Phish's Trey Anastasio to Induct Genesis into R'n'R HoF

February 26th, 2010

Genesis are being inducted into the Rock’n'Roll Hall of Fame this year, although Peter Gabriel is bailing on the whole affair. It’s too bad but not a big deal.

However, I thought it was interesting to read that Phish’s Trey Anastasio was going to have the honors.

We’ve got big news about Big Red this morning, as the former 70 Volt Parade lead singer will induct Genesis into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in New York City on March 15. Anastasio has long professed his love for The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and other early Genesis LPs and has cited the band as an influence.

I never knew he was such a big fan of The Lamb. However, I did know that Phish drummer Jon Fishman had professed his love of prog in the past.
