Not so famous but historic 70's british rockers - Mott the Hoople
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 09:32 AM by DaveTheWave


Many people have heard "All the Young Dudes" but have no idea who the band was that made it a hit. Two of the original members like Mick Ralphs who later played with Bad Company and Ian Hunter who had a fantastic although under-appreciated solo career might be better known to some.

For a good bio see:

On edit: The site appears to be a little slow. It's a good link and if interested, try again later.

2. Mott the Hoople and the game of Life
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Cleveland Rocks(more people probably know it from Drew carey's show) and All the Way from Memphis are other favorites.
