From an acoustic set recorded in August 1971 at Newcastle Mayfair Ballroom with Mott the Hoople. Another fantastic band, but they didn't achieve real success until the following year when they released the David Bowie song All The Young Dudes. It was to be their biggest hit record and launched them into super stardom. This came just in time because the guys were very close to splitting up when we met them.
We like to think they may have taken some encouragement from our song lyrics "Everyone's a star - everybody's somebody's guiding light, no matter who you are". But then again, maybe not.
Everyone's A Star
