Mott the Hoople back on stage

Mott the Hoople is back, after 36 years! At least for five nights at the Apollo in London with two sell-out gigs in the rather less well known Blake Theatre in Monmouth on Friday and Saturday.
BBC reports that the line up is: Keyboardist Verden Allen, drummer Dale Griffin, lead singer Ian Hunter, guitarist Mick Ralphs and bassist Pete Overend Watts.

OK, how often does the name Mott the Hoople come up in one day...

I just mentioned to a boy that Green Day's song "21 Guns" sounds just like "All the Young Dudes" by Mott the Hoople. Check it out.

Hi Angel,

Green Day sounding like Mott The Hoople? Will check it out!

[Opening up Spotify. Searching for 21 Guns. Listening...]
