Default Re: The death of Rock n Roll?

Never was a fan of the band or the name....terrible name. Should also be expurgated. Although I'm not privy to English meanings, i never did take that as an actionable phrase....I think Mott is a person and hoople is a descriptive term for his avolition.....so, in terms of your reference I would call it an abject fail..

But keep trying....im sure we will find a popular band name from the classic rock annals that describes the act of painful fornication or the act of taking a large earth roving beast and containing it.

Now, Ian Hunter on his own....that's a different story....he and mick ronson....cleveland rocks baby!
