NEW YORK (AP) — When [lastfm]Genesis[/lastfm] gets inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month, founding member [lastfm]Peter Gabriel[/lastfm] won’t be there.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame president Joel Peresman said in a statement Thursday that Gabriel says he has a scheduling conflict with his tour that begins in Europe.

Along with Gabriel, the band’s original lineup included Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett. [lastfm]Phil Collins[/lastfm] joined the band later and replaced Gabriel as lead vocalist in 1976.

[lastfm]Genesis[/lastfm] was inspirational in the progressive rock movement. Gabriel’s vision helped define the genre’s theatrical approach to a rock show with costume changes, innovative stage design, and intricate lighting effects.

The induction ceremony takes place March 15 in New York.
