    Hawkwind guitarist Huw Lloyd-Langton died last Thursday after a two-year battle with cancer, the BBC reports. He was 61.
    2012 in Memoriam: Musicians We Lost
    Lloyd-Langton, a London native, appeared on Hawkwind's 1970 debut album but left afterward, playing with Widowmaker in the Seventies. The guitarist rejoined Hawkwind in 1979 and played with the band until 1988, appearing on records from 1980's Levitation through 1988's The Xenon Codex. He continued to make guest appearances with Hawkwind in subsequent years.
    "Huw had been bravely fighting cancer for a couple of years, but was determined not to let the battle affect his day to day life. He continued to play his guitar, laugh, joke and share the great love he had in his heart, with all who knew him," Hawkwind wrote on their website. "Huw was one of the great guitarists with an individual style and character. He is gone but never forgotten by any of us. He will live on in our music and in our hearts."

    I never did get to see any version of Hawkwind, sadly.

    I was lucky enough to catch Allan Holdsworth a couple years ago...he was great.
