Place of Birth?[edit]

IMDB lists his place of birth as Portsmouth not Guildford. Can anyone confirm?

An Amando Gallo book that I had listed it as Liverpool, which ties in with living near Chester / Hoylake. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.8.49.203 (talk) 14:26, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

12 String[edit]

I don't have the source on hand at the moment, but while it might seem otherwise, duel 12 string parts were not common in early (or late) Genesis music. I don't recall Hackett ever playing one in Genesis either although Banks played on a few songs. For example, In Can Utility and the Coastliners Rutherford tuned his twelve string in such a way that some of the string pairs were not tuned to octaves but were instead tuned to other intervals. This gave the impression that there were two separate parts. The same technique was used for other songs ( in the studio) as well. Songs such as The Cinema Show ( which indeed did also have multiple 12 string parts,) For Absent Friends, and even parts of Suppers Ready i.e. the section leading into Apocalypse in 9/8 --68.167.223.30 (talk) 16:00, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
