Turner joined Hawkwind in their formative days back in 1969, playing saxophone and flute for the London-based space rock legends across two stints with the band, first from 1969-1976 and once again from 1982-1984. Turner also wrote and co-wrote some of Hawkwind's most enduring songs from their early years, including hallmark Hawkwind composition "Master of the Universe", released on 1971 album In Search Of Space, and Brainstorm, the opening track from 1972's Doremi Fasol Latido album.

Turner was an incredibly influential member of the music community. He co-founded seminal space rock band Hawkwind with Dave Brock in 1969 and went on to write and/or co-write some the bands biggest hits including "Master of the Universe." After leaving Hawkwind, he formed Inner City Unit, a band that merged Hawkwind's spaciness with new wave and punk. In the 90s and 2000s, he completed many collaborations, including works with Jello Biafra, Genesis P-orridge of Psychic Tv, Helios Creed of Chrome, and Nicky Garrett of Uk Subs.

Hawkwind-Mitbegründer gestorben

Turner war 1969 eines des Gründungsmitglieder der Band, die als Pionier des sogenannten Space Rock, einer psychedelischen Spielart des Hard Rock, gilt. Der größte kommerzielle Erfolg der Gruppe war die Top-10-Single "Silver Machine" von 1972. Mehrere Alben der Band konnten sich in den Top 50 der englischen Albumcharts platzieren. Eines der bekanntesten Bandmitglieder war der spätere Motörhead-Frontmann Lemmy Kilmister, der von 1972 bis 1975 Bassist von Hawkwind war. Motörhead würdigte Turner auf seiner Twitter-Seite.
