Steve Hackett says BBC's new Genesis documentary is 'biased account' of band
Guitarist says the programme ‘ignores’ his extensive solo work and discourages fans from watching Genesis: Together and Apart. Steve Hackett has spoken out against the BBC’s new Genesis documentary, calling it a “biased account” that “ignores” his solo work. Although the guitarist has endorsed the film’s companion piece, a box set called R-Kive, he is discouraging fans from watching Genesis: Together and Apart.
“[The documentary] does not deliver the theme of Together and Apart,” Hackett wrote on Facebook (via Rolling Stone). “Whilst [R-Kive] represents us all equally, the documentary does the opposite ... In interview I spoke at length as much about my solo career as my time in Genesis, but was not given any editorial involvement.”
