The set list will cover a huge part of his discography, with a selection of solo material from early album, including Voyage of the Acolyte – which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year – and a set of Genesis classics which he hasn’t played for years.

These days he tours and writes songs with his wife, Jo, a writer who he describes as a fantastic creative partner, as well as someone to hold hands with.

My new live show draws on my many years in the music business and looks back at the Genesis of my hit career
“Touring isn’t so great when you’re on your own” he said, “but having my wife with me makes it so much better.”

Steve, a renowned and skilled guitarist, first picked up the the instrument aged 12 when he dad bought him one.

He says: “For years before I played the harmonica, and then my dad realised I was getting serious about music when I asked for a chromatic model.

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.
