Dusk Founder/Author To Open 'the Musical Box' in Italy with Steve Hackett This March

Mario Giammetti, creator of the Genesis fanzine Dusk and author of the new Genesis book,
Musical Box, will have his new book presented at San Pietro a Majella Conservatory in Naples, Italy on March 11, 2011 with Steve Hackett as a special guest!

For those who are unfamiliar with Mario's new book, its an Italian language 514-page history on the band that is unique from any book ever written on the band.
It lists in alphabetical order every Genesis song - and not just the material officially released, but every single song that surfaced during the last 40 years of the band's history. Each song is critically analysed and features an interpretation of the lyrics with extracts (both in English and Italian) of the lyrics themselves. Each song is also traced through the history of the band (who actually wrote it - in spite of the credits on the original records). Also provided is a tour by tour live history for every tune. Lastly, Musical Box also provides a comprehensive directory of every Genesis cover ever done by an artist associated with the band's history. This is quite a remarkable undertaking! Unfortunately, the book is not available outside of Italy in retail outlets, but you can purchase the book from Amazon in Italy (who will ship overseas).
