    Banks, Tony (27th March 1950-Present)  

    He was born Anthony George Banks in East Hoathly, Sussex, England.  He is a classically trained songwriter, pianist and keyboard player and a self-taught guitarist.  He formed the band The Garden Wall with Peter Gabriel and Chris Stewart when they were at Charterhouse School and merged with the group called Anon that included Mike Rutherford and Anthony Philips and were to ultimately become Genesis.  He co-wrote many of the songs for Genesis including "Mad Man Moon", "One for the Vine" and "Afterglow".  In his solo work he has worked with artists including Fish, Jim Diamond, Toyah Wilcox, Nik Kershaw and Andy Taylor.  He wrote the score for the film Quicksilver but was fired from the 2010 movie by the director.  While Genesis was taking a break he wrote the classical music album called Seven: A Suite for Orchestra.  In 1998 a tribute band was formed for him called Strictly Banks.
