Ian Hunter occupies a unique place in the pantheon of classic rock music, both as a solo artist and as the focal point of ’70s legends, Mott the Hoople. Oozing style, attitude and unpredictability, over their five-year reign, Mott recorded several eclectic albums and classic songs including the iconic “All the Young Dudes.” Guardian of lyricism, honesty and killer hooks, Hunter bravely quit Mott in 1974 and has released over twenty solo albums. He is respected as one of rock’s most distinctive artists and there have been countless cover versions of his songs by the likes of Def Leppard, The Monkees, and Status Quo. Known for his high-profile collaborations, Hunter continues this tradition on his new album, Defiance Part 1. Backed by fellow legends Ringo Starr and Johnny Depp, Hunter rocks on all original tracks like “This Is What I’m Here For,” and “Bed of Roses.” 180g vinyl LP with a printed inner sleeve from Ian personally thanking all the contributors.
