All the young dudes (I want to hear you)
Carry the news (I want to see you)
Boogaloo dudes (and I want to talk to you all of you)
Carry the news

– All the Young Dudes,  Mott the Hoople {written by David Bowie}

The band Mott the Hoople are all Gods of Glam in our eyes; and we weren’t the only ones who see that! In fact, the King of the Gods of Glam himself practically initiated them into the cult with this 1972 cult hit penned by the master himself.

Bowie also offered the band “Suffragette City” after learning the band was on the brink of breaking up just at the verge of their success.

They went through several names for themselves including The Doc Thomas Group, The Shakedown Sound, and the Silence – but it was the 1966 novel, Mott the Hoople, by Willard Manus that truly stuck.

We love this jam, and hope you do too!

DON’T GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!

Until next time,
