STEVE HACK­ETT

(pre­sented by Steve Roth­ery) Steve Hack­ett: “It’s been a great evening. I was en­joy­ing my­self un­til they started hand­ing out the awards, and then you tense up and think, ‘What do I say if I won some­thing?’ But there’s been a lot of love in the room and it’s been a great evening. But it’s not just this evening – it goes on. The genre that in­volves all gen­res is here to stay. It’s the best art form, I think. It’s im­por­tant not to for­get Chris Squire. I was a huge fan, and I re­mem­ber talk­ing to Phil Collins about Yes, and he was a huge fan at that time – big band mu­sic through elec­tric in­stru­ments. And that was Yes.”
