Mike and the Mechanics

Mike and the Mechanics began as a side project by Genesis member Mike Rutherford while the band was in hiatus and Phil Collins was off conquering the world of pop. Originally an outlet for songs he was writing that didn't feel right for Genesis' sound, Mike and the Mechanics eventually became a large act all on its own, thanks largely from the help of a hit single, "Silent Running."

The band would burst wide open on the global charts in 1986, when they had a #1 hit single, "The Living Years," which tells the story of Rutherford's regret of never making peace with his father before his dad's death. Among the highlights of the band's are "Hanging By A Thread," "Silent Running," "I Don't Wanna Know," "Maxine," "Tempted," and "All I Need Is A Miracle."
