Tony Banks of Genesis A Chord Too Far'

Written by Mike Dow

As far as their public was concerned, Tony Banks was the congenial, soft-spoken, 'quiet' member of Genesis, content to let Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford (and, previously, Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett) absorb most of the spotlight glare.

Within the band, it was a starkly different situation. From their early, blazingly theatrical progressive-rock epics to their latter days as MTV darlings, Banks was, more often than not, the primary creative instrumental engine of Genesis.

Paddy Murphy's is under attack

Written by DJ Samuelian

BANGOR - On Wednesday nights at 8, an invasion is launched on the second floor of Paddy Murphy's. Attack on Paddy's is a weekly event hosted by The Maine Fighting Gamer's Alliance. The event features brackets for both 'Street Fighter IV' and 'Super Smash Brothers.' Entering the brackets is $5; there is no cover charge for those who just want to watch.

Wednesday the 24th marked only the second of the weekly events, so the creators of the event are still open to feedback and change. You wouldn't have guessed it was only the second week of the event, though. The upstairs of Paddy's was packed almost from wall to wall with gamers of all types. Some were there to win and some were there to watch. People were yelling and cheering, the beer flowed and the competitors showed the difference between casual and competitive play.
