Steve Hackett Wins Best Prog 3/1/22
"And even after we’d been taken to The New Jerusalem, we still had some treats left in the (musical) box. ‘The Cinema Show’ with its delicate intro/verses and fantastic closing section never fails to deliver, and didn’t tonight. Slight deviation from the ‘Seconds Out’ presentation with the hard ending being replaced by the fading ‘Selling England by the Pound’ outro." Following in the footsteps of our previous WRC Best Prog Performance Award winners, Dream Theater (2020) and King Crimson (2015), both announced respectively, exactly one year and five years ago today, guitarist Steve Hackett's third and final night at The London Palladium on his 'Seconds Out + More' UK tour (pictured), has duly won our 2021 award, and to celebrate, today's Podcast Of The Day is our memorable chat with the ex-Genesis legend from nearly three years ago.
