If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then fewer bands could be more flattered than Genesis, given the myriad of tribute bands and recreation projects that pay homage to their music. The Tabletop shares its take on this aspect of Genesis culture, and interview members of four diverse tribute acts; Adam Kromelow from the Genesis Piano Project; Heliopolis keyboardist Matt Brown from Los Angeles-based Cinema Show and Gabble Ratchet; Mike Morton and Howard Boder from England’s The Book of Genesis; and Joe Trainor from the Keep It Dark project.

As mentioned in our “And Then There Were Three” podcast, the live version of “Say It’s Alright Joe” was extended to more than twice the length of the album version, mostly due to Phil’s theatrics. And you can hear that “drunk” Phil had quite a lot to deal with from “drunk” audience members!
This song didn’t rate as high with the female members of the Tabletop as it did with the men. What do you think? Does it come across as a testosterone-heavy track?
Laughter, music (and perfume!) linger ’round the tabletop as the members dive deep in the motherlode that is 1978’s “… And Then There Were Three …” The lively discussion touches on Steve Hackett’s departure from the group and the “genesis” of the three-piece unit, while exploring everything from snowmen and all-star Indian tribes to pretty mamas and maidens fair.
Genesis and solo legend Steve Hackett sits down with members of the Tabletop to discuss his latest work, Wolflight, how he chose songs for his most recent career-spanning tour, the history behind a Genesis fan-favorite tune, and more!
