Mott the Hoople: All the Young Dudes
View on YouTube
As I am in Shrewsbury, it seems right to choose Ian Hunter, the town's greatest gift to rock, for my Sunday music video.
Here is Ian Hunter fronting Mott the Hoople on a song kindly given to them by David Bowie.
Legend has it that Mott the Hoople were the only band Queen ever supported.
And the name? It is taken from an otherwise forgotten 1966 novel by Willard Manus.
