As he embarked on his solo career he pushed musical boundaries, inventing new sounds and also techniques such as 'tapping'. His solo career went from strength to strength and the mid-80s not only saw the hit single ‘Cell 151’, but also the Steve Hackett and Steve Howe supergroup GTR.
After GTR, Steve worked further with many renowned musicians such as Paul Carrack, Bonnie Tyler, John Wetton and Brian May, who has credited Steve as an early influence. Steve went on to produce his hit album Genesis Revisited.
Genesis' induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March 2010 stands as a testament to the enduring qualities of their music. Steve has always held a torch for the classic Genesis music. His Genesis Revisited II, a double CD, involves several iconic artists and contains many Genesis favourites.
