Steve Hackett in DVD documentary

Steve Hackett is the subject of an upcoming documentary DVD, which looks back over his entire career.

In Steve Hackett – The Man, The Music he talks about his time in Genesis and GTR alongside his solo years. The highs and lows of his path through prog are illustrated with interviews shot over a number of years.

The feature also includes interviews with Steven Wilson, the late Chris Squire and producer Roger King, plus performance clips.

And Hackett offers an insight into his working process via exclusive studio session footage.

The DVD will be launched in September via Wienerworld, and more details will be released in due course. Hackett launches a 14-disc career retrospective in October, and launches a UK tour the same month.

He’s just confirmed a remastered re-release of GTR, his 1985 collaboration with Steve Howe – it’s released on August 28 and all pre-ordered copies will be signed.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
