So true about Anthony Phillips. He played 12 sting, by the way, on a couple of songs for Hackett on Out of the Tunnel's Mouth, you may already know. And yeah, I get such a chuckle just thinking about Ballad of the Decomposing Man.

I'm glad to see that this thread has sparked some interesting discussion! I don't know a ton about music theory, but I enjoyed reading about it.

Oh yeah, Anthony Phillips! I bet you're right. I haven't listened to much of him yet, but I've been interested in finding some of his music.

Seventy-nine years ago there were three cousins whose names were Rose Marymarsh, Mary Rosemarsh, and Marsh Maryrose.

I remember seeing Steve Hackett live on the "Darktown" tour. They were amazing that night! The audience was full of screaming hounding people who were relentless. All through the night people screamed .."Hey Steve!"  "You blow away Genesis!" "You make them look sick!"  Steve Hackett wore a pair of sunglasses through the entire show and at one point before starting a piece, he stared at the audience allowing his glasses to slowly slide down his nose. They screamed relentlessly as he glanced around the room saying nothing for a whole of 3 minutes. I would love to know what he was thinking. I was cracking up trying to imagine what was on his mind.
