(...) Like several creative
people I know, Robert was his
own worst enemy and this tended to make you more sympathetic to him. --

Moorcock is one
of THE crucial writers of contemporary Science Fiction and Fantasy / Futuristic
literature - and can be considered as the key-figure in the development
of the New
Wave in Science Fiction literature.
He was also both one of Robert Calvert's oldest friends and a longtime collaborator of Calvert and Hawkwind - sharing at times a similar position with Calvert for the band, as a writer of lyrics / poems-performance pieces and supplying the band with a conceptual / thematical background - though he never got that actively involved in the performance part as Calvert.
Moorcock's longstanding involvement and his numerous collaborations with Robert Calvert and Hawkwind have already been extensively documented on a separate page of the Calvert site - offering also some background on Moorcocks non-Calvert-related literary and musical work - and listing a number of the most interesting other web-spaces on him.
