Mott would swing relentlessly and unstoppably into their show every night, like a marauding band of outlaws and every night there was something close to a riot – the kids couldn’t get close enough; they simply couldn’t get enough. Ian Hunter – the unwritten boss – would plant himself centre-stage behind his shades and dare anyone to remain seated.’ – Brian May, Queen

 

‘The first time I heard Mott the Hoople was on radio Luxembourg in 1971 when Downtown was on all time. I was transfixed. It was the single of the week and they played it every hour on the hour. It was nothing like anything I had heard before and I was instantly a total fan. After that there was series of events that got me even more into the band. I bought these Island Records compilations that were in the local second-hand record shop and they were on there as well and those songs were brilliant as well. – Joe Elliott, Def Leppard

 

Mott The Hoople were one of the seminal British rock bands of the early 70’s. Undervalued at the time, they have since been cited as major influences by members of Queen, Def Leppard, Oasis, REM, Kiss, Motley Crue and The Clash.
