I really don't care for the direction Genesis eventually took or his individual songwriting efforts, but he was an excellent drummer.
Drumming and singing to 'A Trick Of The Tail' is really impressive. It is indeed a shame that he no longer plays the drums.
Incidentally, I don't really care for the post-Peter Gabriel work or his solo work, either. It is very unfortunate that the 'classic' Genesis lineup only put out four albums.
Boy that Don Brewer sure is something, isn't he?
