Chester Thompson talks about Phil's New Solo Project; Hall of Fame Ceremony
 
On January 10th, at a Calgary, Canada drum clinic, Chester Thompson recently discussed the status of Genesis' possible intentions about performing at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in New York City in March.

Chester explains that due to injury, Phil was forced to tape his drum sticks to his hands in order to play drums on his forthcoming solo album of Motown cover tunes. In Chester's opinion, its doubtful that Phil Collins will want to do a performance at the Hall of Fame in his present physical condition.

Of course, this is not an official statement from the band, but that combined with Peter Gabriel's comments earlier this month
about not performing at the event, don't seem to be good indicators of any kind of Genesis live reunion for their induction. To watch Chester Thompson explain his opinion about the Hall of Fame induction, watch the clip to the right of this text.

More Details On The Commercial Release of Peter Gabriel's Scratch My Back Announced

There will be two pressing of the forthcoming Peter Gabriel album Scratch My Back. The first is a standard 1- CD edition (European Catalog # PGCD12), which includes the basic 12 tracks that make up the album. The next edition is the 2-CD Deluxe Edition (European catalog # PGCDX12) which includes the normal CD plus a bonus disc with 4 bonus remix tracks: "The Book of Love" (Remix), "My Body Is A Cage" (Oxford London Temple Version), "Waterloo Sunset" (Oxford London Temple Version) and "Heroes" (Wildbeest Mix).  The Deluxe Edition also includes a special code to access FLAC files of the album.

You can play back compressed FLAC files in a supported player - just like you would an MP3 file. The new scheduled release date in Europe for both versions is February 15, 2010. In Japan, the release date is scheduled for January 27, 2010 and will be the one CD edition (catalog # TOCP-66925). The North American release date is anticipated shortly.
