If you’re a true fan, you know that the iconic rock band recorded some of their best tracks at Abbey Road Studios, but they’re probably most well-known for their killer song “Silver Machine.” Mick and Dave, another founder, played together in a band called Famous Cure before they decided to team up and change the rock scene forever with Hawkwind in 1969.
