This band is one of my five absolute favorite artists, along with LZ, Neil Young, Todd Rundgren, and Van Morrison. But anyway, they are an absolutely awesome band , yet are about as obscure as Rundgren . So , are there any other Mott fans out here in TB land? Matter of fact, i had the words to "Ballad of Mott" tatooed on my back in small arabic styled script, when i was 19 . So come on , any others out here??
