Steve Hackett & Steve Howe

Às vezes acontece... O encontro de duas sumidades do Rock Progressivo. Steve Howe, guitarrista do YES e Steve Hackett, gutarrista do Genesis, fundaram em 1985, o GTR (abreviação de GUITAR). A banda durou apenas dois anos e produziu apenas um álbum. O som do GTR podemos imaginar...

GTR was formed following Steve Howe's departure from Asia in 1985, following which he and former Yes manager Brian Lane discussed plans for a new group. Howe expressed an interest in working with Hackett, who was then approached by Lane. Hackett proved amenable, despite some doubts as to the project setup: his last few solo albums (including the atypical all-classical-guitar project Bay of Kings) had sold disappointingly and despite his interest in continuing his acoustic work, he saw GTR as an option for sustaining his career at a prominent level and also financing future solo work.[1] Once the two guitarists were in place, the group was completed with the recruitment of American drummer Jonathan Mover (ex-Marillion, and later to work with Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Alice Cooper), bass guitarist Phil Spalding (ex-Bernie Torme, Toyah, Mike Oldfield and Original Mirrors) and singer Max Bacon (ex-Moby Dick, Nightwing and Bronz).
