Hawkwind Postpone US Tour Over Brock Stress

Gutted: Brock with Hawkwind
Hawkwind say they’ve been forced to postponed their planned US tour after mainman Dave Brock was diagnosed with stress as a result of Nik Turner’s attempts to register the band name.
The former member reactivated his legal bid to become owner of the title ‘Nik Turner’s Hawkwind’ last month, just days after Brock was given the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Prog Awards.
That led to the space-rock outfit’s only remaining founding member falling ill, culminating in the decision to put back the band’s first North American tour in decades, which was due to begin on October 9.
Hawkwind say in a statement: “Doctors have confirmed Dave’s condition is stress related, aggravated by the trademark dispute in the United States which could result in years of litigation.

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.
