TechCast #2: Interview with Genesis Guitarist Daryl Stuermer

August 1st, 2008

Gene interviews Genesis “permanent part time member” Daryl Stuermer who has played lead guitar for the band on live performances for over 30 years. Daryl discusses how it was getting back together with the boys after a nearly 15 year sabbatical. Gene grills Genesis on their not-so-enthusiastic performance at VH-1 Rock Honors and the selection of boy band Keane doing a tribute song, but later hails their 2007 tour performance. Daryl discusses Phil Collins’ unique signature sound both in vocals and behind the drum kit while Gene wishes he could play drums like Phil. The 2007 Europe/USA tour was a smashing success, so much so that fans were demanding more shows at the end while Daryl was also ready to keep going. Will they tour again soon? What about a new CD? Listen to the podcast to find out…

    Daryl seems like a very likable person with tons of great stories and knowledge. It’s always great to hear from musicians who are so down to earth…

    I’ve always loved the Disturbed version of “Land of Confusion”. It’s awesome that they gave it kudos and used it to shape how they updated and did the tune live. For anyone interested it’s here:

    Yes Daryl is very down to earth and a fun person to chat with. I interviewed him on Audioholics last year right before he went back on tour with Genesis.
