Genesis Turned Down In The Air Tonight
PHIL COLLINS' GENESIS bandmates turned down the chance to record his solo smash hit IN THE AIR TONIGHT as a group effort.
The rocker has revealed he offered the song to Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks while they were recording new material for 1980's Duke album - but the pair didn't like the track enough to include it.
Collins says, "I'd demoed (solo album) Face Value and as my house was empty we started writing the next Genesis album there. I did play them (Banks and Rutherford) In The Air tonight, but I was glad they turned it down."
