Speechless

You probably haven’t devoted much thought to the fate of Mott the Hoople after the tide of glam rock went out. Well, like a lot of groups that became famous on the crest of a trending fad, they broke up. The good news is, Ian Hunter went on to a pretty respectable solo career. He didn’t claim the kind of serious-cultural-figure glory as some of the other glam rock leaders after hanging up their spandex; on other hand, though, he hasn’t disgraced himself and his solo records have been consistently good. Hunter carried on making rock music that sounds like it should be performed in platform boots, minus the platform boots.
