Genesis - 1967 to 1975: The Peter Gabriel Years by Mario Giammetti

Due to be published on 8 May 2020

Kingmaker Publishing, launched last year by Prog magazine journalist Nick Shilton and Big Big Train founder Greg Spawton, is delighted to announce the publication of its first book. Genesis - 1967 to 1975: The Peter Gabriel Years by Mario Giammetti will be published on 8 May 2020.

Genesis - 1967 to 1975: The Peter Gabriel Years is the definitive biography of the early years of one of the world's greatest progressive rock bands. It contains numerous exclusive interviews with band members and with all of the important personalities who were part of the story of Genesis between 1967 and 1975.

The book also features a number of photographs which have never been published previously, plus interviews carried out with individual members of Genesis during listen throughs of each of the band's first five albums.

Greg Spawton comments: "I have been a huge Genesis fan since my youth and have read every book in existence about the band. However, Mario's book contains a wealth of details about the Peter Gabriel era of Genesis that were previously unknown to me. I felt these insights needed sharing with the Genesis fan base and therefore was very keen for Mario's book to be Kingmaker's debut publication."
