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. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
