Ian Hunter Remembers Marc Bolan

Ian Hunter without a doubt is one of my long time rock ‘n roll favorites, right up there with Lennon & Bolan. He has a kick ass website and one of the best features on it is a section called The Horse’s Mouth where folks like you and I can email Ian Hunter and read his responses. Pretty cool stuff and quite insightful for fans of Hunter, Mott The Hoople and Mick Ronson.

 

Back in 2003 just prior to the 26th anniversary of Bolan’s untimely demise I emailed The Horse’s Mouth to inquire if Ian Hunter had met and/or had any special memories of Marc Bolan. Ian Hunter replied thusly in the September 19, 2003 installment:

 

“He came into Air II once around the time of my first solo album. Never short of regal confidence he asked to be played something. We played him something and he turned to me quite somberly and said, ‘I must admit something Ian – I’ve always underestimated you.’ The song was ‘Once Bitten, Twice Shy’. That’s the only time we ever spoke.”
