one point turning around signaling me to get in front of him to be able to see better. I remember the lights dimming down. I remember the “elephant roar”, when “No Son Of Mine” started the show. I remember Nir Zidkyahu leaving the stage during an instrumental section without drums and rushing on stage again (throwing away a cigarette). I remember this middle aged couple, she quite apparently not a Genesis fan, always pushing her husband(?) with the elbow, when he danced a bit too ecstatic (yes, he danced. On a Genesis concert. Imagine that). I remember these two young women who probably were one day too late (the day before the Spice Girls were in Munich). I remember Ray Wilson singing his soul out. I remember him getting off-stage into the audience (I patted him on the back, when he passed) to get a girl to “not dance” on the “I can’t dance” encore with him. I remember Anthony Drennan on bass obviously having a lot of fun. I remember “Mr. Fabulous” Mike Rutherford not wearing a scarf. I remember “Mr. Cool” Banks drinking beer from a plastic cup. I remember his very displeased look after a “slight” unplanned sound distortion during “Alien Afternoon”. I remember a cake and the audience singing “Happy Birthday”.
Yes, it was Tony Banks’ birthday. And it was wonderful!
Thank you for the memories, thank you for the music, thank you for making my teenage years. Happy 65th birthday, Mr. Anthony George Banks!
And here is the “full” show from Katowice, Poland (the opener “No son of mine” is missing)
