Don't want to enter into the Turner-Brock debate fully - would take ages and lots of bad feelings involved. But it has to be said that Nik Turner is at least as much an egomaniac as Brock and leads a sad spitting image of Hawkwind karaoke these days, whereas Brock's new Hawkwind incarnation at least tries to get things together.
By the way - Brock has fallen out with Moorcock, which the latter much regrets. Watch the bbc Hawkwind documentary where Moorcock regrets siding with Turner at first, "which cost me Dave's friendship".

The "real Hawkwind" - whether in the 70s or the 90s - got its magic and power from the combined energy of quite strong characters - personal and musical - and I consider it a waste of time to compare the splinter groups and spin-offs. And then lets have Lemmy the last word: "Hawkwind is really Dave's band like Motorhead is mine".
