Steve Hackett Guests On Rob Cottingham Solo Record
Touchstone frontman Rob Cottingham has revealed his upcoming solo album, Captain Blue, will feature a guitar solo by Steve Hackett.
The former Genesis member describes the record as “majestic” and adds: “I very much enjoyed doing the solo.”
Cottingham says: “I’m greatly honoured to have Steve’s awesome solo on the last track of Captain Blue.
“I’ve been a massive fan since I was a lad, so for Steve to offer up his talent meant a lot to me. The solo is stunning – so appropriate to the music and sentiment of the piece. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
His band includes Heather Findlay on vocals, Adam Hodgson on guitars, Dr Goat Foot on bass and Gary O’Toole on drums. Narration is provided by Shane Rimmer.
Captain Blue is due out in January 2013 on Heavy Right Foot Records. Listen to a demo here and view the promo video below.
