Nik Turner

Nik Turner is perhaps best known as the founding saxophone and flute player for pioneering “space rock” band Hawkwind. As well as contributing to the profound influence that this band has had on rock and punk with its focus on community and grassroots movements -- including its many benefit shows and long-standing support of England's free festivals, Turner may also be the first saxophonist to effectively bring free jazz to rock music. Independent of his work with Hawkwind, Turner has an extensive performance history with his own bands such as Sphynx, Inner City Unit, and Space Ritual, and has perfomed and recorded with such artists as Farflung, the Stranglers, and Sting.
