Profile:
Chris Stewart was a member of the original Genesis line-up that came together in 1967 at Charterhouse School in Surrey, England. Prior to Genesis he had been the drummer in The Garden Wall, a short-lived group formed by Peter Gabriel and Tony Banks. Genesis went in to Advision Studios in August 1967 to record "Where The Sour Turns To Sweet" as their first single, but they were not happy with it wasn't released. The next recorded song was "Silent Sun" and was released as the first Genesis single on 2nd February 1968. A follow up single, "A Winter's Tale", was released on May 10th 1968 but neither single charted.
At the behest of Jonathan King, Chris was offered the chance to leave Genesis after the second single. The next twenty years or so saw Chris drumming for Sir Robert Fossett's circus, shearing sheep in Sweden and working on a farm in Sussex. Finally he went to live in Spain.
