Book review: The Whispering Swarm, Michael
There are too many Michael Moorcocks. I don't mean the books - although there are a bewildering number of those, there could never be too many for his admirers. There are at least 70 novels, and the revisions, retitling and recycling of stories habitual ...

Resolved Question: What Hawkwind songs did
Wiki implies he sang a little bit, in '75 and '81, but there's no list.
Also, let me know what he sang on with associated bands, like Deep Fix, or Bob Calvert's projects.

Resolved Question: Who here likes The Deep
Longtime fantasy/sci fi writer(he wrote a Doctor Who novel, "The Coming of the Terraphiles") Michael Moorcock has written lyrics for Hawkwind, Blue Oyster Cult, and others. Apparently he has also played/sang for Hawkwind/The Deep Fix. Which means he and Lemmy of Motorhead probably hung out. Deep Fix was a fictional band for his character Jerry Cornelius, before he formed a band with the same name.
So what is The Deep Fix like?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Moorcock According to his bio, Moorcock worked as a "blues singer" in clubs in the sixties, played guitar, etc.
