"The Ballad of MOTT THE HOOPLE" with Chris Hall
Mott the Hoople was of the most important bands of the late '60s and early ‘70s — the rock act that made a stray Bowie song into an anthem for a generation and beyond, and a singer with recognizable hair and ever-present shades. And Mott The Hoople may be one of the UK’s greatest and most cherished bands, but what of their story?
We speak with Chris Hall, the director of The Ballad of Mott the Hoople, about the feature length documentary that tells the bruised and battered, but triumphant, tale of glam rock ‘n’ rollers Mott The Hoople. The film brings the band's story to life through a stunning combination of rare and unseen archive footage, their magnificent music and the testimony of band members Ian Hunter, Mick Ralphs, and the rest of the crew, plus other associates 'and witnesses, including The Clash's Mick Jones, Queen's Roger Taylor and Mott fanclub president and author Kris Needs.
