Steve Hackett and much more in Gitarist


About a month and a half ago, former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett and myself had a very interesting conversation about his recent ‘Genesis Revisited’ projects, his never ending search for sonic innovation and his technical and melodic development through the years. The resulting article has now been published in Gitarist and also includes a portrait I took of Hackett. Hackett is one of my absolute favorite guitarists because of his unmatched sense of melody and the interview was one of my best yet, because of his intelligence and British humor. This issue of Gitarist should be in stores today, so be sure to check it out.

Other articles from my hand include an interview with My Baby, a Dutch trio that combines Delta Blues riffs with soulful vocals, dark grooves and a hypnotic atmosphere reminiscent of the Voodoo music of the southern states of the US, and a studio report with the Dutch psychedelic Rock sensation DeWolff – also a trio coincidentally. DeWolff recently recorded their impressive fifth release ‘Grand Southern Electric’ with producer Mark Neill, whose work with The Black Keys on ‘Brothers’ was awarded with a Grammy Award. Mark Neill and I also had a nice conversation about these recordings, which is published in Interface, also in stores today!
