In candid and personal interviews, filmed over a number of years, Steve reveals the joys, tensions and success of a life in progressive rock.

From classic albums Voyage of the Acolyte and Spectral Mornings, via Steve's virtual invention of the classical-crossover genre with Bay of Kings and Sketches of Satie, right up to the recent album Wolf Light and the hugely successful Genesis Revisited project, Steve Hackett remains a singular voice in music.
Exclusive studio sessions feature Steve reliving his key musical moments and offers a virtual masterclass in his electric and acoustic guitar techniques.
