> Mike Moorcock has always been an inspiration, but Bob is more of a direct contributor and the Space Opera, (The Space Ritual) which is really a ritual was his idea.

It's almost a religious ceremony - some of our gigs have that kind of atmosphere. (...)

The space thing started with Bob Calvert who we've known for a long while.

Bob was editing a science fiction magazine in the early days and worked in close conjunction with the guy who designed our albums and because I was really interested in it he helped produce the concept for In Search of Space (Hawkwind's 2nd album). <
