Alan Davey, a.k.a. “Bass Assassin #2, nickname given to Alan Davey by Lemmy Kilmister, is best known for being one of the keynote, and longtime members of the legendary band Hawkwind, but he began his musical career in 1979 with a band he and his cousin started from the ground up, called Gunslinger. They quickly gained a reputation for playing loud and built a solid following.

In 1984, Dave Brock of Hawkwind was impressed enough by Alan Davey’s bass playing to not only invite him to join Hawkwind, but to take Harvey Bainbridge from bass and move him onto keyboards in order to accommodate Alan Davey. Davey leaved Hawkwind in 1996 because he wanted other challenge as a solo artist.  It was a Middle-Eastern tinged, loud rock band called Bedouin. The track Do What You Need To Do,

Om Ulf Backstrøm (2755 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
