Gabriel to miss Genesis reunion

Gabriel to miss Genesis reunion

When Genesis get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month, founding member Peter Gabriel will not be there.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame president Joel Peresman said in a statement that Gabriel says he has a scheduling conflict with his tour that begins in Europe.

Along with Gabriel, the band's original lineup included Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett.

Phil Collins joined the band later and replaced Gabriel as lead vocalist in 1976.

Genesis was inspirational in the progressive rock movement. Gabriel's vision helped define the genre's theatrical approach to a rock show with costume changes, innovative stage design, and intricate lighting effects.

The induction ceremony takes place on March 15 in New York.
