Former Hawkwind star Huw Lloyd Langton has lost his battle with cancer, aged 61.

The guitarist, who played on the group's debut album in 1970 and became a fixed member throughout the 1980s, passed away on Thursday (06Dec12).

Paying tribute to the rocker in a post on the group's website, his bandmates state: "Huw had been bravely fighting cancer for a couple of years, but was determined not to let the battle affect his day to day life.

"He continued to play his guitar, laugh, joke and share the great love he had in his heart, with all who knew him... Huw was one of the great guitarists with an individual style and character. He is gone but never forgotten by any of us. He will live on in our music and in our hearts."

Lloyd Langton was also a member of rock acts Widowmaker and the Lloyd Langton Group.
