Profile
Stephen Richard "Steve" Hackett (born 12 February 1950) is an English guitarist who first came to fame with Genesis and has gone on to a lengthy and successful solo career. Prior to joining Genesis in 1970, he had worked in a number of bands, most notably Quiet World, which featured his brother John as well. His string of albums with Genesis, from Nursery Cryme (1971) through Wind and Wuthering (1977), form the band's classic period. Outside Genesis, Hackett has had a strong solo career, releasing albums in a variety of styles, from Classical guitar to blues and rock, and has collaborated with a number of other artists from around the world.
