(1950- ) UK musician, best known as guitarist of the group Genesis. His first solo album, Smallcreep's Day (1980) is a concept album based on Peter Currell Brown's 1965 sf novel of the same title: the protagonist, a bored factory worker, leaves his post to explore the factory – a site so large it contains other worlds – and returns a changed man. A number of albums followed, either as by "Mike Rutherford" or as by "Mike and the Mechanics", to some commercial although little artistic success. [AR]
