The John Robb Tapes | Ian Hunter (Mott the Hoople)

The John Robb Tapes unearths the incredible archive of old interviews that music journalist John Robb has amassed over the years, along with more recent conversations with contemporary bands, acts and figures. Ian Hunter is arguably one of the greatest British songwriters; the former front man of Mott the Hoople has maintained a 40 year solo career of great songs and incredible lyrics. In this interview, he details his life, growing up in the Midlands and the backwater towns where all the genius lurks; his days fronting Mott the Hoople; his relationship with David Bowie, his 40 year old solo career and his idiosyncratic take on songwriting.
