STEVE HACKETT, EX-GENESIS GUITARIST AND ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE,
TO PERFORM WITH HIS ELECTRIC BAND IN MONTREAL AT PLACE DES ARTS, FRIDAY JULY 9 2010
FMPM and http://www.getitpromotions.com/ - - STEVE HACKETT and his electric band, Friday July 9 2010 at http://www.pda.qc.ca/ - HACKETT is considered one of Britainís finest musicians and is best known as guitarist and composer with GENESIS during the classic rock period with Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford. Between 1970 and 1977, HACKETT played on 6 studio albums: Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England by the Pound, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, A Trick of the Tail and Wind & Wuthering, as well as 2 live albums: Genesis Live and Seconds Out. His guitar playing produced some of the most memorable moments of that fabled line-up including dramatic electric guitar solos as in Firth of Fifth as well as sensitive acoustic passages as in Blood on the Rooftops. Following GENESIS, HACKETT began an impressive solo career releasing several highly-rated progressive rock albums including Voyage of the Acolyte and Spectral Mornings. HACKETTís live electric concerts take fans on an extraordinary journey that covers many periods of his career from GENESIS and his early progressive solo work through to the present, woven together by his distinctive and melodic guitar playing.
2010 will cap HACKETTís fourth decade as a professional musician and will also mark the year in which GENESIS is inducted to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
