That time I asked Mike Rutherford about the biggest highlights of Genesis’ career
By Steve Newton
Way back in December of 1983 I did an interview with Mike Rutherford, who at the time was the guitarist-bassist in Genesis, joined by singer-drummer Phil Collins and keyboardist Tony Banks. Two months earlier the band had released a self-titled album that was a huge success, spawning the hits “Mama”, “That’s All”, “Home By the Sea”, “Illegal Alien”, and “Taking It All Too Hard”.
Near the beginning of the conversation I asked Rutherford about the highlights of his career with Genesis so far, and was kinda surprised to hear that the band wasn’t crazy about the Selling England By the Pound album of 1973, which I’d loved.
