    I certainly wasn’t having a pop at him. One of my favourite albums, and I’ll probably get slated for it on here, is “Duke” It’s just very sad that he’s deteriorated so rapidly in recent years. I wasn’t aware of this until I saw the pictures today.
    No slating from me, he is a legend in the industry and I have every album and most of the singles that he and Genesis ever produced.
    My favourite album would be a toss up between Duke and Trick of the Tail.
    Maybe some people just don't get it, but the musical phrasing, especially in the interludes is fantastic.
    Playing in keys and using chords that are rarely played in sequence, hence the appeal to like minded people I suppose, might be a musician's thing.
    Hasn't got a fantastic voice, but the songs suited him.
    Always looked old I think and if that is what extreme prolonged drumming does for you I am glad to be a Saxman.
    Don't know anything about his private life, though it was probably torrid going by the songs written.
    Going to have to read the biography I think.

      He doesn’t look great for 67 and his wife

      I'm surprised he's got any kids..

      Especially as he's always "coming in the air" that's the most reliable birth control method there is.
      I've killed women and children. I've killed everything that walks or crawls at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill Archer, for what you done to The Seagulls.

      Never realised being a John Selwyn (Gummer) had such an impact on the body.

      Led Zepplin did not rate his performance very highly

      If you get a chance read his book. Basically his health failed once he stopped playing. Someone who did not drink to excess while he was touring and playing became depressed and an alcoholic once retired. Had liver issue and almost died. I know people have a irrational dislike of him, but to me he is a total legend. The music of Genesis and his early albums could not be further away from the songs of his they play on the radio. Saw him in concert a few time solo and Genesis and the best live band I have seen, and I have seen many.

      It seems even the most successful people can have daemons, really sad.

      She is a disgusting excuse for a woman. Doesn't look to me as though any of her has escaped the plastic surgeon's knife. Her face is as scary as anything I've ever seen. Cannot believe that she, and no doubt he, thinks she looks attractive.

      Moved to Switzerland when Blair got in. That's real forward planning given the state of him.
      Good to see there is some positive aspects of the Blair legacy.

      No wonder Adele dumped him on her last album
