A Thank you. I really enjoyed the concert. Lugano is such a breathtakingly beautiful place too.
A I enjoy playing good music whenever it was written, particularly the Genesis songs that I had a strong hand in creating. Some of the best things I've ever written was during my time with that band, but I enjoy playing things from all parts of my history. Playing those Genesis songs brings back the past in a most positive way.
A I think they're good bands, but my heroes tend to be from an earlier era. I enjoyed the experience with GTR but I feel that some of the best performances we gave were not captured on record or film to my knowledge.
A I'm currently working with Chris Squire on an album that promises to fit the bill of what's best about earlier as well as more modern eras. I've been impressed recently by some of the stuff I've heard recently played by bands like Elbow and Magenta, who I think are both innovative and promise great things for the future.
A Inside Out are a very good company who really believe in the acts that they sign.
A I actually did sing on my first solo album, Voyage of the Acolyte, and also on some old Genesis material - a long version of It's Yourself/Los Endos. I've worked hard on my vocal technique over the years and I get great pleasure singing on current material.
A I think this album explores the corners of the guitar, in all its glory. As ever it is very varied, each track is totally different to its predecesor. It's a journey within sound, a travelogue through known and unknown places.
A I expect it'll happen some time in the not too distant future, if we can get everyone together in the same place at the same time! I still love all the guys and the work we did together. I carry it in my heart always.
