Peter Gabriel Talks to Rolling Stone Magazine About New Blood and The Possibility of A Genesis Reunion

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine, Peter Gabriel promotes his forthcoming studio album, New Blood (available in standard 1-CD , deluxe 2-CD, and double LP versions) on October 11th in North America (October 10th in Europe), and his new concert video, New Blood: Live In London (available on DVD, Blu-Ray, the Blu-Ray/3D Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack, and in a 4-disc limited Deluxe Edition package with a bonus live CD in special packaging) available October 24th in North America and Europe.

When asked about the possibility of a Genesis reunion, Gabriel commented, "I did talk to those guys about it on this last round [the initial band meeting circa 2005 in the U.K. that resulted in the Turn It On Again 2007 Genesis World Tour]. And then it was growing into this bigger thing and I had all these other ideas that I wanted to do, and I just thought it was becoming . . . I could feel the suction of the black hole. I get on pretty well with everybody it wasn't personal issues I just didn't want to lose that sort of light-footedness that I enjoy now. And I don't know what the others would want to do. Phil [Collins] has had a lot of physical troubles recently, back problems that have restricted his drum playing, so there may be other reasons that would make it difficult now. So I assume we won't lose any sleep if we don't do more. You know, we had a great run. They did way better after I left anyway. So I don't think anyone has anything to complain about.... I won't say never ever, but it's in the outside department of the betting shop." To read the interview, click here.
