Behind The Official 70s Genesis Tribute

01/30/2012
.
(Rock News Desk) Genesis tribute act The Musical Box are a unique phenomenon amongst such outfits: they're officially licensed by the band who inspired them to use the original props, costumes and backdrop slides to recreate classic 1970s tours.

Formed in Canada in 1993, they play to large audiences, many of whom will not have been old enough to see the original shows. Even Genesis members go and watch them and sometimes even take part.

So what makes talented musicians devote their lives to being someone else? Is it like being in a real band, or is it a day job with the perks of travel? Rock News Desk caught up with singer Denis Gagne aka "Peter Gabriel" on the band's current European tour as he prepared for another stint as Rael. Check it out here.
