#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)
