I am writing you instead of Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett-which I guess shows how much of a coward I am--I so love what you have done--and I so much love the music which has guided and changed my life from 1976 onward..you have done what I fantasized about as a 19 year old intern at IONA College back in 1977--and I wish I had accomplished what you have done--my hat is SO off to you=---thank you for explaining in such loving detail the music of my life--I will never forget this...ever.
Hi, dear Jeff ~
First, thank you so very much for writing me..and leaving so many supportive, positive messages everywhere !
Your enthusiasm (and the fact that my video work has touched you and your love for Genesis/Steve Hackett/Anthony Phillips, so deeply) is infectious!
I so enjoyed being with Steve and Jo Hackett, the GR2 Band and Armando Gallo, a few weeks ago - as Armando debuted his new "I Know What I Like" App for Steve, at my collaborator Tom Lord-Alge's Miami Beach Home.
If you like my Genesis work...you'll be BLOWN AWAY by all the hard work that Armando, Cheryl (his wife) and Gabriel Foux (App Designer, from Argentina) have done to digitize his historic "I Know What I Like" book.
As you probably know, Armando was one of the first rock magazine photographers to cover Genesis (back in 1969, on)..and his compendium of historic photos of the group is unparalleled.
It was a dream come try for me (an ardent fan of the Gabriel/Hackett era of Genesis, since 1975) to film Armando showing Steve the new app (and all his old photos of Steve, et al) during this private debut showing).
I've been working very, very hard to meet the challenge of properly editing down such an historic occasion...one which I hope everyone (and you!) will equally enjoy.
A true, rare "behind-the-scenes" look into this longtime friendship between artist and photographic biographer!
All my best to you, for always...
