Congratulations to these young men, Although, I'm an Acoustic picker. I do believe they are on to some thing that should ignite a spark to music stores everywhere. It's more than selling, guitars, it's an idea that you can create something with the input from experts to help you achieve your goal.
D.Brock should grow some balls . He can't tour because another man 5000 miles away gives him stress. Ha ha ha ! It just that side by side by side Nik Turner show smokes Brock . Brock try a real job like we all do . That's stress ! Grow balls !
I quite agree with Jimski, the US lost an enemy after the Cold War, but since 9/11 they passed new laws as a means of invading privacy, the fight against terrorism and the protection of restricted information went up so many notches, especially after recent leaks by Manning/Snowden, that even visa information in the public domain would be considered a breach of security. The origin of this rumour is dubious, and the US authorities should investigate, it should have also been a 'no brainer' for the person concerned that sometimes it's best to keep your mouth shut. It's all a bit sad really, because it's buried the real story, that the difference between the UK and US tour is a gruelling fourteen thousand mile trek, scuppered by the financial/legal implications of having two HW's playing the same towns, and this was going to be part way through the UK tour. So, tired, stressed, pissed off and being seventy three is the likely story, enough said.
What a tosspot.
So, the quote is "He claimed it was making him ill and he had to cancel his tour due to me. It transpired that his visa was turned down because of all his drug convictions and gun convictions and GBH convictions. I don't personally get involved in that and I don't go on the Internet much. It's just hearsay. I think it's crazy."
He doesn't get involved, but took time out to repeat the rumour? Oh, and the only person who can be tracked down as the origin of the 'rumour' appears to have a hardly used profile, no links to or likes to Hawkwind, says that the information came from a source at US immigration (surely National Security isn't that lax in the USA?) and the posting immediately after this originated was a confirmation of this by .... Turner's tour manager.
on the 9th Oct a Hawkwind member posted on facebook "the doctor's advice was to not undertake the long flights and consequent 12, 000 mile round trip and to rest....I'm getting a bit sick of all the b--- concerning this and the visas. We got visas, and do you really think we wanted to pull this tour? I personally have never toured America before apart from our brief visit to Nearfest in 2007..a dream for all of us...none of us took this decision lightly ---- "
some care needed in believing what is said in this article!!!
Albert hall? I think it's aliver hall
Nik's ego is so big, it's bigger than HW ever were, and all these interviews where he comes across as holier than thou, is just massaging the ego, and making it so big it could soon engulf the planet.
Incidentally, on a different note, re Dave Cantor's comment, Space Ritual wasn't the last album Lemmy played bass on, it was 1975's Warrior On The Edge Of Time.
Great band! Poorly written article though...
Music from a time when FM radio actually mattered -- it has gotta be cool.
It sure is!
Why is it so important to mention that the LATE Doug Hopkins wrote their first 2 (of FIVE) top 50 pop radio songs?? OR why not also mention that Robin Wilson or Robin and Jesse Valenzuela, their other guitar player, wrote the other radio hits. Like "Allison Road", "Mrs. Rita" and Robin, against Doug's graces, mind you, wrote "Until I Fall Away"? I know these things, because I was the producer of their first 3 records, including this infamous "New Miserable Experience".

Beautiful CD! Left me with "a song in my head".
No he's not committed, as stated by cbrbart Bi-Polar is very treatable. I was hoping to get a chance to see him in Cleveland or Columbus, but something came up (not on my part) that I am unable to attend. I hope that those of you that do go, that you post some pictures on facebook. Mr. Ant has many fans here in the U.S and I hope that he continues to tour for some time. I would really love to see him for I have never been to one of his concerts.
Please join anitakeys and friends at these upcoming performances: Sept.6th at The Foundry for Cleveland Music Festival, Sept.14th at Rockefeller's on Mayfield Rd, Sept. 21st at Ingenuity Festival 2013!
Catch her Live, Anita performs all of these excellent songs and more. She is incredible live with her "Friends". Must see!
He's Bi-Polar...It's a treatable condition and he is doing just fine...
Thanks for your concern....
I'm glad he's coming to Cle...I had a great time back on the day with his songs as the soundtrack.....
