The voice of Mott the Hoople
Ian Hunter has been a legend of rock music, first as the frontman of Mott the Hoople, then with a fabulous solo career in the 1970s and beyond. But, as always, while proud of his past achievements, Ian would prefer to focus on the future. “To me, music is holy," he asserts, adding that "for the first fifteen years of my life, I had no idea what I was here for. But then Elvis came out and it was, "Oh, that’s what I am here for." Rock 'n' roll got me out and gave me a great life and I don't know what I would have done without it. It's all I know and my identity is all tied up with it." Ian Hunter’s latest studio album, "Fingers Crossed," unveils ten new, self-penned songs including his much-anticipated homage to David Bowie, "Dandy." Recorded at HOBO Studios in New Jersey, the record features his magnificent Rant Band and is the follow-up to 2012’s acclaimed "When I’m President."
