From the early Seventies onwards, Hawkwind embraced an honourable tradition of free gigs, benefits and protests. They embraced artistic contributions from writers, poets and dancers. In fact they embraced almost everything except themselves. This is the fascinating chronicle of their troubled 40 year odyssey through the changing fashions of rock while enduring endless fallings-out and innumerable personnel changes. This is an updated new edition that includes Hawkwind's bitter split with long-serving bassist Alan Davey, the recruitment of Mr Dibs, a member of the road crew, to the bass job; the death of the band's keyboard player, Jason Stuart, at 40; the return of a very old face, Tim Blake, on keyboards following a near-fatal car crash; the group's 40th anniversary celebrations; the rise of a new version of Hawklords, featuring by arch enemy Nik Turner; Hawkwind holidays - whereby the group accompany a group of fans on vacation; and, Huw Lloyd-Langton's recent serious illness with kidney failure.
