THE VOICE OF STEVE HACKETT'S 'GENESIS REVISITED'
EXCLUSIVE Z O O M INTERVIEW
ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS
with RAY SHASHO
TO WATCH IN ITS ENTIRETY
Having worked with ABBA's Michael B. Tretow, Rednex (remember Cotton Eye Joe?), being in and out of various bands, trying to write "hit songs" but never being in sync with time, Nad's dreams of success had almost come to an end when he was accidentally lured back into the
prog rock scene...
In 2008 Nad was involved with the highly acclaimed Unifaun album; a project of original music paying homage to the 70's era Genesis.
The Unifaun album, and in particular Nad's voice (often described as a mix of Gabriel and Collins) caught the attention of Roine Stolt of The Flower Kings and Transatlantic. Together they formed Agents Of Mercy in 2009 and have released three albums to date: The Fading Ghosts of Twilight (2009), Dramarama (2010) and The Black Forest (2011) as well as touring extensively.
Then one day an email arrived in Nad's inbox: "Hi Nad, this is Steve Hackett..."
Acclaimed by many to be GENESIS’S finest album, Selling England By The Pound will be performed by Hackett and company in its entirety. Supported by some of the best musicians on the planet, Steve's unique guitar work remains the fulcrum on which this challenging and exhilarating show is balanced. In addition, Hackett will perform selections from Seconds Out. Rescheduled & New USA shows begin April 2022 including four dates in Florida.

THE ROCK STAR CHRONICLES
-By Literary Titan (5) STARS
The Rock Star Chronicles, by Ray Shasho, is a splendid book written by a music enthusiast who has poured their heart and soul into it. It’s a story of a boy who loved rock music, and his obsessive passion of it earned himself the name Rock Raymond. He went to school but instead was schooled in all matters of music while his peers were buried chin-deep in coursework. He then became a radio DJ and has now compiled a book on all interviews he held with Rock gods who raided the airwaves back in the 70s and 80s. It’s a compilation of interviews with outstanding vocalists, legendary guitarists and crazy drummers in the rock music scene. Each interview gives a reader an in-depth view into their personal lives and the philosophies that guide their lives which all serve to humanize these great icons. For readers who are old enough to call themselves baby boomers this book will bring old memories back to life. Millennials, on the other hand, may think of this book as a literal work of the Carpool Karaoke show.
The Rock Star Chronicles is a book I didn’t know I was waiting for. To come across a book that will talk me into trying something new. One brave enough to incite me to venture into new frontiers. This book made me a believer- I am now a bona fide Rock and Roll music fan.
Ray Shasho masterfully gets the interviewees talking. He smartly coaxes answers from them with crafty questions designed to get a story rolling out of them. The artists talk about diverse issues ranging from music, politics, and their social engagements. Having been on the music seen all his life, Ray Shasho knows the buttons to press, how to get them comfortable about talking about their lives.
The book’s cover is befitting of its subject matter with the leather look offering a royal background to the golden letter print. It speaks to how high a level rock music holds in the pecking order- arguably, modern music as we know it has originated from blues and rock music. The second noteworthy thing is the use of high-definition pictures to reference the musician being interviewed in every sub-chapter. This ensures that the book is for both original rock and roll lovers and aspiring new ones. Together is makes for a refreshing and consistently enjoyable read.
I recommend this book to rock music enthusiasts, aspiring musicians wondering what it takes and all readers curious to learn new things by going back in time.
