memories
Tony Banks, writing in the Chapter and Verse autobiography, 2007 said:

We played a lot at Friars Aylesbury which was a great venue for us throughout this period, and we were friendly with Dave Stopps who ran it"

what happened next
Genesis Where do you start? ! Steve Hackett joined the band, replacing Anthony Phillips and in 1975 Peter Gabriel left Genesis to pursue a solo career and has been phenomenally successful. Hackett left to pursue a solo career in 1977 after the Wind and Wuthering album. Genesis remained a core three piece (their 1978 album wonderfully called "...and then there were three"....) and went on to become one of the world's biggest bands and whilst huge played Friars again in 1980 creating the biggest demand in Friars history. Genesis were still filling stadiums until 1992. Collins officially left in 1995, with him enjoying huge solo success alongside his Genesis commitments. Banks and Rutherford soldiered on with Ray Wilson from Stiltskin, but after one album called it a day. The core trio reunited in 2007 and proved they could still fill stadiums. Rumours still persist that a reunion with Hackett and Gabriel is on the cards (having not been able to do it in 2007)
