Rob Cottingham annouces special appearance from Steve Hackett on his forthcoming album

Rob-Cottingham-thumb

Rob Cottingham is delighted to announce that the Rock Hall of Fame inductee, Steve Hackett, has recorded a guitar solo specially for his solo album, Captain Blue.

Steve Hackett 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) and has led a highly successful solo career since leaving Genesis in 1977, after his work on the Wind & Wuthering album, including the song penned by Hackett and Collins, Blood On The Rooftops - one of Rob's all time favourite albums and songs.

In a statement, Rob said "I am greatly honoured to have Steve contributing an awesome guitar solo to the last track of my solo album. I have been a massive Genesis and Steve Hackett fan since I was a lad, so for Steve to kindly offer up his talent has meant a lot to me, not just at a professional level, but at a personal level, too. The solo is stunning and so appropriate to the music and sentiment of the piece - I cannot wait for people to hear it!
This also completes the line up announcements - and what a line up, with myself on vocals and keys; Heather Findlay on vocals;  Adam Hodgson on guitars; Dr Goat Foot on bass and Gary O'Toole on drums, and a guitar solo by Steve Hackett and a narration by Shane Rimmer. In terms of talent - an embarrassment of riches!"

Steve has been extremely busy recently having recently accepted awards at September's Prog Awards for Squackett's Anthem with 'Life Within A Day' and a Lifetime Achievement award for Genesis.
Steve released the Squackett album with Chris Squire from Yes in Summer 2012, and he is presently promoting a brand new album, Genesis Revisited II, just released, and an album tour in Spring 2013, which includes a kick-off on the "Cruise To The Edge" Florida tour in March.  Details can be found on http://www.hackettsongs.com/ where pre-orders for the new album can be taken, and tickets for the gigs can be booked.

Steve was delighted to be involved in Rob's solo project stating "I very much enjoyed doing the solo for the end part of Rob's majestic Captain Blue."
