    The name Mott the Hoople comes from the Willard Manus novel ‘Mott the Hoople'
    ‘Mad Shadows' and ‘Wildlife' sold terribly, and got a lot of bad reviews.
    They turned down the David Bowie song, ‘Suffrage City,' which Bowie had offered for Mott the Hoople to record, instead of him.
    Their drummer went by the pretentious single name, Buffin.
    ‘All the Young Dudes' became a gay anthem, and is considered the first big hit in glam rock.
    They talk down on The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in ‘All the Young Dudes.'
    They don't get too much radio airplay today.
    David Bowie was a fan of theirs, and wrote their biggest hit, ‘All the Young Dudes.'
    They have a cult following.
    Although they get little radio play, Alice Cooper is a big fan and plays their stuff frequently on his radio show.
    Queen gained a lot of attention by touring with them. The two bands became good friends, and Ian Hunter, Mick Ronson, and David Bowie performed ‘All the Young Dudes' at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert (1992).
    R.E.M. mentions them in the song 'Man on the Moon.'
