Steve Hackett: “Emerald and Ash” (2010)

Steve Hackett was the lead guitarist of Genesis from 1970-77, after which he released a series of solo albums interspersed with side projects such as the supergroup GTR, which he formed with Yes’ Steve Howe.

I believe this song was inspired by Hackett’s breakup with second wife Kim Poor, who designed most of his album covers.

Sad and glorious, it’s the kind of song that deserves loud listening in a quiet place. If this song is a kiss off, it’s the most beautiful one you’ll ever hear.
