Not just a credit or two but even a picture of our favorite Squid!
Congratulations, Dave! You must be pretty damn proud of your involvement with such an awesome project - it sounds incredible, of course, and is a very worthy successor to the original Genesis Revisited. It's been quite a while since I've played those older songs but Steve's take has really refreshed them and made me want to listen to them all over again... and again and again.
"Supper's Ready" made me feel just like I did when I heard it for the very first time so many years ago.
I know you've mentioned the project a few times on your facebook page, but I didn't recall ever seeing any mention of it here on KVR, so just wanted to plug it for the fans here and say "great job and thanks for being a part of it!"

Here are some videos from Hackett and King talking about it:
If you want to read about that and all sorts of things I have a new blog called "Squids Travels" here: http://squidstravels.blogspot.com/
I played keys and did some 'additional production' on the album by getting Francis Dunnery and Simon Collins (Phil's son that I have a band with) to sing on the album. On top of that we just played a gig WITH Steve Hackett but if you want to see that video and the backstory to all that then just check out my blog. It tells all... like the old KVR Squids Mega Post X 100! Haha.

If you're too lazy to read my blog at the very least here's me playing with Steve Hackett doing "I Know What I Like". I did the Arp solo using Sonik Synth 2. I actually had in my grips Tony Banks actual Arp ProSoloist just a few days before and nearly used that but... too much hassle to drag that and everything else around on the trains. However SampleTank, SS2, SampleTron all came through for me on the gig. Also a good "put it to the test" situation.
Anyway, check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUpH_w3BUrM

Be aware that it lasts for almost an hour.

Hopefully I'm going to see Los Endos tomorrow night if I can get hold of a couple of tickets. I think they are MIDI'd up, including a double-neck MIDI guitar.
