Against the Odds: Pokemon Go 

This weekly theme is ‘Against the Odds’.

Pokemon Go was a hype, and these two lads seem to hunt Pokemons in Norwich.
The odds turned against Pokemon it seems. And I am happy for that.

Against the Odds: Phil Collins 1981

This weekly theme is ‘Against the Odds’.

Michelle promised bonus points for a photo of Phil Collins, well here it is.

October 4th 1981, Groenoordhal Leiden. Genesis is on tour promoting their Abacab album.  Genesis’ frontman Phil Collins remembers that night as he got angry when  the Dutch audience booed the new songs: “Just to make it worthwhile for people who like the old shit….”. (the quote starts at 54:15).

In August 2008 he came back to Leiden when his daughter Joeley married. In an interview he said that Genesis was first booed in 1981 in Leiden, so he returned with mixed emotions. But he was joking ‘I hope the father and mother of my son in law did not attend the gig’.

Against all odds’ was already written by Phil Collins on the 4th of October 1981, but still on the shelf.The Groenoordhal no longer exists.  And Phil Collins? He is luckily not dead yet and just published his autobiography by that title. A remarkable career in music. And a brilliant drummer and musician.
