GTR

 

Like most supergroups, GTR didn't stay together very long — only one year and one album with 1986's GTR. Comprised of guitarists Steve Howe (Yes) and Steve Hackett (Genesis), vocalist Max Bacon, bassist Phil Spalding, and drummer Jonathon Mover, the group didn't deviate from the progressive rock of Howe and Hackett's full-time bands. Nevertheless, the group managed to have a number 14 hit with "When the Heart Rules the Mind," and their album went gold. However, Hackett decided to go solo after their success, and his departure put an end to the group.

 

GTR was a short-lived rock band founded in 1985 by former Yes and Asia guitarist Steve Howe and former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett. In comparison to the two leaders' earlier work within progressive rock, GTR's work followed more of an Album Oriented Rock format. The band was short-lived, lasting for two years and one album. Hackett has subsequently been strongly critical of the project, though not necessarily of the other musicians involved in it.

The band's name came from an abbreviation of "guitar" as used for track labelling in multi-track recording studios.
