Richard will tell us his unique story of the group’s early years. He was the singer in Anon the Charterhouse School group that included Mike Rutherford and Anthony Phillips which would later merge with “The Garden Wall” to become Genesis. Richard then became their one man road crew shepherding them from gig to gig, providing a cottage where they could live and offering them support when it was most needed. He was in the thick of it as they went on to fulfil their ambitions.
He has an ongoing friendship with them, a friendship that has endured for over 50 years
