Genesis - Genesis Honoured At Progressive Music Awards

British rock group Genesis were honoured with a Lifetime Achievement prize at the inaugural Progressive Music Awards in London on Wednesday night (05Sep12).
Bandmembers Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks were on hand to pick up the trophy during the ceremony at Kew Gardens, with keyboardist Banks telling reporters, "Our own music has varied over the years. We've been fairly broad, we've done some stuff you'd call progressive and some you'd call more mainstream. But we love writing."
Other honourees included Canadian rockers Rush, who won the Album Of The Year trophy for Clockwork Angels, and Rick Wakeman, who went head-to-head with his former Yes bandmate Jon Anderson to win the Prog God award.
Former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett and Yes bass player Chris Squire picked up the Anthem Award for their collaborative album A Life Within A Day, while Pink Floyd were honoured with a design award for their Immersion reissued box sets.
