Ian Hunter Biography - From Mott the Hoople Stardom to Solo Success
After learning to play the bass guitar as a teenager, this Shropshire singer began his musical career entering a talent completion at a Butlins holiday camp. He performed the track 'Blue Moon' as part of a 'skiffle group' - even though his father did not approve of his artistic sensibilities. He performed in various bands throughout the 1960s including The Apex, Hurricane Henry and the Shriekers and The New Yardbirds (in between working various jobs including a stint as a journalist and road digger). He joined the band Silence in 1966 and renamed the group Mott the Hoople after a novel by Willard Manus. Hunter distinguished himself as a frontman with his trademark sunglasses and fuzzy mane of hair, building huge success as a live act across the UK. Their glam rock anthem 'All the Young Dudes' written by David Bowie, became a seminal track and entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's '500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll'. The song also paved the way for the bestselling album of the same name.
Hunter went on to enjoy success as a solo artist throughout the 1980s and 1990s, producing a catalogue of albums including You're Never Alone With a Schizophrenic (1979) and The Artful Dodger (1996).
