Genesis Reunion 'Possible but Improbable,' says Guitarist Steve Hackett

Genesis Reunion 'Possible but Improbable,' says Guitarist Steve Hackett

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.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
