Steve Hackett calls another Genesis reunion "possible but improbable." But the group's guitarist from 1970-77 remains open to any potential opportunity.
"I'm always up for it -- I've always said that publicly," Hackett, who's currently touring North America with his Genesis Revisited tour, tells Billboard. "Every now and again there's an approach and then I find myself saying yes and finding it doesn't really go anywhere. I've jammed with (the Canadian Genesis tribute band) the Musical Box when they were doing the (Royal) Albert Hall in London, so why wouldn't I join up with the original guys? I think it would be wonderful, extraordinary, but you've got to get everyone to say yes, it seems to me -- or at least two guys to say 'yes' and hope that everyone else will follow."
Hackett did some new recording for the "Genesis Archive 1967-75" box set and the "Turn It On Again: The Hits Compilation," and he was on board for a mid-00s "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" tour that never transpired. Nevertheless, he says, relations between the Genesis members remain fine.
