Official Site : With Genesis, Steve’s guitar playing produced some of the most memorable moments, from the sensitivity of his acoustic sound on Horizons and Blood on the Rooftopsto the dramatic rock guitar solos of Firth of Fifth and Fountain of Salmacis.

@allmusic : In the years since, while Phil Collins may have enjoyed pop/rock stardom and an acting career, and his other bandmates their periodic successes, Hackett has come the farthest as a star performer and composer in his own right.

@last.fm : Hackett’s tours alternate between acoustic performances (often accompanied by his brother John Hackett (flute) and Roger King (keyboards) as the Steve Hackett Acoustic Trio) and more rock-oriented performances.
