Actually, I think it is their biggest hit, but at least it was custom made for them.

http://ultimateclassicrock.com/mott-the-hoople-songs/
The story goes that after David Bowie — finally a breakout star thanks to ‘Hunky Dory’ — found out that Mott the Hoople — a struggling boogie-blues band — were about ready to break up, he offered to produce their next record. He even gave them one of his new songs, ‘Suffragette City,’ which they didn’t want. Bowie saved the song for his next album, ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars,’ and wrote a new song especially for the band, on the spot, with the group’s frontman Ian Hunter sitting close by. The song, ‘All the Young Dudes,’ transformed the cult band into glam-rock heroes overnight, and Hunter — previously a snarling singer with a Bob Dylan obsession — into a stardust-sprinkled spokesman for a group of platform-wearing glitter kids.


Obviously these dying musicians can't bear to live in this Bowie-less world. I think we can expect more.

Jim's got a big target on his back now. Let's hope he can dodge fate. By my calculations he's in the most danger for the next 2 years and 2.5 months. If he can make it through that period alive, and without suffering a major illness, his odds of imminent death should go down.

OMG...another one

Gary Loizzo- 70



http://kwbe.com/abc_classicr/american-b ... d35587720/

Gary Loizzo, the lead singer of the 1960s pop-rock band The American Breed died Saturday, January 16, at the age of 70. According to a obituary posted by the Illinois funeral home where a serves was being held for him, the cause of death was pancreatic cancer, which Loizzo battled for three years.

The American Breed scored its biggest hit in 1967 with “Bend Me, Shape Me,” which peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Chicago-area band also broke into the top 40 with “Step out of Your Mind” in 1967 and “The Green Light” in 1968. The group split up in 1969, and in the early ’70s, Loizzo opened the Pumpkin Studios recording facility in Orlando Park, Illinois.

Through the studio, he established a long relationship with Styx, serving as an engineer on most of the albums the band recorded from the late ’70s until the present day. He also worked on many of former Styx singer keyboardist Dennis DeYoung’s solo albums

After the band broke up,Dale Griffin got into producing.

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35342699

Griffin, Watts and Fisher continued to play and record under the name Mott, but split up two years later.
During the 80s, Griffin and Watts formed a production company and produced albums for Hanoi Rocks and The Cult. Griffin then joined the BBC and produced many of John Peel's Radio 1 sessions from 1981 to 1994, including Pulp, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark.

It's only going to speed up from here, for the 20th century / baby boom. The youngest boomers are inching closer to 70, so even the healthy ones are getting to the point where the probability of death is 100%. It sucks, but we need a change. Tired of those old land-owning secure-job / pension-having bastards ruining everything for the rest of us. :lol:

Jimmy Bain- 68

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/former ... ead-at-68/

The Scottish bass player, known for his work with Rainbow and DIO, has reportedly passed away.

According to multiple sources, Jimmy Bain has died aged 68.

Bain was recruited by Ritchie Blackmore to join Rainbow and played bass on their legendary "Rising" album, as well as live album "On Stage". He was fired from the band in 1977.

The following year, he formed Wild Horses with former Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson, releasing two albums in the early 1980s. Bain then went on to co-write music with his friend Phil Lynott for his two solo albums.

1983 saw Bain join DIO, co-writing many of their hits including "Rainbow in the Dark" and "Holy Diver" during a very successful tenure with the band.

In recent times Jimmy Bain was a member of Last In Line, alongside Vivian Campbell, Vinny Appice and Andrew Freeman. The band performed on Def Leppard's cruise just last week.

The full details surrounding Bain's death are not yet known.

Watch his death be related to some sort of norovirus from the cruise ship.

I prefer Big Lizard In My Backyard over Beelzebubba. Stuart and Punk Rock Girl are great songs, but there's so much great stuff on Big Lizard. The title track, Bitchen Camaro, Tiny Town and Taking Retards To The Zoo are standouts.
