I knew Huw personally from 1985-95 & was deeply saddened to hear he had recently passed away. He had pure talent & I saw him play live on many occasions. He was a very good friend to me & a really nice bloke with a kind heart. I am truly honoured to have known him in my life. RIP Huw, My friend.

Hawkwind were the first band I saw in 1981. After one gig, I waited at the back of the Colston Hall and was lucky enough to meet the band backstage. NikTurner was eccentric, while Huw and the rest of the band were down to earth. Huw posed for a photo. Following year I saw the band on the 'Chonicles' tour in 1985 at the Hippodome Bristol. Had a chat with Huw and he signed the photo (I took of him the previous year) after he made a negative remark of how he looked in the photo! I have treasured that photo along with the memories and always will. A big influence upon my mid teenage years. Huw was one of the top guitarists and songwriters that I have ever come across. And I was fortunate enough to have seen him perform many times. I hope God is looking after you, Huw, and that you are showing him a few chords. I will see and hear you play again when it's my turn. God Bless you. And God Bless your family and friends. Ray

Over the years we get used to people we know, people we loved, family who leave us. Huw is one was one of those people who i felt was all of those. I am so sad, but feel fortunate to have had so much pleasure brought into my life by Huw and his guitar. I saw him many times in Hawkwind over the years and I also covered the length of our fair Isle from Porthcawl to Scarborough to be entertained by Huw on his own or LLG. Many, many happy memories, but the one that stands out out most was a Friday night at I think the Half Moon in Putney [1988-90?]. An innocent yellow belly [lincolnshire born] travelled alone into the big smoke after college, I got there early, Huw was doing his sound check. Only the sound engineer and I enjoyed this moment. Huw left the stage, i plucked up courage and asked for his autograph, which i still cherish. 'Fancy a game of pool' he said, pinch me, is this true, one of my heroes wants to play pool with me. We chatted, we played as disbelieving punters arrived to watch Huw and I was playing pool with him in the bar. 'Please watch my drink' as he went to the bog, little at that time did i realise the significance of being trusted to watch his drink. I will always remember that night and many more. Thank you Huw, you helped to make me into the person I am today

Today I had the sad task of registering the death of Huw Lloyd-Langton. Although under very sad circumstances, it was an honour to meet Huw's wife, Marion plus the two friends who attended with her. I told them I would come home and check out Huw's albums on Amazon - which I have done and have just preordered the "Rare and Unreleased Anthology 1971-2012". I didn't know Huw and never followed his music but I do know of Hawkwind and can now appreciate Huw's association with the band, plus the many other successes he had in his long-spanning career. I could become Huw's biggest posthumous fan, if such a fan can exist?! My deepest condolences extend to Marion, her family and friends. I hope Huw's funeral next week is a fitting send-off for a man who was clearly an extremely skilled and talented musician but as well as that, I strongly suspect he was a very humble and understated man too, based on chatting with Marion this morning and from what I have read about Huw since then. RIP Huw Lloyd-Langton. May the legacy of your musical accomplishments keep your memory alive for a very long time to come.

A Sad Loss
Very sad to hear of the passing of Huw Lloyd Langton. Saw him for the first time in 1987 (it was a bad time and a friend dragged me along) and it was a fantastic evening.
A great player, and you could sense, a lovely man who throughly enjoyed his craft and presenting it to people. I saw him many times after that and he always gave a 100%. RIP HLL.

So long buddy
How sad that my only post on here is to say goodbye. I've loved the music, we all have. I enjoyed many pre and post gig chats etc... Learned so much from watching you and listening intently to every note, so perfectly played, well most of 'em eh?
I guess the great gig in the sky gets another fantastic player in the orchestra, and you will be gladly received Huw. We will miss you... so very much...

Hero, legend and gentleman. I've grown up with your music, been influenced by it and transported to better places because of it. Rest in peace Huw. Deepest sympathy and condolences to Marion and all who loved you. You will be forever missed, never forgotten X
