Genesis. When Phil Collins left in 1996 on amicable terms, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford decided to go on with another singer named Ray Wilson. They did one album which was Calling All Stations but while it did well in Europe, the album BOMBED BIG TIME here in the US peaking at #54 and sold a miserable 90,000 copies which was a MAJOR comedown from the 4 million that they sold on their last studio effort with Phil Collins which was 1991's We Can't Dance.
