The Music God’s Best of 2016 Hard Rock Top 30

So, here it is, the FINAL LIST! It’s the granddaddy of them all, The Hard Rock Top 30. I started doing this list almost 7 years ago with a Top 10 and now here we are having expanded!

This list flip flopped a bunch the last week or so, with some late editions coming in that knocked a couple of others off the list. Overall, it was an amazing year for Hard rock and it was extremely hard to choose the final list. There’s still a bunch of other artists that could have easily been here given it being just a bit weaker of a year. I almost could of easily done a Top 50 without much thought.

As always, thoughts/remarks/comments can be left here or emailed to: riotonthesetmedia@gmail.com

Steve Hackett – Genesis Revisited II CD Review

Steve-Hackett-Genesis-Revisited-II

Review:

I almost jumped out of my chair when I was presented a chance to review the new STEVE HACKETT CD, “Genesis Revisted II.” There are precious few bands that I hold in GODLIKE status but Genesis is one of them.

Steve has long been one of my favorite guitarists and songwriters. When I seen the track list for this, I was even more excited. Five of my very favorite Genesis tunes are included here.
