Italian Author To Release New Mike Rutherford Biography
 
Mario Giammetti, Italian Genesis biographer and writer for the Italian Genesis website Dusk, has completed a new book on Genesis co-founder Mike Rutherford. Pictured right is the proposed artwork for Mike Rutherford: Silent Runner. The book is Giammetti's next in a series of Genesis biographies that has included Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel and Genesis. While a specific release date has not yet been confirmed, you should be able to get more information on the book's release shortly here and through the Dusk site. As with the other Genesis related books in his series, these are all written in Italian (there is sadly no English translated edition). That being said, if they hold true to the quality of Mario's other books, it will have many rare photographs and include discography information that fans of all tongues will find desirable. Also highly recommended is Mario's Musical Box Genesis biography (details are available at the Dusk site as well).
