...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
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.

GUITARIST STEVE HACKETT OPEN TO GENESIS REUNION

Genesis pictured in their heyday.

GUITARIST Steve Hackett has revealed he is open to playing with prog rock legends Genesis again if the band ever reforms.
There has been mounting speculation the 70s rockers could play together again.

The 65-year-old Hackett was part of the legendary line-up alongside Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel.

His guitar parts are fundamental to Genesis’ influential albums like Nursery Cryme and the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

Hackett will headline the Music Hall tonight to recreate those halcyon Genesis years and also perform solo material.

And he admits to a yearning for Genesis, who met up briefly for a 2014 documentary, to take to the stage together again.

He said: “I would be open for a Genesis reunion.

“The fact that I honour the Genesis material and carry the candle for the band shows I would say yes to playing together again.

“However you have to remember there has been an awfully long time waiting for that.

“I was part of that golden period of Genesis when Peter Gabriel was involved and I am still drawn to that music.

“A lot of people who went on to become leaders in their field were involved in those early efforts.

“Genesis were different from most progressive bands as we were not driven by technique.

“It was a bit ramshackle at times and we deliberately allowed it to breathe.”
