Legendary Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett guested at SAE London’s Kingsland Road campus for the latest in the renowned SAE Alumni Association ‘Meet the Professionals’ series.
Hackett, a true perfectionist answered questions from viewers live on camera via a special interactive Internet-stream broadcast.
Within minutes of the broadcast going live there were 608 unique viewers. Figures 21 days later showed that 1376 more had looked in and the numbers are still climbing.
The session was hosted by Carlos Lellis, SAE London’s Audio Programme Coordinator, himself a graduate in guitar from Berklee College of Music, Massachusetts.
Hackett, known and respected for his extra fine guitar playing and creation of dramatic sounds and recording over the past 40 years, shared his knowledge with a student audience of upcoming producers, engineers and fans of his legendary career.
His latest album ‘Genesis Revisited II’, a follow-up to 1996’s ‘Genesis Revisited’ reinterprets the golden era of the great band from 1971-1977.
The release includes Genesis classics and additional songs with the participation of guests like Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Simon Collins (Phil Collins’ son), Neal Morse, John Wetton and Nik Kershaw.
