Tony Banks (musician) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1420 words)
Tony Banks (born March 27, 1950) is a classically-trained songwriter, pianist and keyboard player who is best known as one of the founding members of — and many say the driving musical force behind — Genesis, one of England's most famous and successful progressive rock/pop groups.
Banks attended Charterhouse School in the mid-1960s, where he met fellow student Peter Gabriel in 1965.
In its early progressive years, Banks' songwriting heavily influenced Genesis' musical direction, and his elaborate keyboard solos — such as the piano intro to "Firth of Fifth" and the instrumental section of "The Cinema Show" — were one of the hallmarks that established the band's larger-than-life sound.
