This year has got off to a bad start with the death of Pete Overend Watts the bassist from Mott The Hoople.
Mott The Hoople were one of the first bands whose albums I started buying in the seventies as I grew up a fan of what was then known as "Prog Rock". They didn't hit the big time until David Bowie penned All The Young Dudes for the nad and they sort of became part of the "Glam Rock" scene for a while.
RIP Pete and thanks for all the great music.
Here's a track from their 1970 album Mad Shadows.
