DIGGING DEEP...

Although he will always be revered for his groundbreaking part in establishing Genesis as a major band in the 1970s, the solo works of one Stephen Richard Hackett is back catalogue of great quality. Having played a prominent part in making the new progressive sounds of Genesis both vital and fashionable, Hackett began his own career in 1975 with Voyage of the Acolyte and branched out on his own in 1977 since when he has released a steady stream of intriguing guitar orientated albums and furnished a unique style, which has been name checked as a positive influence by the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Alex Lifeson, Brian May (a keen devotee) and Steve Rothery. A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer (2010 with Genesis), Hackett is one of music's good guys, both professionally and personally and he continues to record and release music of the highest calibre whether it is in the fields of prog, classical or beyond.
