Gary O'Toole w/ Steve Hackett


Steve Hackett doing his "Genesis Revisited" thing (and very well, I might add). The drums are very well recorded for a live event, and drummer Gary O'Toole gets to have increasingly busy fun through this section:

O'Toole does a damn good job on all this material. He's not trying to be Phil Collins, but is of course respecting the parts where required.

I've seen Gary with Steve three times so far, and I love his playing.

You're right, that he's being respectful with his parts without slavishly duplicating what Phil originally played, and I appreciate him for that. That he covers so much of the vocal parts while playing is a nice touch too.

Gary O´Toole was my student in 1980 in London (for about 6 months). Was great student and guy!

Best regards to him!
