The Ballad of Mott the Hoople, a documentary about the great glam rock band best known for its hits “All The Young Dudes” and “All The Way To Memphis” will see release on November 15. New interviews with Mott frontman Ian Hunter and band members Ariel Bender, Mick Ralphs, and Dale “Buffin” Griffin, as well as additional commentary from Mick Jones of the Clash and Roger Taylor of Queen make this a must see, but it’s the rare and previously unseen archival footage of the band, as well as exclusive video of Mott’s celebrated 2009 reunion show, that truly convey the glorious power of this classic British group.

Here’s a trailer of the film.

    Hi there,

    I was going to see one of Mott The Hoople’s reunion gigs in Rocktober 2009. Shared a room with two of my US facebook friends. Being hadicaped ( really bad seeing after a stroke)I had to be there. Thanks to anybody (Berlin Air, Mr. Jan Reeves, Tony, Kelly …) who helped me doing that journey to be in London, Hammersmith Odeon, in Rocktober 2009. Thanks to all members of Mott The Hoople to say thanks for the years being a great audience. Tears in my eyes hearing Ian’s: Good bye, Good bye again.
    Hope this film and documentary will help others how to handle their audience and not only do split and piss off!
    Can’t wait for this release!!

    Kind Regards

    Manfred Koehler (Germany)
