Collins Says If The 5-Man Genesis Reunion Doesn't Happen, A 3-Man Reunion Might

In a recent interview with Chicago.BroadwayWorld.com,  Phil Collins stated that even if Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett don't want to participate in a Genesis reunion that a reunion may still happen. "... we all got together to talk about this last November; all five of us with Peter [Gabriel] and Steve [Hackett]," explained Collins. He added, "This is something we may do in a couple of years. It is very, very loose. There is certainly nothing planned. If that didn’t come together because of various people’s schedules, then maybe the three of us, me, Tony [Banks] and Mike [ Rutherford ] might do something. I would do it with the drop of a hat. I have been working non stop for a long, long time now. Right now, I need a break, but if you ask me in six months time…We actually got a little bit of time booked for the three of us just playing around, jamming together in October. There’s nothing fixed though!"
