Former Hawkwind guitarist Huw Lloyd Langton died yesterday (6th December 2012) at the aged of 61 and following a two-year battle with cancer. Hawkwind posted the following:
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.
As he wished, he was at home when the time came, with his ever strong and loving wife Marion at his side.
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.
