Hawkwind - Dave Brock Picks Up Lifetime Achievement Award

Hawkwind rocker Dave Brock has been honoured for his career with a lifetime achievement award.

The 72-year-old guitarist, who founded the band in 1969, collected his honour at London's annual Progressive Music Awards on Tuesday (03Sep13).

He tells the Bbc, "It's a great honour to receive this award. It's a hard business to be in, with many ups and downs, but I consider music to be an art form. So come on you young pioneers, there is plenty of room for change in our music world."

Other winners at the ceremony included Marillion, who were named band of the year, and Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson, who scooped the Prog God honour. Guitarist Steve Hillage, who has played with Gong and System 7 during his 40-year career, received a 'visionary' award.
