Original GENESIS guitarist Steve Hackett has commented about the forthcoming Genesis reunion tour:
"First of all I would like to congratulate Tony (Banks), Mike (Rutherford) and Phil (Collins) for flying the flag once again. Good luck to them and I really hope they have a very successful tour. I was originally approached to discuss the possibility of a five piece which would have included PETER GABRIEL and yours truly but since Peter's schedule precludes this, it makes sense for the other three to celebrate the band in their 'own special way' as it were ...."
Hackett's new solo record, Wild Orchids, was released on September 11th.
