Steve Hackett: Genesis reunion went well

Steve Hackett: Genesis reunion went well

Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett insists he didn't ''b***ch'' about anyone when he was reunited with the band for a new BBC documentary.

The progressive rock pioneer, who was a member of the group from 1971 to 1977, met with the original line-up, including Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford, for the feature-length documentary: 'Genesis: Together and Apart'.
The musicians also had a press photograph taken recently for the first time in years, following their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
Steve told BANG Showbiz: ''It was very nice ... we spoke at length for about two hours to camera. We had lunch and it was the first time we'd got everyone in one room for quite some time.
''Everyone was talkative but there was a lot of pain and pleasure in equal measure. There's a lot to celebrate and there's a lot to remonstrate.
''I think we're all very honest about each other and that was good. I was able to say nice things, I don't think I said anything nasty or b**ch.''
Meanwhile, Steve, 64, performed a huge concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London last year and the footage has been released on DVD, titled 'Genesis Revisited Live at the Royal Albert Hall'.

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.
