9 Mike + The Mechanics' song, "The Living Years", which he co-wrote with B.A. Robertson, won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song. 1991 saw Mike + The Mechanics' songs, "Silent Running" (also co-written with Robertson) and "The Living Years", awarded "MillionAir" status by BMI for more than one million broadcast performances in the US. By 1998, BMI acknowledged "Silent Running" at two million plays, and "The Living Years" was recognized with a three million award in 1999.
10 He has co-written and played on two US number one hit singles: "Invisible Touch" by Genesis (released in 1986) and "The Living Years" by Mike + The Mechanics (released in 1989).
11 His favorite Genesis album is "Genesis" (released in 1983).
12 Assumed lead guitar duties on Genesis albums from "And Then There Were Three" (1978) onwards, replacing Steve Hackett.
13 Created the side band, Mike + The Mechanics in the 1980s, while remaining involved with his main band, Genesis. Paul Carrack, formerly of bands, "Ace" and "Squeeze", and Paul M. Young, formerly of "Sad Cafe", were recruited as the vocalists for "The Mechanics".

#Quote
1 After Peter Gabriel left we started to get into individual songs for a while. But Genesis has always worked best when we worked together on stuff that we liked. 'Follow You Follow Me' was a classic example of that and we started writing together again. I think if we hadn't started writing songs like 'Turn It On Again' we would have started to lose our way.
2 Abacab, Genesis and Invisible Touch were for me a real pleasure to do. Each one was an adventure we faced without any preconceived ideas. It was, 'Here we go, hope it works and let's see which way it takes us'. And Phil's voice had developed so much. He'd gone from being a drummer who sang to being a great singer.
3 We are all shocked and devastated by Paul's death. He had a fantastic voice, one of the best rock voices of his generation, and aside from his musical talent, he had such an infectious enthusiasm for the business. Paul loved performing. (On the death of Paul M. Young)
4 Despite the media's perception of us, we didn't think of ourselves as a singles band. In our minds we were a band that did long songs but just happened to have a few hits. (On Genesis)

#Trademark
1 Towering height and slender frame
2 Doubleneck bass/12-string guitar
