Are you ready to jump back in the Whale Time Machine? Let's go back a few years on this date, specifically to 1976. That was the time when Peter Gabriel said goodbye to Genesis, and Phil Collins added a lead singer microphone to his drum set.

Peter was ready to move on for various reasons. Phil's vocals debuted on the Genesis album, 'A Trick of the Tail', released later in the year. That album did well on the charts in the U.S. and U.K.

The first concert on the bands 1976 tour occured on this date in Buffalo with Phil on lead vocals.

For this week's Classic Rock Pick, let's look in on Phil Collins and Genesis performing Abacab from their 'Invisible Touch' Tour at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
