A Genesis reunion could be on the way, as Phil Collins "is in good shape"

It's been over 10 years since Genesis last performed live together, but Mike Rutherford has given fans hope that a new reunion might be on the way. 

Mike's band Mike and the Mechanics returned last month with a new album and tour announcement, and said that he, Phil Collins and Tony Banks are "all fit and healthy and we get on well, so who knows?"

"I’ve always said, for years, never say never and we did the tour 10 years ago, and Phil is in good shape. We’re all fit and healthy and we get on well, so who knows?" Rutherford said on 'Good Morning Britain'. 

The trio first formed in the late 1960s with frontman Peter Gabriel, but it was only in the 1980s when they saw huge success with Collins as their singer. 

They announced a reunion tour back in 2006, which sold out in just 90 minutes. But Phil Collins announced his retirement in 2011 due to illness, so a further reunion was not expected. 

Phil has since returned to live performing, though he now recruits his young son to perform drums for him. So fingers crossed we get to see yet another legend Genesis reunion.
