本来一直想发一套Marc Bolan & T Rex全集的，30多张专辑，3G多，整理起来工程浩大，最近实在没有时间，今天想先发个精选好了，搜了一下有人发过了= =|||，只好把伟大的Ian Hunter拖出来替代一下
All The Young Dude大家都知道吧，真正把这首歌最早唱出名的其实是Mott，可惜后来因为Mick Ronson的加入，Ian Hunter把Mott The Hoople解散了（Mick Ronson后来一直给Bowie做吉他手，直到1993年去世），不过Ian Hunter后来的个人作品大部分也是和Mick Ronson合作的
In May 1969, a band from Hereford in the west of England auditioned for Guy Stevens and Island records. He liked them, but not the singer, so he advertised for a singer/pianist. Ian Hunter, who was neither, and who nearly didn't turn up for the audition, got the job. They toured the UK relentlessly, and their explosive stage act soon gained them a live following few bands get. But they couldn't sell albums, and so after four crazed but poor selling albums they split, in March 1972.
Long-time fan David Bowie pursuaded them to reform, offering them All The Young Dudes. Switching to CBS, and with Dudes a hit on both sides of the Atlantic, Mott finally found the success that had eluded them for so long. But the new musical direction didn't rest easily with some band members, and the line-up started to change. Out went Mick Ralphs, in came Ariel Bender. Despite huge live success he was less than inspiring in the studio, and he lasted just one album. In came Mick Ronson, but far from being the band's saviour he proved the catalyst in the band's destruction as finally Ian himself realised he had had enough.
The remnants recruited a new guitarist and a new vocalist, but despite a name change first to Mott, then to British Lions it was never the same, and they finally disbanded for good in 1979.
Ian, meanwhile, has enjoyed a varied and successful solo career, working on and off with Ronson until Mick sadly dies of cancer in 1993. 1997 saw him come back with a vengeance, with a brilliant new album and a string of UK gigs in the spring and autumn. He has continued to tour regularly - another good album in 2001 was followed by live DVDs in 2003 and 2005. The Ian Hunter story is still being written...
