Yes I read:
Steve Hackett said the following about John Lennon:
“He gave an interview to radio that I’m yet to hear, but I think it’s Nigel Pierce in Norfolk who’s the DJ there. He said to me that he’d got a tape of Lennon talking to him; I’m not sure who he was talking to, but saying that he thought there were two bands who were true sons of the Beatles. He said one was ELO and one was Genesis.
