Early years

Banks was born in East Hoathly, Sussex, England. He received classical training in piano, and taught himself to play guitar. He attended Charterhouse School in the mid-1960s, where he met fellow student Peter Gabriel in 1965. Banks originally planned to study mathematics in higher education, and after Charterhouse he took a leave of absence from higher education to explore Genesis, and never returned.[1] East Hoathly is a small village in East Sussex, England. ...

Career

Banks and Gabriel, together with drummer Chris Stewart, formed a band called The Garden Wall. This band merged with another called Anon, which included Mike Rutherford and Anthony Phillips. They recorded a set of demos which ultimately led to the formation of the band that became Genesis.[2] Chris Stewart was the original drummer and a founding member of Genesis. ... Anthony Ant Phillips (born December 23, 1951 in London) is an English musician, best known as a founding member of the band Genesis. ...


Role in Genesis

Banks's elaborate keyboard solos — such as the piano introduction to "Firth of Fifth" and the instrumental section of "The Cinema Show" — helped to establish Genesis' sound. In addition to playing keyboards, Banks contributed (along with Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford) to Genesis' 12-string acoustic passages in songs such as "The Musical Box" and the introduction to "Supper's Ready." Banks also was an occasional back-up vocalist and sang co-lead vocals on "The Shepherd," an unreleased track from 1970 which finally surfaced on the Genesis Archive 1967-75 boxed set. Steve Hackett (born Stephen Richard Hackett on February 12, 1950, in Pimlico, England) is a writer and guitarist. ... Genesis Archive 1967-75 is a 1998 boxed set by veteran progressive rock/pop band Genesis. ...


Notable Banks-penned Genesis songs include "Mad Man Moon," "One for the Vine," and the anthemic ballad "Afterglow," which remained a popular exeunt to the Banks-driven "medleys" (conglomerations of Genesis' most-popular keyboard solos) that the group played during live shows for years.


After the departure of Gabriel and guitarist Steve Hackett from Genesis, Banks was the first of the three remaining members of the group to release a solo album. But unlike bandmates Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins, who saw great solo success, Banks's solo efforts usually sold only to a core audience of Genesis devotees. In 1998, fans formed a tribute band called Strictly Banks, and performed a set of Banks's solo songs.

On 7 November 2006, after so much speculation regarding a reunion, a press conference held by Banks, Collins, and Rutherford announced an upcoming tour in 2007.[3] This announcement comes as the band are about to celebrate 40 years in the music business.


Film scoring

Banks has also created some film scores. The movie The Wicked Lady features a score by Banks, and the film escaped sinking into total obscurity only because it featured (a bare-breasted) Marina Sirtis who later became well-known for her work with the Star Trek television program. He wrote the soundtrack to Quicksilver, starring Kevin Bacon the single from which was produced by Richard James Burgess. After Genesis went into hiatus in 1998, Banks continued to write. A set of (mostly) recently-composed orchestral pieces was recorded and released on the 2004 album Seven: A Suite for Orchestra. A film score is the music in a film, generally written for the film and often used to heighten emotions provoked by the imagery on the screen or by the dialogue. ... The Wicked Lady was a 1945 film starring Margaret Lockwood in the title role as a woman marrying into nobility (Barbara Worth aka Lady Barbara Skelton) who turns to highway robbery for enjoyment, and to repay gambling debts. ...

Richard James Burgess Richard James Burgess [1], has been successful as a studio session drummer, music computer-programmer, major label artist, record producer, published author and manager. ... 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ... 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Sound innovations

Banks pioneered a technique of using the MIDI interface to the Roland drum machine "backwards", using the drum machine to switch the keyboards on and off, to create the pulsating sound in "Mama" (on the 1983 Genesis album) and "By You" on The Fugitive. (Probably on other songs as well, but the effect was used sparingly.)


Banks uses a hand-over-hand playing style in several songs to allow himself to play faster. This is notable on (the song) "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway", "Carpet Crawlers", and later on "No Reply At All". (The last of which has a music video which shows the technique briefly.) This style enables him to transition from one chord to the next very rapidly. He most often arpeggiates the chords he plays in this style. Various arpeggi as seen on a staff In music, an arpeggio (plural, arpeggi) is a spread chord played top-to-bottom or vice versa in sheet music, or rather the sounding of the tones of a chord in rapid succession rather than simultaneously. ...

Equipment used by Tony Banks over the years

The equipment lists in this section are derived from The Genesis Discography [4] up until the 1991-era keyboard rig. This list was compiled in the early 1990s from various sources, including album liner notes, lists of tour gear for the band, etc. (The origin of the rest of the equipment lists is unknown.) Banks would not take his entire rig with him on tour, but did take most of it. Taking a grand piano on tour was not practical, so those parts on the albums were played on the electric piano. (Before it was dropped, for example, the "Firth of Fifth" intro was played on the electric piano.) He did take the Synclavier on the road with him, and it is visible in many of the performance videos from the 1983-1987 era. Changes to the keyboard rig were incremental over the years. Probably the two most drastic changes were the removal of the acoustic sampling Mellotron around 1980, when the then-new polyphonic synthesizers made it possible to play string sounds; and the dramatic overhaul of the rig for the We Can't Dance tour where Banks had only four slim keyboards onstage. (This latter shakeout involved the jettisoning of the Synclavier, and made songs like "Home by the Sea" sound quite different.)

He also proved a natural musician, absorbing classical as well as pop and rock material seemingly effortlessly, in the eyes of his friends -- at 16, he could play anything that was on the charts, and was also conversant with generations of church music and concert works, and what lay behind their sounds.
Banks was also less than comfortable with Charterhouse's academic regimen, and he rebelled by way of music, forming a rock band called the Garden Wall with his classmate and new friend Peter Gabriel, and drummer Chris Stewart.
On their earliest sides, Banks played piano, organ, and some Mellotron, as well as guitar, and also contributed to the backing vocals -- just as those early sides by the fledgling group were a kind of Bee Gees/Moody Blues pastiche, so Banks' playing was somewhere midway between that of Maurice Gibb and Mike Pinder.
Tony Banks - Biography - AOL Music (1197 words)
