(Prog) Steve Hackett says he's most proud of his 2008 album Tribute. The former Genesis man says his record was inspired by his guitar role models, Andres Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams.

Hackett tells Eon Music: "Probably the album that I'm proudest of is called Tribute. I did six pieces of Bach on it, and it was just wonderful to be able to do that work that had been attacked by the greats such as Andres Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams.

"It's a bit like Shakespeare for an actor, so I quite see why someone who, having done blockbusters would just want to go and act Hamlet. It's lovely to be able to do things that are out of character - there is no such thing as Steve Hackett - what there is, is an awful lot of music and influences that he assimilated over many, many years, and now I'm in the position to be a sufficiently plausible character actor, to wander in and out of these various schools."
