Genesis - Steve Hackett: Genesis reunion went well

Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett insists he didn't ''b***ch'' about anyone when he was reunited with the band for a new BBC documentary.

The progressive rock pioneer, who was a member of the group from 1971 to 1977, met with the original line-up, including Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford, for the feature-length documentary: 'Genesis: Together and Apart'.

The musicians also had a press photograph taken recently for the first time in years, following their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.

Steve told BANG Showbiz: ''It was very nice ... we spoke at length for about two hours to camera. We had lunch and it was the first time we'd got everyone in one room for quite some time.

''Everyone was talkative but there was a lot of pain and pleasure in equal measure. There's a lot to celebrate and there's a lot to remonstrate.

''I think we're all very honest about each other and that was good. I was able to say nice things, I don't think I said anything nasty or b**ch.''

Meanwhile, Steve, 64, performed a huge concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London last year and the footage has been released on DVD, titled 'Genesis Revisited Live at the Royal Albert Hall'.

Talking about the concerts, Steve said: ''We'd done a lot touring by then and the band was very tight by then and the audience was extraordinary, it was a full house and the audience went mad. There was a fantastic atmosphere that night.

''We had a lot of lights on the night, not just lightening up the stage but the hall itself. It's like some kind of spaceship sat in the middle of London.

''It had been a dream of mine ever since I started making music professionally in 1970. When I first joined Genesis we were doing clubs and colleges, we never did the Albert Hall, even though we ended up playing larger places than that.''
