Born 1950, Oxford (England) Simon King is best known as one of Hawkwind's longest serving drummers, having provided drums for their best known releases ("Silver Machine", "Doremi, Fasol, Latido", "Space Ritual"), he also contributed to the solo efforts of Robert Calvert and Steve Swindells.
King joined Hawkwind in 1972 to replace Terry Ollis and left due to personal reasons in 1980. By 1982 he auditioned for the position of drummer on Hawkwind's "Choose Your Masques" album but was ultimately rejected. This decision led him to leave the music business completely.
