RETROPOPIC 444 - STEVE HACKETT: THE JOURNEY TOWARDS, AROUND & AFTER 'SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND'

In this 32 minute podcast guitarist Steve Hackett shares his thoughts with The Saint of RETROPOPIC RADIO regarding his early days in Genesis focusing in on the time during the making of 'Selling England By The Pound'.

What are his thoughts on 1972 single release 'Happy The Man'? How did he get to meet the young Richard Branson? What was his inspiration for Foxtrot song 'Horizons'? How did Peter break the news to the group he was going to appear on stage in a Red Dress and a Fox's head? Was that the inspiration for the album cover of Foxtrot or did the cover art inspire Peter? What frame of mind was Steve in around the time of 'Selling England By The Pound'? What key elements did Steve create for 'Firth of Fifth' & 'The Battle Of Epping Forest'? How highly does he regard 'Selling England By The Pound'? Which Genesis album was the favorite of Yes's Chris Squire? What project does Steve hope to finish shortly?

Remember RETROPOPIC RADIO is the global home of the great artist interview.
