    I saw them at the Uris Theatre in NYC back in ‘74. They were the ‘first’ rock band to play on Broadway. Well, really Queen was the first to play on Broadway since they opened for Mott. Many years later I learned that Ian Hunter was living in the same town as me in Litchfield County, CT. I ran into him a couple of times but that was well over 25 years ago.

    Cool.
    I started loving Mott long before I ever heard them back when I was 14 or so due to the Hit Parader magazine article by Leee Black Childers way back then.
    I think it's still available online.

    Mick Ralphs from a magazine interview: "I picked up a ’52 Fender Esquire in an L.A. pawn shop, for $100. Somebody had put a Gibson humbucking pickup on it between the Fender pickup and the neck.”
