British rockers Genesis could reunite now that Phil Collins has come out of retirement.
Guitar player Mike Rutherford admits that the doors are open for the hit makers to return for some one off shows, celebrating 50 years in the business.
Mike says that he is hopeful as he, Phil and keyboard player Tony Banks have remained close friends.
The band - famous for hits like I Can’t Dance - last performed together on their reunion tour 10 years ago.
Mike said: "With Phil retired, we never wanted to go on. But we’ll see.
"I do appreciate the fact that we’re all very good friends, which is nice, especially the three of us. Who knows?"
Mike says a comeback has been spurred by the two stars writing their autobiographies realizing how much fun they had together.
"I did a book about me and my father called The Living Years about four years ago, and Phil did a book last year," he says.
"I think both of us have gone through this [period of] slightly looking back in our lives in writing the book.
"I came away, as he did too, with a feeling of what an incredible time we’ve had. How lucky we’ve been. And more importantly, what a great friendship we’ve had.
"Obviously, all of us, but especially the three of us: myself, him and Tony [Banks]. It was quite a special relationship."
Genesis formed in 1967 at Charterhouse School, and enjoyed three decades of success and over 100m sales.
