Ian Hunter Ra(n)ted

Ian's eighty years old! And as he once sang, "'n you gotta stay young man and can never be old," this list attests to Ian's "fountain of youth" journey through rock 'n' roll, as his latest album, Fingers Crossed, is equal to his classic first solo album. Let's face it: He always told "the truth, the whole truth and nuthin' but the truth." Hunter's songs contain the poetry of Dylan, the swagger of The Stones, and the majestic drama of Procol Harum. From his Mott days through this solo stuff, Ian Hunter is proof positive "that rock and roll burned," and will always do so with Jerry Lee's "great balls of fire."

Saw him recently on the Rock Hall of Fame Induction show. Still looked and sounded pretty good for 80!

Perfectly timed birthday present. Good on ya, although Schizo and the "haircut" albums are my faves. And the live album is one of the best by any artist.

Thanks for the comment. Yeah they are all great, "Haircut" is brilliantly weird after the somewhat commercial Schizo, with that amazing second side that echoes the strange heady stuff on Mad Shadows. I really like Dirty Laundry. I love Artful...

Thanks for the comment. Yeah they are all great, "Haircut" is brilliantly weird after the somewhat commercial Schizo, with that amazing second side that echoes the strange heady stuff on Mad Shadows. I really like Dirty Laundry. I love Artful Dodger. And his new Fingers Crossed is as great as anything he has ever done. But again, thanks for the comment.
