Spotlight on the 70s!

Turning the spotlight on Mott the Hoople!

Mott The Hoople, who took their name from a 1966 book by Willard Manus, started making an impact on the UK music scene in the late 60s, before hitting the bigtime (thanks partly to the help of David Bowie) across the globe in the early 70s with a number of glam-rock classic hit singles.

Formed in sleepy Herefordshire in rural England, the band must have felt a million miles from home when they found themselves touring the world, and needless to say, they managed to get themselves into a few scrapes!

UK Talk Radio’s Joe Legg has a great MusicPod feature on Mott the Hoole. Listen below.
