Steve Hackett , to me, is one of the greatest guitarists that ever lived and I adore him and his work. When I was connected to the web, I realised thar there were no web sites about this great musician and writer. Although he was mentioned in a few Genesis sites, it was just an acknowlegement that he was a member of Genesis and nothing more. I'm not sure whether if this has changed but I wanted to give Steve a better presence in the web and so this section of "From Genesis To Revelation" is dedicated to him.
I remember getting into Steve's work when I was just getting into Genesis. I think I was in Secondary School at that time. I loved the early songs of Genesis (I love the new ones too!) and I was always so amazed about Steve's playing style and sound. So beautiful and moving. Besides U2, Steve was a big influence on me to pick up the guitar. I am a self-taught guitarist and so is Steve, imagine the influence....sometimes I wonder if Steve takes in students because I would be the first to join!
I always regarded Steve Hackett as a guitarist uninterested in playing lead guitar alone. He is more sensitive to the whole song. He would play what is necessary and not just play lead all the time and I feel that is really lacking in many guitarists today. His high level of skill, technique and feel is such an inspiration to me. I also hear that he's a very nice an humble person. Boy! I really wished I could express myself better!
I really do want to make this site as informative about Steve's work as possible but I'm afraid I can't as I do not have all the materials. In this part of the world, Singapore, I seem to be the only fan and it's so difficult to get his albums here. I think I've spent a lot of time, effort and money on his albums but I never regreted it, ever. Still, my collection falls short but I hope to include items I don't have here in the future, if I'm ever so fortunate to own them in this lifetime.
If you're reading this and wondering who Steve Hackett is, well, I would like to urge you to get one of his albums and just listen to it. What a brilliant guitarist he is, maybe you'll be so crazy and start getting all his other albums after that like I did, well, I'm still trying.
If you're a fan and have articles or information about Steve Hackett, please write to me as such information is very much welcomed here. I think Steve Hackett was very underated as a guitarist and as a result was ,and probably is still, always out of the limelight, well in Singapore anyway. I have never ever seen or read any news or articles about my favourite guitarist anywhere.
Well, all I can say is that I hope information about Steve would grow here in "From Genesis To Revelation" and I plead with those who can contribute to do so. I would be very grateful.
If there was ever a lifelong ambition, I would like to meet Steve in person. Gosh! What would I say to him? I might just get tongue-tied. Well, for now, I can only dream about it. I wonder if Steve Hackett has an internet account? If he does, I wonder what would he think of this site. Well, Steve, if you're reading this, all I can say is that I love your work and I can't wait to meet you ,if that was possible, this is dedicated to you.....
I love to hear it from you!
