During the break between Christmas and New Years Eve we couldn't help but feel deep sadness as 28 December marked one year since the passing of Lemmy Kilmister. And whilst he's best remembered for his time in Motörhead, his material with Hawkwind is sublime will never be overlooked.

Hawkwind helped Lemmy hone is skills as a bassist after a brief period being what he called a mediocre guitar player in Sam Gopal Band. Lemmy's stint in Hawkwind started in 1971 and by 1975 he'd already formed Motörhead. He famously said the reason he'd been kicked out of Hawkwind for being into the wrong sort of drugs; he was more into amphetamine whilst Hawkwind were more focused on psychedelics than him.

Bon Iver cancel European tour, don't reschedule yet

  Bon Iver cancel European tour, don't reschedule yet 'Skinny Love' hitmakers Bon Iver have cancelled the UK and European leg of their 22 a million tour, citing 'personal reasons' as the cause. The band led by the breathtaking vocals of Justin Vernon were scheduled to play two gigs at The Roundhouse, two and Eventim Apolo, and one at Britxon Academy. They've also pulled the two dates scheduled at Edinburgh playhouse in addition to the rest of a mammoth European tour. Justin Vernon's scheduled appearance at A Prairie Home Companion on 14 Janaury is also affected. The dates are not planned to be rescheduled "at this time" meaning the best chance of seeing Bon Iver soon is at a festival. They are booked for a bunch, including, Spain's Primavera and Ireland's Forbidden Fruit. It's with great regret that we must announce the cancellation of our forthcoming European tour and Justin's appearance on @prairie_home. . . pic.twitter.com/3nvEEA2i3r — Bon Iver (@boniver) January 4, 2017 This news will come as a blow to fans who were widely appreciative of Bon Iver's return with a new album in 2016 - their first since the award wining self-titled on brought out in 2011. Apart from a one-off show in Brixton in February last year, the band haven't toured Europe since 2012. With the lack of gigs, The festival performances must be cherished. Whilst the tour says the shows won't be rescheduled at this time, we do hope that in a few months time once the band are ready they'll be on the road in Europe soon. They do say in true Arnie style, "We'll be back".

Despite not being a long lasting partnership the results of having Lemmy in this band, who've been going in various incarnations since their formation in the heady days in Ladbroke Grove in 1969, were potent. 'Silver Machine' is easily the biggest hit the band ever had and Lemmy's vocals on it has everything to do with the quality of the classic song.

This year marks 45 years since the legendary "Greasy Truckers Party" at the Roundhouse where Hawkwind recorded their No. 3 single 'Silver Machine'. In honour of this party and of course Lemmy the band are set to play there again.

Below you can see the video of Hawkwind playing 'Silver Machine' on stage and hear how the huge ceilings of the Roundhouse give such effective reverb to all the instruments. This is truly one of the most unconventional and intesely psychdelic songs to ever chart so highly.

The show will happen on 26 May and will be a poignant celebration of one of the greatest songs ever.

Elsewhere, Hawkwind will release their latest album, Into the Woods, which is out on 5th May 2017.
