This, the official biography of Mott The Hoople, traces their formation and their inevitable rise to international stardom. Author Campbell Devine has successfully collaborated with Ian Hunter and members of ‘Mott’ to create a biography devoid of borrowed information and re- cycled press clippings but instead new, sensational and humerous inside stories, controversial quotes and an array of previously unpublished views from the band. With first hand input from members Hunter, Griffin, Watts, Allen and Ralphs this book gives the complete insight into the legend of Mott The Hoople. Queen, The Clash, Kiss, Def Leppard, Primal Scream and Oasis have all cited Mott The Hoople as a major influence.
Queen’s Brian May and Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott have provided their own foreword to pay a long and overdue tribute to a band who were simply one of rock’s most treasured.
Already desribed as the ‘definitive tome’ on their careers, this unique and fascinating biography is by far the most scrupulously researched written work ever produced on Mott The Hoople and is a valuable companion to Sony Music’s new 3CD box set. This book is welcomed by both the committed and casual rock reader aswell as the ageing rocker and of course all the young dudes.
