image for Fish for Genesis?
Was he overlooked in favour of Phil Collins?

Following the long expected retirement of Genesis front man Phil Collins, it has been revealed that his replacement will be a two year old Koi Carp and not the lead singer from Marillion as you might have thought from reading this headline (that'll teach you)

The band's manager said: "We weren't bloody asking Ray Wilson again! Not after last time, I still have to sleep with a light on! No, give me a fish any day of the week"

He then went on to reveal that when Peter Gabriel left the band in the '70's, they tried to audition a wide range of candidates, these included two squirrels, a elderly cat and an Alsatian called Mandy but Phil Collins's wage demands were more reasonable.

In a related story, the surviving members of Pink Floyd are set to reunite for a one-off tour. All except that is for David Gilmour whose vocals will now be performed by an unwell horse, fans should not be able to tell much of a difference on most of the Floyd's more recent stuff a band source told us.

Make the edgy gerbil's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
