1986 April
GTR, featuring Steve and ex-Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett, is released, reaching number 11 in the U.S. charts. A successful world tour follows driven by the single "When The Heart Rules The Mind". Hackett leaves the band later that year.
Robert Berry joins a revamped GTR. Other names are considered for the new lineup, including Steve Howe and Friends and Nero and the Trend (the latter developing into Nerotrend). Despite recording a few demos the project would end in October.
1988 November
The guitar compilation Guitar Speak includes Steve’s ”Sharp on Attack”, and Steve contributes to Ultravox keyboardist Billie Curry’s solo album Transportation.
1989 March
Seraphim, Steve’s first collaboration with keyboardist Paul Sutin, is released.

The Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe album is released. Jon Anderson, disenchanted with Yes, recruited Steve, Rick Wakeman, and Bill Bruford to record some tracks. The project developed into an album—and ultimately a band—christened Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe; Bruford’s Crimson band mate Tony Levin handled bass. ABWH embarks on a world tour, with the ABWH performance in Mountainview, CA, broadcast live over pay-per-view; it is subsequently released to video as An Evening of Yes Music Plus, the tag line for the tour.
