I vote Mott in, but that is only my opinion. I saw them and the Uris Theatre in NY and saw one of the greatest live shows in my life. It certainly helped that Queen opened for them. Mott the Hoople rocks.

As a side bar; while brousing through the AMG site, I could not help but notice how many bands name Mott as an influence.

Since Ian Hunter does not have a page - I will post this youtube clip here.

I guess it would help if I actually attached the link. Duh!!!!!!!!!

Will Mott ever be inducted? No. Should they be inducted? Absolutely. The Clash always sighted them as a huge influence. (Amoung many others.)

Here - here! Anyone who digs Mott is good in my book!

Mott the Hoople were one of the best of the glam rock acts. Sadly in America they are mainly known as the "All the Young Dudes" band, but they have been covered by Ozzy Osbourne, Great White, Red Hot Chili Peppers(live), Bruce Dickinson, and Brain May just to name a few. Yes, they deserve induction.

Easily my favourite British band of all time. This band had it all including one of the best rock lyricists ever. Unfortunately they didn't make a big enough dent in the US, so induction, although well deserved, is probably unlikely.

Aerosmith and Queen opened for them, and they certainly had some influence. I'm not completely sure whether they should be inducted, but I wouldn't be at all upset if they were.

Of course Mott The Hoople should be inducted.......one of the greatest thinking man's/woman's rock bands of all time....

Ian Hunter should be listed as a nominee for his solo work ... better odds of getting in than his old band.

I think after T. Rex, Mott the Hoople should be the next in line for Glam Rock.

It is a crime that Mott The Hoople never achieved superstar status in the United States. Anyone who has listened to their live album knows that this band kicks ass!
