Show Notes: 

Hawkwind founder member Dave Brock's longtime friend, Eric Clapton, joined the band on stage for nearly an hour on November 25 at Guildford G Live during the band's 50th Anniversary Tour of the U.K.

Eric's friendship with Dave dates back to their teenage years in Surrey. Back in 1962, the blues enthusiasts performed as a guitar duo in the folk pubs, clubs and coffeehouses around the county. In 2018, Dave revealed to Uncut magazine that he even used to go round to Eric's house to listen to records.

Eric stepped out for "The Watcher" in the final third of the main set. He played on the track on Hawkwind's 2018 album, Road To Utopia.  He then remained on stage for four more songs - "Silver Machine," Assault and Battery, The Golden Void, and Right To Decide - and joined the band for their three song encore.

For the main set, Eric played his Almond Green Signature Stratocaster through a Bandmaster amp. For the encore, he switched to his dark blue Strat.
