Watch: Genesis Winning Lifetime Achievement – Prog Awards 2012
Here’s exclusive footage of Genesis picking up their Lifetime Achievement at last year’s Progressive Music Awards. As pioneers of the progressive sound since their formation in 1967, this remarkable quintet have continued to create fascinating music as well as managed to straddle the divide between the progressive world and massive commercial success later in their career.
So when it came to who should receive the Lifetime Achievement at the inaugural Progressive Music Awards, it was pretty much a no brainer. And who to present Genesis with their award was equally obvious in our eyes. Paul Conroy had worked with the band as an agent during his first job with the Charisma. He also worked with the band during his stint at Virgin Records in the 90s, and gives a suitably honourable speech. And it was nice to hear Tony Banks & Mike Rutherford namecheck every member of Genesis throughout the years too!
