Anthony Edwin "Ant" Phillips (b. 23 December 1951, Chiswick, west London) is an English multi instrumentalist, first known as a founding member of the band Genesis. He played guitar and sang backing vocals until leaving in 1970, following the recording of their second album, Trespass. He left due to suffering from stage fright, after being told by his doctor that the best thing would be to leave the band. He is known for his twelve string guitar work, and his influence can be heard throughout Genesis's early output. more »

Flashing meteors follow
Comets climb in startling numbers,
And the saucers slip by upon the Milky Way.
Marking time, counting sheep on Venus,
Stranded here in ether
I couldn't get my feet into a windbreak today.
Pulling faces and swopping places
Grab the bull by the horns
But still I seem to be torn
From the plough I have
Seen the earth rise
And the bear sailed away...
Correlating clusters
Destination undecided
As the Virgan Voice cries "Proceed to Orion"
Lighting years with Aurora's beacon
Banished here for treason
They didn't give a reason for this sentence in space
Pulling faces and swopping places
Grab the bull by the horns
But still I seem to be torn
From the pole I have
Seen the crab rise
And the fish flew away...
Pulling faces in empty places
And now at last we're forewarned
And though the bull's lost his horns
After years trekking
Through the starglow,
It's the end of the universe.
