DAVE BROCK has fronted the legendary Hawkwind since 1969. Ahead of their Cardiff date he chats to ANDY HOWELLS about the band, past, present and future
“WHEN you start off you only live for the day,” says Dave Brock as he looks back over Hawkwind’s amazing 43-year history.
“As time goes by you get tours booked up years in advance. We still tour all over the place.”
Originally formed as Hawkwind Zoo in 1969, the band had seemingly unlikely beginnings with founder member and former member of The Famous Cure, Dave Brock playing numerous turns as a busker on the streets of London.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
