Mike is the Genesis of the Mechanics

Today, side projects are all the rage, with artists like Damon Albarn and Jack White achieving success in a number of different bands.

But when Genesis co-founder Mike Rutherford decided to start another band in 1984, it was still something of a novelty. Mike + The Mechanics went on to sell more than 10 million records worldwide, with hits including The Living Years and Over My Shoulder. Now, following the success of 2007’s Genesis reunion tour, Mike has reformed his Mechanics.


The Road: Track by Track


In late 2009 guitarist/bassist Mike Rutherford of Genesis announced he was working on a new album with his long-standing side project band, Mike + the Mechanics.  The band had scored a string of hit singles and albums from 1985 to the late 1990s with songs like "All I Need is a Miracle," "Silent Running," and "Over My Shoulder."
