All The Old Dudes: Happy Birthday, Ian Hunter

Ian Hunter of Mott the Hoople turns 70 today. Here's a video of "All the Young Dudes," with Mick Ronson on guitar and David Bowie (who wrote the song) on sax.

Hunter is a good songwriter in his own right, so I'm including this version of "All the Way to Memphis." Happy birthday, Ian, and thanks for so many good records — even the recent ones.
