Default That Genesis song....

Old age has caught up with me now. :)

What is the name of that Genesis song where Phil Collins come in with that excellent drum riff across the toms half-way through the song? And before that ruff there were no drums at all. I can't for the life of me remember the song name.

Thanks!

Are you thinking of "In the Air Tonight"?

It's not a Genesis song though, it's a Phil Collins song... but maybe it's not the one you're looking for...

In the air tonight?
Mama?

I believe both are 2 mins waiting and then a delicious bridge.

Gotta be In the Air Tonight. I was just watching a video of him doing that live at Montreaux this weekend. There is some percussion for the first two minutes but he doesnt' actually get behind the kit until the fill. A very simple fill but one of my all time favorites...quite iconic. I'm assuming that the first couple of minutes is a loop of some kind.

Agreed on "In The Air Tonight" first Phil solo album I believe. Phil being one of my favorites I would like to shamelessly point out some of his other work (or is it Chester) that I find awesome

Chester was on none of the Genesis studio albums, only on live recordings.

It is. It's "In The Air Tonight". Heard this song a 1,000 times but never played it.

Thank you!
