Musical Interlude: Follow You, Follow Me (1978)

Genesis had started as a quintet, with Peter Gabriel on vocals. By 1978, however, the band was down to a trio: guitarist Mike Rutherford, keyboard player Tony Banks, and drummer-vocalist Phil Collins. Genesis had morphed from an art-rock combo to soft rock. "And Then There Were Three" presented a portent of things to come with the melodic single, "Follow You, Follow Me", which is still getting airplay today on adult contemporary radio stations.

Apparently, Collins was already losing his hair by this point. It's the only reason to explain wearing a baseball cap in the video......
