Hawkwind emerged in 1969 from Ladbroke Grove, the heartland of London's counterculture, to become a 'people's band' supported by bikers and hippies alike as they staged free gigs, benefits and protests and welcomed the involvement of any number of creative people - writers, poets, dancers - from within their community. They have had more line-up changes than their only remaining founder member Dave Brock, can remember. Motorhead's Lemmy and legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker were just two of the musicians sacrificed along the way as the band went head to head with the police, customs, the taxman - and each other. This updated edition includes an exclusive interview with Hawkwind leader Dave Brock, conducted especially for this update and also reveals details of their new album Take Me To Your Leader, released in September 2005.With the memories of many of those who were there, this is the story of an extraordinary 35-year career, the music and the band, whose fans still loyally turn out for conventions and are rewarded with 'private festivals', set against a background of sex, drugs, madness, writs, rage and revenge.

Review:

This bitter and entertaining study of hippy ideals versus the grubby, hard cash reality of keeping a band going will not disappoint.' --Mojo
