Lamb Lies Down Article In Prog Rock Magazine June 2015

Genesis, Prog Rock magazine promo  Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

In the June 2015 edition of Prog Rock magazine there is a very interesting 6 page article on the story of Genesis and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, their last album together as the successful 5-piece band they had become. The article features six of the photographs I took on that memorable occasion at Headley Grange in 1974. Continue reading »

Genesis – Together and Apart Documentary – Mixed Reviews

Together and Apart documentary, broadcast last Saturday night on BBC2, has created quite a stir among the original Genesis fans, mainly because of the gross oversight of the Steve Hackett contribution to the band and also completely ignoring his solo work. You can see some of the great support Steve is getting on his Facebook page.

Anyway I have proof that Steve was the foundation for the other members in a couple of my Headley Grange photographs, he’s actually holding up the tree. Although it looks as though he’s thinking about letting go!

See all the photographs I took on the GALLERY page

ANNOUNCING A NEW GENESIS CAREER RETROSPECTIVE

R-Kive – 3 CD Anthology

Spanning an incredible 42 years, ‘R-Kive’ is a new 3-CD, 37-track set that documents the band’s history in the most comprehensive way yet. Compiled by the band themselves via a process of collaboration and elimination, ‘R-Kive’ takes an in-depth, chronological journey through the catalogue and – for the first time ever for a Genesis collection – includes three personally chosen selections from the solo careers of Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, and Mike Rutherford / Mike + The Mechanics.

Photo Session with Steve Hackett of Genesis in His Studio

When I put on an exhibition of the Genesis photographs at Trading Boundaries last year to coincide with the Steve Hackett unplugged concert being held there, I got the opportunity to meet Steve again – after 37 years!

I asked Steve if I could take some candid photographs of him at work in his studio, either recording or rehearsing. Steve kindly agreed despite having a really hectic schedule of writing his own music, recording and producing Genesis Revisited II, an excellent double album, as well as guesting on other musicians recordings and extra live gigs.

So just before Christmas I visited Steve and his wife Jo at Steve’s studio in Twickenham and took some photographs of Steve – here are some of them….

Steve Hackett Acoustic Concert and Genesis Pictures Exhibition – Together at Trading Boundaries

The exhibition of the Genesis Pictures I took in the 70s were on show at Trading Boundaries last week culminating in it coinciding with the Steve Hackett concert on the evening of Saturday 30th June.

Trading Boundaries was packed with Steve Hackett (and Genesis) fans who all enjoyed a brilliant evening of music. Steve had his nylon strung classical guitar for the evening, not his more usual famous Les Paul electric guitar.

Steve was accompanied by the hugely talented Rob Townsend on flute and saxophone as well as his brilliant jazz solo on a penny-whistle!

Roger King supplied great keyboards and the trio played a wide selection of music from Steve’s albums as well as some of the gorgeous melodic compositions he co-wrote with Genesis.

After almost two hours of music,Steve stayed afterwards and spent almost an hour talking to people from the audience, many of whom had travelled considerable distances to see the concert.

I met lots of people from the audience before and after the concert who were fascinated with the Genesis pictures that they’d never seen before and shared Genesis stories and my experience of taking the photographs of Steve Hackett and the other members of Genesis while they were rehearsing and recording The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway in July 1974      – a mere 38 years ago!

Exclusive Genesis Photographs Exhibition . . . Saturday 23 June – Sunday 1 July 2013 at Trading Boundaries in Sussex

In anticipation of the Steve Hackett gig on Saturday 30th June at Trading Boundaries, Sheffield Green, Near Fletching, East Sussex  TN22 3RB, there is an exhibition of a selection of the rare unpublished photographs I took of the early Genesis line up in 1973-1974. The exhibition will run from Saturday 23rd June to Sunday 1st July and the images will be available to purchase at a specially discounted rate during that period.

   

Steve Hackett
Steve is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound (a favourite of John Lennon). With Steve’s extraordinary versatility in both his electric guitar playing and his composing, he involves influences from many genres, including Jazz, World Music and Blues. He is equally adept in his classical albums that include renditions of pieces by composers from Bach to Satie, his own acoustic guitar compositions that have gained the admiration of many, including Yehudi Menuhin, and ambitious guitar/ orchestra albums such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic. 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 Rooftops the dramatic rock guitar solos of Firth of Fifth and Fountain of Salmacis. As he embarked on his solo career he developed his exceptional range, pushing musical boundaries into exciting areas, inventing new sounds and also techniques such as ‘tapping’. His solo career went from strength to strength and the mid eighties not only saw the hit single Cell 151, but also the Steve Hackett and Steve Howe super group GTR, highly successful in America.

I was commissioned to take photographs of Genesis in 1974 at Headley Grange in Hampshire where they were writing and rehearsing their album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. These photographs have laid dormant in my collection until recently when I decided to post them onto my website www.GenesisPictures.co.uk so they could be shared.
