Saw hackett last nite. Stunning how good he did all these classic genesis tunes. I've seen the cover band "the musical box" a few times and love their shows but hackett blew them away. To hear hackett rip thru these songs and add a bunch of extra guitar parts to these songs awesome. His band did a great job especially the drummer as playing Collins parts is not an easy thing.
Looked like Steve enjoyed it too!
Steve Hackett: Genesis Revisited Live At The Hammersmith Apollo
^^^^^ Is that great, or what?
Really enjoyed Chamber of 32 Doors. Only on Dancing now.
He is a legend...
I really like Nik Kershaws vocals on "The Lamia". Very different from PG'S but great in it's own right. I LOVE that Steve performs these old Genesis songs that haven't been performed by anyone except tribute bands for YEARS!
