Hawkwind Vs Former Member Over Band Name
The news came a day after Dave Brock, the only remaining founding member of the space-rock outfit, was given the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's Prog Awards.
Turner launched his application via the United States Patent and Trademark Office in November last year, asking for exclusive rights to use the title for "entertainment services, namely, musical performance by an individual or by a musical group."
The band believed Turner – who was part of the lineup from 1969 to 1976 then again from 1982 until 1984 – had stopped pursuing the application, but more paperwork was filed earlier this month.
Now they fear they're facing more issues.
