Summary
"As the face and voice of Mott the Hoople and an inspirational solo artist, Ian Hunter has created incredible rock music that continues to influence groups, writers and musicians today. Fulled by his Fiftites rock 'n' roll idols, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard, and the poetic writing and vocal style of Bob Dylan, Ian hones his musicality in various bands playing in Britain and Germany. After a decade of desire and determination, Hunter had served a tough apprenticeship and he made his breakthrough in 1969, joining Herfordshire band Silence and Island Records. Mentored and re-named Mott the Hoople by manic A&R man Guy Stevens, Ian became the band's distinguishing asset via his songs, his image and his attitude. Echoing Ian's acclaimed book, Diary of a Rock 'n' Roll Star, this fully authorised biography shines a penetrating light on the highs and lows of stardom and the music-business lifestyle."--From dust jacket
