Rocker, balladeer, and author, Ian Hunter has a diamond-studded and matchless repertoire. As leader of ‘70s British rock legends Mott the Hoople - cited as an inspiration to the Clash, REM, Primal Scream, Morrissey, Motley Crue, and Def Leppard and as a hugely influential solo artist, Ian Hunter is widely revered as one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most compelling performers and one of its most articulate songwriters. Ian has penned such classic hits as “All the Way From Memphis,” “Cleveland Rocks,” and “Once Bitten Twice Shy.” As a solo performer he has also succeeded with an impressive catalogue of superb albums and a dedicated following. Ian’s most recent CD, the critically acclaimed, When I’m President, keeps him a priceless figure on the musical landscape.
