Hackett Addresses Genesis Reunion Rumors

Posted July 12th, 2014 @ 7:36pm

Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett took to Twitter to address rumors of a reunion of the original line-up of the band, saying he is open to the idea of a Genesis reunion – although he insists there are no such plans in place.

BUT, Hackett, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford have been spending time together for the recording of an upcoming BBC documentary called ‘Genesis: Together And Apart.’  So really it's just a matter of time.

But Hackett says: "To my knowledge there are no plans for a Genesis reformation including the five of us. We only met to be interviewed for the documentary."

In a later tweet, he adds: "Yes I'm always open to the possibility of a reunion and I hope the others are too, but it's not currently on the table."
