Musician
    (February 12, 1950- )
    Born in Pimlico, United Kingdom
    British guitarist
    Played lead guitar for Genesis (1970-1977)
    Has released many solo albums, including 'Voyage of the Acolyte,' 'Please Don't Touch,' 'Spectral Mornings,' 'Defector,' 'Cured,' 'Watcher Of The Skies: Genesis Revisited,' 'To Watch The Storms' and 'Wild Orchids'
    Formed GTR with fellow guitarist Steve Howe in 1986
    He didn't pull much weight writing songs for Genesis.
    He ended up quitting the group because they wouldn't record the songs he did write.
    He hated Genesis' writing by committee approach to songwriting.
    When he placed an ad in 'Melody Maker' in 1970, he stated that he wanted to play with musicians who 'determined to strive beyond existing stagnant music forms.'
    His brother played flute with almost every band Steve was with.
    Genesis was seemingly rude about turning down his contributions to the band.
    Following his departure, Genesis' sound turned more commercial.
    He was highly influenced by classical music.
    He once said, 'I know that Genesis inspired a lot of young musicians because people still write to me and say that was the reason why they got into playing. I just count myself fortunate that I've been part of the soundtrack to someone's youth.'
