Here's some incredible musicianship to watch. Steve Hackett's band doing massive justice to Genesis' 1976 outing from Wind and Wuthering "....In That Quiet Earth" and the wonderful "Afterglow". As well as Hackett on guitar we have Roger King (keyboards), Gary O'Toole (drums), Rob Townsend (saxaphone/keyboards), Nad Sylvan on vocals plus (for those who remember Kajagoogoo), Nick Beggs (bass guitar, bass pedals & twelve string guitar). The video pays a nice tribute to former King Crimson and Asia vocalist John Wetton who was the usual guest of Hackett singing "Afterglow" but who'd died the year previous to this performance.
This is one of the first Genesis songs I ever heard. A friend had 'Foxtrot', the album it was originally on, and played it to me repeatedly. I was immediately taken by the muscical complexity while it still retained memorable tunes and moving lyrics. To this day it's still the standard by which I measure other Genesis material. The closing 'Apocalypse In 9/8' and 'As Sure As Eggs Is Eggs (Aching Men's Feet)' sections are astonishing. Aside from the Hackett version above, there's another good one that has Phil Collins singing (after Peter Gabriel left) on 'Second's Out'.
EDIT: For continuity with the site, the bass player on this (to Hackett's left) is the guy who's played for Jeff Lynne's backing band in the last few years.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
