I totally agree with Manuel

As a guitar player, Peter Banks. His album "Instinct" shows that he's a very capable versatile guitar player. So is Ant, but as a guitar player I like Banks more, so I voted for Banks.

Genesis obviously created seminal works after Phillips, but I think he's the most gifted composer the band ever had.

The main difference between the two is that YES improved astronomically upon P. Banks' replacement while the quality of GENESIS' music decreased somewhat upon Phillips' departure.  I'm a Phillips fanboy!Clap

I mean both founder guitarists of  two Great Prog bands are somewhat underrated, aren´t it?
