Anthony George "Tony" Banks (born 27 March 1950) is a founding member and the keyboardist of the rock band Music/{{Genesis}}. He is actually the only original member left in the band, with MikeRutherford having come aboard after Banks and PeterGabriel's founding of the band The Garden Wall. He appears to be responsible in large part for some of their weirder post-Music/PeterGabriel tunes as well as the more fancy ones.

* IAmTheBand: He never went on record saying this, but other people involved with Genesis were happy to say it on his behalf. Genesis manager Tony Smith always held that everyone in that band was replacable exept for Tony, and PhilCollins has admitted nothing happened in Genesis without Tony's approval. In fact, if PeterGabriel wanted to do something cheeky (like wear a dress and a fox's head, or sing over the solo in Supper's Ready) he had to go behind Tony's back, or Tony would have put a stop to it.

**Also on "Big Man" from ''Bankstatement'' and "Hero for an Hour" from ''Still''. He was also the second lead vocalist on "Shepherd", a rare early (pre-Collins and Hackett) Genesis track that never received an official studio recording (a version from a BBC session has been released on multiple box sets)

* BoringButPractical: Tony prefers modern keyboards over retro ones like the Mellotron simply because they're much easier to manage.
