I saw Hawkwind umpteen times - they are still touring but don't get out of the UK much...

Most surreal was a gig in Christiania, Copenhagen 10 years ago or so, which until recently, was a place where cannabis was freely available and the police had a policy of "looking the other way most of the time".... Now I don't advocate drug use, but that gig had an atmosphere you don't get every day...

And the naked dancer 20 years ago... you sure about that? That would be 86/7, which would be the Chronicle of the Black Sword or thereabouts....

My first Hawkwind gig was a Hawkfest in 89 at Brixton Academy....

I really should get round to seeing them again before Dave Brock retires.

I saw hawkwind in 86/87 and I'm sure I would have remembered a naked dancer... but then I did have a pot noodle before the show.

I have Hawkwind to thank for being slightly deaf in my right ear. The Regal in Hitchin 1982 standing right in front of the speakers. Pished & High as a Kite 8) Happy days :wink:

The naked dancer would most likely have been Stacia but she left the band in 1975...how stoned were you? :wink: :wink: :P :P :lol: :lol:
