Ian Hunter

by

Sad to say, ol’ Ian decided not to export the Mott the Hoople reunion Stateside, leaving us raging with jealousy over the Blighty crowds who witnessed it last fall. Still, we should be grateful that Hunter is keeping up on road dates, sharing not just solo faves but also sprinkling in some Mott classics. And how can you not raise a lighter when the guy does “All the Young Dudes” or bounce with joy to the opening piano chords of “All the Way from Memphis”?
