I first met Alan when he was in Hawkwind in the USA in 1995 in New Haven Conn, when I did an interview with Richard, Ron Tree, Dave and Alan. I then met Allan again at the Hawkfan gathering in Hamburg where he played with Bedouin. As you know, Alan has made a lot of music with different projects since his days in Hawkwind.
