In late February, Mike and the Mechanics will kick off their first North American tour since 1989. The group has changed a lot since then and only guitarist Mike Rutherford remains. (He'll be joined by singers Tim Howard and Andrew Roachford, who are replacing Paul Carrack and the late Paul Young.) The group plans to play Mechanics hits like "Silent Running" and "All I Need Is a Miracle" with a handful of Genesis tunes like "I Can't Dance" and "Turn It on Again." We sat down with Rutherford to look back at videos from his long career, an he unleashed five decades' worth of amazing stories.
