Tony Banks: A Chord Too Far

Album Review

A four-disc overview of one safe pair of hands.

Tony Banks tells the story of how, when Genesis were assembling their 1972 magnum opus Supper’s Ready, Peter Gabriel ruined the climax of what was to his ears a perfectly good organ solo by singing over the closing section of Apocalypse in 9/8. Intentionally self-deprecating, the tale illustrates that the trick to being in a successful band is learning when to compromise.
