Robert Calvert (Hawkwind)- Musician Profile

Many have sought reasons for this in him being bipolar, others have pointed out that whereas all the other Hawkwind members were basically musicians pure sec, Calvert was a multi artistic performer. Whatever the case might be, it stands above doubt that his contributions to the band in its first decade were probably greater than those of anyone else with the exception of Dave Brock.

In the following I will try to highlight some facets about Robert’s character, that are hard to find in any detail in the many existing biographies of him that are available. Progressive Rock Music Ultimate Discography ... with Free MP3, Videos and Reviews.

David Bowie Photographs 1972. DAVID BOWIE WONDERWORLD. Mazzu Stardust: BOWIE Y EL OCULTISMO (fragmento de “Season of the Witch” de Peter Bebergal) Fragmento de “Season of the Witch” de Peter Bebergal Traducción: Mazzu Cuando a sus diecinueve años de edad Cameron Crowe visitó a David Bowie para realizarle una entrevista para la revista Rolling Stone en 1975, encontró a un Bowie pasado de merca encendiendo velas negras para protegerse de las fuerzas sobrenaturales invisibles que lo acechaban desde afuera de las ventanas.

Mazzu Stardust: BOWIE Y EL OCULTISMO (fragmento de “Season of the Witch” de Peter Bebergal)

Bowie acababa de terminar el rodaje de El Hombre que Cayó a Tierra con el director Nicolas Roeg. Era una época apasionante para los OVNIs y los encuentros extraterrestres, y para Bowie era fácil moldearse a sí mismo en el papel. Hacía rato que venía cantando sobre el temor existencial al espacio exterior y el descenso de estrellas de rock alienígenas, pero estaba muy por delante de la conciencia cultural. A pesar de sus oscuros intereses ocultistas, que casi provocaron un final trágico de su aún notoria carrera, los personajes cósmicos y mágicos de Bowie trasladaron al rock a una nueva etapa. What has David Bowie got to do with occultism and Gnosticism? Part 1. Feeling "that the human complex is such an inadequate form of existence", Bowie said that he experienced "an incredible loneliness".

What has David Bowie got to do with occultism and Gnosticism? Part 1

He has always styled himself as a creature dwelling in the "human zoo", tattooed with Tarot cards (like Ray Bradbury's 1951 'Illustrated Man'); a 'Karma–Man' (which dates from 1967, and was on the live set list until 1970, talking about Zen–Buddhism joining the Tibet Society in 1967 with his then producer Tony Visconti) sitting "on my karma, dame meditation" ('Little Wonder', 1997) and being a 'Silly Boy Blue' (1966, "Child of Tibet", "Mountains of Lhasa") who never leaves his body now and so has "got to wait to die". — (On the live set list in 2001)'Dame meditation' most probably refers to the Kundalini, the yogic fire–snake that resides in the genital region, coiled waiting to arise to the head of the yogi and enable illumination symbolised by a lotus flower.

In 1967 David Bowie received a letter, his very first piece of fan mail, from 14-year-old Sandra Dodd from New Mexico.

Everyone should read this letter to a fan from a young David Bowie

Sandra's uncle was a local radio station manager who had recently given her a promo copy of Bowie's debut album. After listening Sandra wrote to Bowie to tell him that his music was as good as The Beatles, offering to kick off a fan club for him in the US. According to Letters of Note where the original transcript is published, the young musician - who had yet to enjoy mammoth global success - was thrilled and immediately wrote back to Sandra from the office of his manager Kenneth Pitt.

Dear Sandra, When I called in this, my manager's office, a few moments ago I was handed my very first American fan letter - and it was from you. I was so pleased that I had to sit down and type an immediate reply, even though Ken is shouting at me to get on with a script he badly needs. The Ziggy Stardust Companion - Album rear cover. The image above is of the album's rear cover as seen on the original 1972 LP.

The Ziggy Stardust Companion - Album rear cover

Like the front cover - there are slight differences to be found in the releases for different countries and over time. The most common are slight colour variation (i.e. the exact colour shades vary - probably due to the different colours used in printing runs), cropping (i.e. slightly more or less of the phone box is shown) and border surrounds (i.e. some have white borders, some black, most have no borders). The "A GEM PRODUCTION" logo appeared solo on all Ziggy Stardust LPs before December 1972. After December 1972 all David Bowie LPs carried the "MAINMAN" logo as well. Hence, the image above was a later production LP. Larry Wallis interview.

Larry Wallis interview

Such is the case with Larry Wallis. To those with savings accounts, careers, and snot nosed brats running around, this name means probably nothing. Poor saps. To the pot huffing, vinyl-hoarding dateless wonders of the world, this name is known for repeating belch-like through out the underground of British Rock for the past thirty years or so. Wallis led The Pink Fairies (the U.K.' Deep purple a to z. Deep Purple History: 48 Margaret Street once housed the famous 'The Speakeasy' club, where Mk 2 played their first gig.

The Details: Deep Purple played twice at The Speakeasy in 1969, Mk 1 on March 20th just before their second US tour, Mk 2 on July 10th in front of what Ian Gillan has since described as a small audience of '35 or so'. The venue opened in 1966, and became well known as a late night drinking club popular with customers associated with the music industry, ranging from roadies through to The Beatles.

In 1976 I was living in Mülheim/R. and it was the year that I became member of "1. Deutscher Ringtausch", a club of record collectors. I was like member #87. Alfred Hebing had been a member for some time and as he lived close by (in Essen), we struck up a friendship (which lasts to the very day).

As our (then) girlfriends (now wives) would also get along fine, things ran smoothly, and soon my friend Alfred and I were offered the opportunity to make a music magazine for the club. Untitled.

He was part of many absolutely groundbreaking bands and met and played with so many amazing musicians.

His carrier started with Tomorrow, that recorded a psych monster LP. Later he joined forces with The Pretty Things and with them he recorded S.F.Sorrow, that is one of the pinnacle albums in the psychedelia and an early example of conceptual albums. In July 1969, John took the opportunity to record his own album with members of The Deviants (Paul Randolph), The Pretty Things (Wally Allen, John Povey), Tyrannosaurus Rex (Steve Peregrin Took) and Tomorrow (John "Junior" Wood). WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT...? John "Twink" Alder - The drummer/sonic explorer details his work with the Pretty Things, Syd Barrett, and a bevy of... - Modern Drummer : MD. A key proponent of the British psychedelic rock and early punk movements, drummer John Alder, aka Twink, has performed and recorded with some of rock's most pivotal figures, including Pink Floyd cofounder Syd Barrett, counterculture iconoclast Mick Farren (the Deviants), and the Pretty Things.

He also worked with a number of rock icons before they came to fame, including guitarist Steve Howe, in his pre-Yes band Tomorrow, and the group Santa Barbara Machine Head, featuring future Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood and Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord. Taking his nickname from a hair-care product, Alder seemed to embody the ideals of psychedelic-era Britain through his experimentation, free thought, and artistic playfulness. "Twink is like a traveling circus," says Mark Wirtz, who produced Tomorrow's debut record and the studio project the Aquarian Age, featuring Twink, piano man Nicky Hopkins, drummer Clem Cattini, and Tomorrow bassist John "Junior" Wood.
