Pressestimmen

A brisk, wryly humorous trawl through his life in music... [and] a further attempt to explore the relationship between Rutherford and his late father, a high ranking naval officer who clearly loved his family but found it all but impossible to express it. Glasgow Herald As much a family saga as a rock autobiography... The result is a very different kind of rock memoir - moving and refreshing. Mail on Sunday Rutherford tells the story of his mildly subversive schooldays and the 40 years of his high-flying career in a mellow, forgiving style that celebrates love of family, loyalty to friendship, passion for music, and-in his father's tradition -devotion to duty. The Times

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Michael Rutherford is a founding member of Genesis, initially as a bassist and backup vocalist. Rutherford often played rhythm guitar and 12-string guitar for the band in the early years. Following the departure of Steve Hackett from Genesis in 1977, he assumed the role of lead guitarist on the band's studio albums, beginning with And Then There Were Three in 1978. He is one of only two constant members in Genesis (the other is keyboardist Tony Banks). Rutherford wrote the lyrics to many Genesis songs during their career, including some of the band's biggest international hits, such as "Follow You, Follow Me", "Turn It On Again", "Land of Confusion" and "Throwing It All Away". He also formed Mike + The Mechanics in 1985. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis in 2010.

ein hauch von einblick in die verschrobenheit der britischen 60er/70er, in die aufbruchstimmung der 80er, und in die superstar-gigantomanie der 90er.. für mich als eingefleischten genesis-fan, der nach 25 jahren immer noch jedes greifbare detail der bandgeschichte aufsaugt, recht unterhaltsam. aber letzendlich doch relativ oberflächlich geschrieben und für den nicht-fan wohl eher.. naja.. wertlos? schade eigentlich!

Von wegen oberflächlich geschrieben ;-) Rutherford gibt einen super Einblick in das Leben und das soziale Umfeld von Genesis und erspart dem Fan, und an solche ist das Buch adressiert, alle Stories während bisher Unerzähltes ans Tageslicht kommt. Klingt doof, aber für Prog/Genesis Fans eigentlich ein Muss.

A great memoir, but also a missed opportunity 26. Januar 2014
Von Chris James - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A great memoir, but also a missed opportunity

For dyed-in-the-wool Genesis fans this book is a must-read: the first memoir by one of only two of the band’s members who’ve been there since the very beginning. However, for the casual Genesis or Mike + The Mechanics fan, there really isn’t much which hasn’t been dealt with in more depth in other biographies. As a genre, the autobiography tends to succeed depending on how controversial it is. While there is the occasional surprising revelation in The Living Years, there are very few indiscretions.

The most entertaining aspect is of course the first-person immediacy; reading about events in Genesis’s history from someone who was there, whereas until now Genesis fans have had to make do with third-person biographies (the most thorough being 2007’s Chapter and Verse). But Rutherford’s life is not only about the music. His father was a captain in the Royal Navy who saw action during World War Two. Interestingly, Rutherford junior draws parallels between his own career and his father’s, so at the beginning of the book we get excerpts from Rutherford senior’s unpublished memoirs as well.

This is a highly enjoyable literary device which, unfortunately, only lasts for around the first third of the book. Once Rutherford junior has joined Genesis, the emphasis is very much on the band, and the author proceeds chronologically through the Genesis discography until his father passes away in 1986, when Rutherford was in the middle of the Invisible Touch tour. Afterwards, he goes through Mike + The Mechanics very quickly, and 2007’s Turn It On Again tour is also not dealt with in any depth.

I can’t help feeling that this memoir should have been substantially longer. The literary device of using excerpts from his late father’s unpublished memoirs was excellent, and should have been kept up throughout the whole book. In addition, I think Rutherford could have said a great deal more on how he created his music: we do get descriptions, especially of songs like The Living Years and Land of Confusion, but I finished this book wishing he’d spent several thousand more words going into a lot more depth. On the one hand, perhaps he feels there’s not that much more to be said, but on the other I think a lot of people are very interested and would have appreciated a greater creative analysis. Certainly a missed opportunity.

Also, on my Kindle version there were around fifteen significant typographical issues: a few repeated words, a number of words which ran together, and - unforgivably for a traditionally published book - two instances of “less” which should have been “fewer”. However, these mistakes did not spoil my enjoyment of the book, and I point them out only because, as a traditionally published book, potential readers are being asked to pay top money for it.

In summary: absolutely a must-read for serious Genesis fans, it’s like having a private interview with Rutherford; some parts are surprisingly personal and more revealing than information in previous Genesis biographies. It is a joy to read about events in Genesis’s history from Rutherford’s own perspective. For the casual fan, there is still much to enjoy, and this is a wonderful insight into the evolution of the greatest rock band in the world. The only drawback is the book’s brevity - it could have, and really should have, been quite a bit longer than it is.

Fun read for long time Genesis fans 26. Januar 2014
Von Ricardo David - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a life long Genesis fan, own all the albums, and have read I Know What I Like and the Chapter & Verse histories of the band. If you know that material Mr. Rutherford doesn't offer up any surprise revelations about the band's history but its the kind of first hand account that you would never hear in any interview. In particular, I enjoyed the early chapters which highlight how Mike grew up and to this midwestern American it feels like he grew up on another plant... son of a naval officer, boarding school at 8, getting caned by your high school head master... Through it all you get snippets of Mike's father's unpublished memoir and Mike's lifelong journey to shed the stiff upper lip and finally shout out to the world, via this book, how much he loved his Dad.

The fun Genesis bits are typical rock-n-roll fodder you don't hear much about with Genesis; the drugs, groupies, life on the road and a bit more of a window into the real personalities of each band member.

The Living Years- a moving and deep insight into a sons memory of his Father 11. April 2014
Von dorisakaada - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I recently lost my husband and discovered this moving story from Mike Rutherford. It helped me to understand the deep loss that my son felt. I bought this book for him and he has found it so comforting and helpful regarding his own grief at this time.

A beautifully written account of the grief and good memories of a son for his Father

A great read - could've done with much more detail in a lot of cases - We Can't Dance and Calling All Stations get almost zero mention, but a really good book nonetheless. I felt like it could've been twice as long as it was...
Excellent 17. Mai 2014
Von Pablo Hillar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A must for every Genesis fan, and for every rock fan from those times. If you read Nick Mason's Inside Out Pink Floyd, this one is in the same vein, with the plus that Mike continuously adds some inputs about the relationship with his father and family. The result is a first hand story of Genesis, very particular and intimate whith humour and sadness sometimes. For Genesis fans like me, there are some pearls that never were heard before, as for example Tony Banks sung a Genesis song once, and many others. The book talks about Mike and the Mechanics too. HIghly recomeended.
