Little known fact, coherent thought can destructively interfere with itself leaving no thought at all, that’s why I prefer incoherent thought.

Really sad news - still at 82 years old he did well. The split with Dave Brock will never be mended now...

I love his playing on Space Ritual - as great as I remember from all the Hawkwind concerts I went too...

Listening to this again also reminds me how good Lemmy was at anchoring the whole sound - miss him too...

3 of those albums I should still have somewhere. Only got into them because a mate at college was nuts about them.
