Steve Hackett, who was in Genesis with Peter Gabriel for the group’s hugely influential albums Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot and Selling England by the Pound and later went on to solo success, opened up about his life and career in a candid Q&A with DMU’s Dr Paul Gosling.
A near-capacity audience at the Sue Townsend Theatre heard Steve discuss his collaborations with the likes of Chris Squire and Richie Havens as well as working with Tony Stratton-Smith in the early days of Charisma records.
He said: “He [Stratton-Smith] was very gregarious, he would work his way along the pubs and club organising interviews, signing acts. He was a lovely guy. I thought all record companies were like that and you suddenly realise how special he was.”
