Artist Portrait

Van Der Graaf Generator

Band, GB
Rock

Formed in the UK in 1967 by Peter Hammill, Chris Judge Smith and Nick Pearne (now deceased). After a period of activity during the 1970s, the band broke up (although not for the first time) in 1978, seemingly for good. The "classic" line-up of Hammill, Guy Evans, Hugh Banton and David Jackson, reformed the band again in 2004 and released the studio album "Present". Since September 2006 Van Der Graaf Generator has worked as a trio, without David Jackson.
