Rock icon Mick Slattery passed away at the age of 77 after a brief illness.

In 1969, the guitarist and Dave Brock established the rock group Hawkwind.

He passed away on Friday, according to the band.

The band is best known for their song Silver Machine, which they recorded at Abbey Road Studios.

In statement Dave said: “We are sorry to share the sad news that our old friend, and Hawkwind founder member, Mick Slattery passed away peacefully at home yesterday, St Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2023, aged 77, after a short illness.

“Me and Mick played together in a band called Famous Cure in 1967, touring Holland before going on to form Hawkwind in 1969.

“I have lots of fond memories from our younger days, playing together in Holland and hanging out in Richmond at the L’Auberge Cafe and Eel Pie Island.

“In the late 60s, we used to rehearse in my upstairs flat in Putney and also in the basement of Bob Kerr’s music shop in Gwalior Road, playing loud music, much to the annoyance of our neighbours.
