'Ballad Of Mott The Hoople' forthcoming
Click To View the Fullsize Image/sA new trailer has emerged from the forthcoming documentary film 'The Ballad Of Mott The Hoople'.
Mott The Hoople didn't quite fit in anywhere. Too early for punk, the band were too tough for Glam and too poppy for Prog. Never quite achieving mainstream success, the group nonetheless left a deep and lasting impact on anyone who crossed their path.
Mick Jones of The Clash used to bunk off school to follow them around the country. Morrissey idolised the group, while David Bowie was moved to write them their biggest hit - the ode to teenage abandon that is 'All The Young Dudes'.
The band's story is set to be captured in the forthcoming film 'The Ballad Of Mott The Hoople'. Containing exclusive concert footage and interviews, the film will be released on DVD on October 10th.
A trailer for the DVD has emerged - watch it below...

Featuring interviews with the original members of Mott The Hoople - including reclusive singer Ian Hunter - 'The Ballad Of Mott The Hoople' comes complete with sleevenotes written by Morrissey.
A devoted fan of the group, the singer penned the following evocative phrase: “Savage history always passes judgment in due course, and here we are, in 2011, still studying Mott The Hoople.”
