Steve Hackett joined Genesis in 1970, remaining with the band throughout the ‘classic' era (from 1971) and when Peter Gabriel left and Phil Collins took centre stage (in 1975). Eight albums later, Hackett left to go solo in 1977, forming prog supergroup GTR with Yes and Asia’s Steve Howe along the way.

“Steve Hackett, definitely.” (Thanks, jalapeno)
“Cant argue with any of these but poor old Steve Hackett left out again.” (Thanks, bbcoz)
“Does anybody here know Mr Hackett at all? He's never been that showman as some others mentioned here. He is even a somewhat forgotten musician but his and his LP's contribution to early Genesis sound is undeniable. Even today he is still creating some good guitar oriented music.” (Thanks, unifaun)
