Phil Collins has said that he'd welcome a reunion concert or recordings with all five original members of Genesis--Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks and Steve Hackett.
However, he realizes there are numerous obstacles that would prevent such a gathering.Collins is realistic about the feelings of all band members, from Gabriel expressing no interest in a reunion to the perspective of the other musicians.
"And I'll give you all the reasons why it wouldn't happen," Collins said. "Tony and Mike probably would think that it would look like that 'we couldn't do it without Phil and Pete. Well, we did try to do it with Ray Wilson and it didn't work.' So, from a pride point of view, they'd say 'No.' This is what I think some of the answers would be so, but from my point of view, as someone who's known for doing anything, you know, doing everything, to me it's just 'Hey, I'll do that; that's not going to ruin my life. This is just going to be a bit of fun,' you know? So, I would say yes. In either lineup, but for a limited run only. And for a good reason."
