Remembering Dale Griffin (Mott The Hoople)

More sad news for those of us who grew up in the seventies. Dale Griffin passed away today at the age of just 67. Our thoughts are with his family and friends tonight.

Dale was the drummer in Mott The Hoople, one of the finest bands from the seventies who started of in the world of progressive rock and then joined the "Glam Rock" crowd when they released All The Young Dudes, penned coincidently by David Bowie another star recently passed from us.

Whilst at school I religiously followed this through their changes starting with a second hand copy of their first (untitled) album.

But this was the record that pushed them into the well deserved limelight!

Rest in peace Dale.
