Ian Hunter's fifty-year-long career and extensive repertoire of percipient, creative songs have earned him a reputation as a true rock phenomenon.

This first part of a two-volume, authorised biography charts Ian's unique musical journey from his formative rock 'n' roll years to his commercial success as the face and voice of legendary Seventies British band, Mott the Hoople. Featuring insider accounts of the group's roller coaster ride and international triumphs via classic records including `All the Young Dudes', `Roll Away the Stone' and MOTT, this captivating book exposes personal trials and tribulations, the bizarre aspects of the rock business and the absurdity of music-related fame.

Based on interviews with Hunter, all his Hoople band mates and an impressive cast of supporting characters, Rock 'n' Roll Sweepstakes: Mott's the Story is a fascinating, frank biography of a highly influential band and a special music icon.
