Firth of Fifth - Steve Hackett Live at Hammersmith 2013 video
Another question I have on my mind: What do you think about Daryl Stuermer? I've read many compliments about him but also many complaints, the latter especially on how he played the guitar solo on the "Firth of Fifth/I Know What I like"-Medley. (But for some reason, I haven't read any complaints on the fact that Steve Hackett played the guitar solo on "The Knife" differently than Ant Phillips)

~Who Could Ask For More~...BBC MUSIC LAUNCH SYNOPSIS GENESIS: TOGETHER AND APART Feature length documentary on one of the most successful bands in rock history. From its first beginnings as a band of songwriters in the late 1960s to its final incarnation as a rock giant in the 1990s – via full-blown theatrical progressive rock in the mid-1970s and the subtler jazzy pop of the early 1980s – Genesis could perplex and enrage the die-hards, whilst exciting and exhilarating the newer disciples. Made with the full co-operation of Genesis, the film reunites all original members of the band together – Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford – for the first time since 1975. The film recounts an extraordinary musical story, exploring the band’s songwriting as well as emotional highs and lows, alongside previously unseen archive material and rare performance footage across their entire career.

This inspired the fantastic 1940 Hitchcock film, and Steve Hackett track :P very excited to read this!! "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again... I came upon it suddenly; the approach masked by the unnatural growth of a vast shrub that spread in all directions... There was Manderley, our Manderley, secretive and silent as it had always been, the gray stone shining in the moonlight of my dream, the mullioned windows reflecting the green lawns and terrace. Time could not wreck the perfect symmetry of those walls, nor the site itself, a jewel in the hollow of a hand."

Making my plans for Steve Hackett's guest guitar spot on my album, a session that's going on this coming month! Just got an email from another musician from a well known band that has been around the world touring so many times and recorded so many albums. To hear him praising me and my work was deep and empowering. One shouldn't need outside validation but that doesn't mean it isn't moving when you hear it, especially from another artist that you admire. Pumped! Let's do this!
***MARILLION MAN ANNOUNCES SOLO TOUR*** Steve Rothery says he’s looking forward to the year ahead after issuing the complete list of his solo tour dates and putting his live album on general sale.

Rothery says: “I’ve finalised the dates to promote The Ghosts Of Pripyat, and Italian band Ranestrane will support at most of the shows in October and November. “After a lot of demand I’ve made the Plovdic concert that started the whole project available on a combined CD/DVD.” He says of progress on his crowd funded solo project: “I’ll be doing guitar overdubs in my free time, and I’m in Real World Studios for a couple of days in June to shoot the live DVD for the bonus disc. Steve Hackett is going to be recording his contribution to a couple of tracks at his studio in June.” Marillion confirmed the launch of live pack A Sunday Night Above The Rain, wh ...

A project of Mark Trueack. ✒ Special Guests: Jon Anderson (ex Yes), Steve Hackett, Guillermo Cides, Steve Unruh, Laurie Larson, Claire Vezina, Brittany and Holly Trueack.✒ ❋❋ Dreams can become true some day. ❋❋ by Guillermo Cides When I was a young player I used to dream to play with all of those great guys that my mono-radio showed me everyday. However some years after, the real music life proved that it rarely happens and you have to focus in your own music instead, and this is what I did. The radio play this days other faces, other names. And unexpectedly, my own music bring me to those guys of that time. Although I'm not dreaming to play with them anymore - I'm now a grown man who doesn't believe in fanaticism but believe in real life things - I can recognize a kind of "old pride" for to be involved in this projects with big names, but more specially because UPF Project have a direct relation with peace, water in poor countries and to work for a better world.

I know many people out there love the band Genesis and the arguments are endless as to whether Gabriel or Collins era is better (don't even start on Steve Hackett). But most if you probably do not know that in the 60s there was an American band named Genesis that actually delayed the better known band from being introduced in the US briefly. They had one very good album called appropriately In The Beginning. Yes, I had this album as a kid, though I must admit when I bought it I thought it was the other band. It turned out to be a gem if you like stuff like Jefferson Airplane or even the Mama's and the Papa's. Very Psychadelic with some pop sensibility. If you want a great lost album go to Amazon MP3 . It is available for download load as of last September. Very cool for all of us wanna be hippies.

Life is good. I have a band together with Roine Stolt called Agents Of Mercy. A couple of days ago Roine and his other band Transatlantic played a live set on a cruise with Jon Anderson of Yes. They did "The Revelaing Science Of God", "Long Distance Runaround", "Starship Trooper" and "And You and I". In a month from now I leave for the US (a third time in a year) with Steve Hackett to continue where we left off in Cambridge last year playing classic Genesis songs. We have a long tour ahead of us. Think about it; two guys from Sweden playing/singing with two of our life time heroes. How big are the odds would you say? Are we very lucky, or was it meant to be? :) I hope the latter. X Nad. Tour schedule for 2014:
Genesis are a British rock band that formed in 1967. The band consist of their three longest-tenured members: founding members Tony Banks (keyboards) and Mike Rutherford (bass, guitar); and Phil Collins (vocals, drums), who joined in 1970. Former members Peter Gabriel (vocals, flute), Steve Hackett (guitar) and Anthony Phillips (guitar) also played major roles in the band in its early years. Genesis are among the highest-selling recording artists of all time, with approximately 150 million albums sold worldwide.[1][2] In the late 1960s, with the release of their first album, Genesis's music was initially regarded by the band and the fans as a pop experiment, referring to then-popular melodic pop.[3] Then, over the course of a year, (beginning with their second album in mid-1970) they quickly evolved into a progressive rock band with the incorporation of complex song structures and elaborate instrumentation. Their concerts became theatrical experiences with innovative stage design, pyrotechnics, extravagan ...

For the eve of St Valentines Day, I've not gone out of my way to be obviously romantic - and if it happens it is more luck than otherwise. Got the new Lucas/Hammill album at last - after the critics and the record company writing that this album is different for both artists, I have beg to differ. This is what I expected from the musicians wrt their separate inputs, but there is a distinct synergism when the two are playing together, thus making this a superior piece of music for 2014. Dipping further in Brad Mehldau/Mark Guiliano's and GoGo Penguin's recent offerings, plus the new Metheny. Maynard James Keenan comes up twice with Tool side projects. Something from Steve Hackett's treble set (but could have fitted onto a double) 'Live at Hammersmith' - how much more can be teased out under the title 'Genesis Revisited'? And least we forget The Mars Volta - have they really been around for a decade? In passing, tonight the two new Hellberg albums were waiting for me in today's post. Trio-played, 'Jazz Raj ...

In 1818, Chile officially proclaimed its independence, more than seven years after initially renouncing Spanish rule. In 1909, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was founded. In 1912, Pu Yi (poo yee), the last emperor of China, abdicated, marking the end of the Qing Dynasty. In 1914, groundbreaking took place for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. (A year later on this date, the Memorial's cornerstone was laid.) In 1924, George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" pr ...

I've just murdered Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Steve Hackett & Anthony Phillips. It was an act of Genesicide.
What Bands did Rush open you to New Music? They were like a spring board for me. and I had 2 brothers that exposed me to new stuff..Feel Blessed by that. Rush has always been the bed rock..but through them I found..Max Webster, Genesis (what you would classify as old stuff..with Steve Hackett mostly), Yes, King Chrisom, a host of guitar players..Thank you Alex Lifeson.. your style made me want more. Allan Holdsworth, Frank Gamble, Steve Morse, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai...all from the bed rock:)
Steve Hackett: ‘Genesis Revisited III? Never Say Never’ Comments 0 Martin Kielty at 10:33am January 3 2014 Steve Hackett Steve Hackett won’t rule out a follow-up to his acclaimed Genesis Revisited II release. But he believes it’s time to concentrate on making his own new music – and he’s not certain how much more of his former band’s material can be reworked to his satisfaction. Genesis Revisited II and its 1996 predecessor saw him rebuilding some of the his earliest material, and he admits it’s generated a lot of attention for him. Hackett tells Something Else: “Is there a third? I say, ‘Never say never.’ But I’m involved in doing another album of my own, rather than immediately going back to Genesis material. “There are some lovely songs which deserve to be given the widescreen treatment – but it gets tougher because the songs I was really drawn to are already covered.” He describes the Revisited process as “restoration,” explaining: “It’s taking songs that were som ...
Bob Campbell you'll enjoy this ...So I visited London Drugs and they had a "Listen before you buy stand with 10 or so music CD's on it with a set of headphones to preview the retro! But it was when I checked out the discs that I thought I'd stepped into the Way back machine with Sherman and Mr Peabody! There were new albums from Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues, Saga, yup Saga, pride of Oakville Ont, The Fixx, and not one but TWO albums from Steve Hackett. One of them with Yes's bassist Chris Squires and the other a remixing of a ton (two Cds) of old Genisis music (circa Peter Gabriel). What a treat,so hats off to London Drugs for their choices and promotion. It was great to have that old record store thrill of seeing and hearing favourite music. Nowadays without our local record store, we just aren't aware of new stuff coming out from our favourites from Way back.and I really miss that. Oh, I did grab up the Steve Hackett Genesis double album and a new group (to me) that was also on that r ...
Nice review from James Turner...thanks James (thanks Vicky) :-) Lifesigns by Lifesigns Keyboard player John Young, bassist Nick Beggs and Martin ‘Frosty’ Beedle have combined their not inconsiderable talents, and present 5 amazing tracks as the Lifesigns project. With guests of the calibre of Steve Hackett, Thijs Van Leer, Robin Boult and Jakko Jakszyk Lifesigns fits nicely in the English progressive tradition, with inventive performances, quality musicianship, (the interplay between Beggs fluid bass playing and Youngs superb keyboard playing is a particular delight, while Beedle builds on and adds to a tradition of inventive percussion started by Bill Bruford and others) and instead of imitating or following a pre-ordained idea of what progressive rock should be, this is showing what it is. Intelligent mature well crafted songs, atmospheric and ambient soundscapes created by the band, where Youngs emotive vocals weave over, and the beauty of the album from the superb Lighthouse to the closing 11 minu ...

Polifonia ROCK...only the best Progressive Rock...The band Nektar formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1969, members included Englishmen Roye Albrighton on guitars and vocals, Allan "Taff" Freeman on keyboards, Derek "Mo" Moore on bass, Ron Howden on drums, and *** Brockett on lights, special effects and other miscellanea. Songwriting was always considered a group effort. The band's early albums such as Journey to the Centre of the Eye, ...Sounds Like This and A Tab in the Ocean were obscure psychedelic rock albums that won the band a small but growing cult following, based largely on word of mouth. The last of those albums was the first Nektar album to be released in the U.S., on the small Passport Records label. Success[edit] It was Nektar's second U.S. release, Remember the Future (1973), that propelled the band briefly into mass popularity. A concept album about a blind boy who communicates with an extraterrestrial being, the music was a big leap forward for the band with a much more melodic sound than on p ...
Just got back from a brilliant Steve Hackett gig at Colston Hall in Bristol - fab evening

Steve Hackett true legend! Tonight I found my inner rock goddess! Cried when they played Carpet Crawlers my all time favorite Genesis track - just took me back to Sunday lunch time whilst a student cooking with my roomie Ali just amazing.

Saw Steve Hackett last night in Birmingham, absolutely awesome. Lot of old Genesis classics, some I've not heard in 33years and some I never thought I would hear! Very very talented musos, especially the drummer who did a great job doing what Thompson and Collins did between them. Fab! Sorry I missed Keith though...

For over 2 hours last night at the Steve Hackett gig, my silver-grey whiskers went back to their roots, all 70s dark brown designer stubble.
Steve Hackett's Genesis Revisited gig in Brum last night was just brill! Musical yesteryears all rolled-up into a tasty, comforting wrap.
Here we go, here we go...back on the road with Steven Wilson. 23 October 2013 So we are now back on the tour bus for another stint of touring to promote 'the Raven that refused to sing' album and the new EP/ single 'Drive Home'. In September we went to Australia for 3 gigs. 3 cities, 6 days there, 7 flights and large doses of jetlag. It felt all a bit surreal and if we hadn't stopped by the Sydney Opera House I am not sure it would have felt like we were actually in Australia at all. Hotel, dinner, backstage, gig, bus, airport. It is like travelling in a bubble. But the gigs were good, and there were some very appreciative fans. Good to see Daevid Allen and Orlando from Gong in Brisbane too (even if Daevid did tell Steven all the things he thought were wrong with the gig!) Then we had the UK dates. I always enjoy touring in the UK. In my jazz life I have played hundreds of gigs around Britain, from jazz clubs to Arts Centres to halls and rooms above pubs; a brewery visitor centre in St Austell, Cornwall t ...

A brilliant evening listening to Steve Hackett and his band .
Just checked into my hotel in Chicago ... ends up being the same one I stayed on the summer 2010 Renaissance/Steve Hackett tour. This was the hotel where the truck broke down and we nearly missed the show. Good times, eh Krista, Reed and Benedict? I'm drinking tonite!
Mr Peter Gabriel... fabulous show tonight at the O2. He's voice has barely changed since the early days when Genesis were good. Top man. Looking forward to Steve Hackett on Thursday...brilliant gig week!!
I know that I am going to be in a lot of pain for the next few days but I think it was worth it. It took me back to 1978 when I saw Genesis, with Steve Hackett still with the band, at Earls Court. If only I was 18 again.
I have a great night at the Birmingham Symphony Hall watching Steve Hackett playing 100% Genesis music. My two sons, Matthew & Alex were with me and they certainly enjoyed the music and the show.
Just seen Steve Hackett at he Birmingham Symphony Hall with Holly Tutt. He was brilliant, lots a memories and one or two tears !
I think tonights Steve Hackett concert is probably the best live gig i have ever seen. The man is pure genius and his band are musicians of top quality.and the music will never ever be beaten

Alan Reed is out on tour as a special guest of Steve Hackett. I've seen both of these chaps live within the last year and I couldn't think of a better pair of musicians to share a stage. Pressing the envy button with wild abandon for everyone who will witness it.
Off to see Steve Hackett tonight at Symphony Hall...the best guitarist god put on this earth.and he is playing all the Genesis music that I love so just doesnt get any better
Legendary guitarist, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and former Genesis band member, Steve Hackett returns for second date
And now: The Adventures of Jordan Brown, vol XII: A couple days ago I went to the Royal Albert Hall to see Steven Wilson live. I went there early because I was helping good 'ol Matt Stevens flogging some flyers for the new (I dunno why it's not tagging it) The Fierce And The Dead album. By the way you should check them out, it's great stuff! Royal Albert Hall I was saying. So I was giving flyers away when I find myself face to face with Steve Hackett. Yep. That Steve Hackett. My brain which is an old pentium model, did not react smoothly and all it happened was me saying "sir, it's a great honour meeting you". Then I stood there looking like a just fished trout. After a couple awkward seconds he gracefully said "well, enjoy then" and moved on. So. Yeah. Technically I met Steve Hackett.
So, it didn't start too well with Norwich being outclassed by Arsenal, then Sean Lock was disappointing, bit safe, not as sharp and edgy that I had expected. So enter Steve Wilson, magnificent again. The Royal Albert Hall is a wonderful venue and we had Robert Fripp, Toyah and Tony Levin sitting behind us having just passed Steve Hackett in the corridor, hard to tell if Robert Fripp enjoyed it he doesn't seem to go in for a great deal of smiling. The gig was perfection, they played a new track called 'Wreckage', which was progtabulous. So we went for the final leg at the O2 to see Peter Gabriel, and again I'm afraid that I was disappointed, think it was the venue mostly. Far too big, too much going on and they kept the house lights on too much, so very distracting. It all seemed a bit tired and flat, his voice was wonderful, but I think the sight of thousands of people dancing and having a great time was such a contrast to the previous night when sat in the dark and listened to songs about Trains, chicks ...
Just about to head up to Birmingham to see Steve Hackett in concert - can't wait!
Wow, Birmingham bound later on for Steve Hackett. Overnight bag to pack. Checklist. jim jams, phone charger, hair gel, razor, toothbrush, toothpaste, slippers, smoking jacket, Old Spice aftershave, clothes and oh yes, tickets!

See you all later to the ones who are going, and thanks to Vicky for the 50th birthday treat!

All I can say is that former Genesis guitar player Steve Hackett and his Genesis Revisited tour stop at the Keswick Theatre tonight was one of the best concerts I have ever been at.and I have seen a lot of concerts in the last 40 years !!
Quarkie saw Steve Hackett's Genesis Revisited tour tonight. If you loved old Genesis, ya just can't miss this show. Hackett is one of the truly great guitarists of our time, and the music was sublime! Los Endos, baby!
Just saw Steve Hackett at the Keswick best show ever! He played all the best Genesis music including Los Endos!!! If you're a fan go tomorrow in Glenside or Sunday in NJ you won't regret it!
