Steve Hackett
His latest album basks in the title of ‘Genesis Revisited II’. A follow-up to 1996’s ‘Genesis Revisited’, as the title suggests, it sees the guitarist reinterpreting the golden era of the great band - one in which he was crucially involved – while also remaining true to the original spirit which produced such a remarkable string of timeless songs. This will be a double CD, as well as a quadruple set on vinyl. That’s nearly 150 minutes of music – “It’s a project of Wagnerian proportions!” says Hackett.

“This time around, I’ve tried to satisfy what everyone wants, including myself. Initially, I was thinking of just going for the best songs not featured on the first album. But then people thought I should do those tracks where the guitar was emphasized. So, I’ve done both. I’ve also included four songs, which have Genesis connections, where the song was written originally for the band, or rehearsed by them. For instance, there’s ‘Please Don’t Touch’, which I wrote for Genesis, but eventually ended up recording myself.”
