Weekend Musical Diversion: GTR

January 8, 2011

Combine guitar players from early versions of both Genesis and Yes and you get one of the 80’s greatest supergroups – GTR.  The band features Yes’ Steve Howe and former Genesis guitar player Steve Hackett.  Being the guitar nerd that I was, I saw this band play Chicago’s Riviera Theater with couple buddies in the summer of 1986 and it was one of my earliest and favorite concert memories.  “The Hunter” is probably my favorite song off that album and has a haunting bassline combined with a dated 1980’s sound.  This is good ol’ classic rock at its finest.  I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy…

Hi Lance: Thanks for checking the song out…I know it does sound dated. But like a lot of songs from our youth, it’s one of those songs that transforms me back to that time. If I we’re to listen with fresh ears, my feelings about the song might be different. In any case, thanks again for listening and I hope you have a rockin’ week!
