In candid and personal interviews, filmed over a number of years, Steve reveals the joys, tensions and success of a life in progressive rock.
Starting with his early childhood years to his arrival at Genesis, playing a key role during their most innovative era on such seminal albums as Selling England by the Pound and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, the film goes on to trace Steve’s multifaceted solo career.
From classic albums such as Voyage of the Acolyte and Spectral Mornings, via Steve’s virtual invention of the classical-crossover genre with Bay of Kings and Sketches of Satie, right up to recent albums like Wolf Light and the hugely successful Genesis Revisited project, Steve Hackett remains a singular voice in music.
Exclusive studio sessions feature Steve reliving some of his key musical moments and offers a virtual masterclass in some of his electric and acoustic guitar techniques.
