Brotherly Love: John Hackett Takes Centre Stage With A New Solo Album
He’s known to many as Steve Hackett’s flute-playing brother, but now John Hackett is gracing Prog’s pages on his own merits. And he's ready to showcase his 'other side' on his latest album.
“This is a change of direction for me,” muses John Hackett. “I suppose most people who know of me think of me as Steve’s younger brother who played the flute with him. Well, I’m not as young or as slim as I was but I’m only playing flute on three tracks on this album, and I’m doing all the vocals. Hence the title, Another Life – it’s showing another side of me. It’s very different, and quite liberating.”
