Until Phil Collin took over, of course.
You know, I saw a bit of a performance video from them in their heyday, Bruce was all dressed up in some extravagant costume, as if he jumped out of some sort of expressionist play from the 1920's or something. He wasn't so much singing as doing a spoken word performance, in which he assumed the character of..."Europa" was it? It seemed kind of neat actually, more interesting than I could have expected from people saying they were alright, once. But that thing about me, where for some reason I can't seem to find it in me to become interested in a particular subject, until it has entered my life in a specific way, really kinda prevented me from perusing Genesis any further. One day I might, but it's been years since then, and frankly I'm not in the least confident that that day will eventually come.
Furthermore, again, although I haven't delved at all into Bruce Springsteen's solo era catalog, it certainly hasn't presented itself to me in the most appealing way possible, so, really, is there any reason for me to check out early Genesis?
I'll answer my own question for me: Yes, they could be fun, but no, unfortunately very few things in life are so important that they are of any consequence to one's development, so whatever benefit you may gleam from digging into the legacy of Genesis, you could probably equal by delving into something else, something that already has an apparent greater appeal to you.
Alright, I think this is enough for one day's blogging, especially considering I'm just doing this to see if I get the "Genesis" achievement on this little site here. Maybe one day I'll return to this blog, but until then,
