Ian Hunter at the World Cafe Live


Former Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter plays the World Cafe Live tonight. Still with that mop of blond hair at age 73, Hunter is the guy who wrote "All The Way From Memphis" and "Cleveland Rocks" and sang David Bowie's "All The Young Dudes."

Remarkably, he's been working at a level in recent years that measures up quite respectably with his classic glam-slash-pub rock glory days with Mott and as a solo artist with albums like 1979's You're Never Alone With A Schizophrenic and the 1981 Mick Jones (of the Clash) production Short Back n' Sides. The latest example of Hunter's continued excellence is the brand new When I'm President, credited to Ian Hunter & the Rant Band, which came out last week. The title track and a 2007 Hunter interview with Craig Ferguson are below. Show details here.
