Just put "Like an arrow" on. Thought I'd pay a visit to this site. Brought back memories of seeing Huw many times in the '80s both with Hawkwind & LLG.
Great site. Keep the candle burnig.

1 year on
1 year on and Huw's memory remains strong in our hearts. A really genuine bloke who had time for everyone. Think about our conversations every time I hear your music.
Love to Marion and Kirsty

Huw LL - lives on in the music.
Was just going through my record collection and thought I would find out how things are round and about on the net. Discovered Huw LL has gone - on youtube!
Always will remember Huw LL outside Bristol Colston Hall red and white stripped top Hawkwind Chronicles tour. His solo guitar sessions unmistakable sound defintive vocals and part of Hawkwind legend, big part of my formative teens and will be sadly missed.

I first met Huw in 1983 when I saw him play one night in a pub I now cant remember! - he had a white Gibson guitar and his first song was 'waiting for tomorrow' and his music blew me away. Huw inspired me to play guitars. He was a fantastic musician. He was such a genuine nice guy and we often had a Gold Label together in the years that followed. I am going to miss Huw and his music so much.........

Gutted that we'll never be able to talk to each other again, but your voice will always be in our home, as will your pictures.
Thanks for all the good times.

simply the best
personnal tribute to your partnership together.
The first I ever heard of Huw was on Hawkwind's choose your masques tour,me Gill and a couple of friends went to the hammersmith Odeon tripping of cours,as hawkwind have allways made an effort to captivate visually as well as their innovative style of music.I had lost track of hawkwind between warriors of the edge of time and choose your masques therefore not heard of huw rejoining during that period.
But that night at that concert I had what they call a life changing moment musicaly.Till then i had a few favorite guitarists whom I would not tire listening to.When huw's gut renching,émotionnaly charged,soul oppening, melodic licks pierced through that night, i was hooked.
I imediateley splashed out all huw back catalogue of music available,feeding a musical need at the time.Little did I know that fate would have it that we would be friends one day.
Meanwhile huw's style of playing started to creep into my own developing style,not that anybody would notice as there were other influances allready there.
To me huw 's guitaring was unique and have not been impressed by anybody since .I had reached my musical Mecca.
Our first contact:Back in 84 I was rehearsing in a new rehaersal place called Accorn studios with a band a the time called savage cabbage ,the owner informed me that Huw Lloyd langton rehearses here with the Lloyd langton group I was dumbfounded it was like an elvis fan going to gracelands
best off all he gives guitare lessons,I could not containe my joy.A few mumbling with nerves phone calls and my fisrt guitare lesson was booked.
I turned up at his home in W2 on my motorbike guitare on back trembling like an *** I was about to meet God.
I was greeted by a down to earth,gentle,warm person with a perminent cheeky smile.
He proceeded to teach me 4 blues scales it was going in one ear and out the other,I was pinching myself ,was I really here with this bloke who played the melodies i was allways searching for.At the same time I met Marion and that's where I saw devotion in its biggest forme a perfect match Marion did everything for Huw she saw his musical gift and braved the biggest obsticals to get huw heard .You took the pressure of him so he could play to his full potencial and share that magique with the reste of us. You were his rock through thick and thin in sickness and in health.During the nineties we kept in touche and will remember with great fondness comming back from the reading festival with kirsty asleep in the back of my old combi camper,stoping to help alan davy
brocken down with a vauxhall chevette if memorie serves me right.Then in 2001 we moved to France, after settling you had the same French dream and I tried to find you somme property 's bargains with potencial,unfortunately french adminstration put stop to all
propositions.I was gutted maybe for selfiche musical reasons but mainly on a personnal level that I failed to make something good happen for people that I hold dearly.And even now i think if things would have gone smoothly with you here would huw have benifited from better dianogstique and treatment .these are questions that I dont know the answers.On your last visite our son Aston was privilidged to have had a jam with huw and I know in years to comme he will remember what a privilege it was.
Huw's tunes and cheeky smile,generosity, humour,will stay with me forever.
I hope our next meeting will be not too far in the futur and we are thinking of you.
