 Yesterday was the 83rd – yes, 83rd – birthday of Mott the Hoople lead singer Ian Hunter. I'm a day late but this is surely the perfect occasion to roll out the Mott's greatest belter, with brilliant video accompaniment. If this doesn't do it for you, you might be wise to check with your doctor that you're not clinically dead –


  1. I saw Ian Hunter perform about 4 years ago. He was great.

  2. I had the good luck to see Hunter perform only 4 or 5 years ago in Southsea. He was great. Did all the Mott classics. My favourite: Roll Away the Stone. I think Nick from the Salon has a tale about meeting Ariel Bander in a pub.
