    •  I like Mott the Hoople - they made several strong (4+ / 0-)

      albums, but lack of success pulled them apart (they lost a fine guitarist to Bad Company). All the Young Dudes is one of Bowie's best songs: "Oh man, I need TV, but I've got T. Rex"; "Is that concrete all around, or is it in my head?"

      I didn't know that about Rossetti. He has a sweet style, which I believe was much imitated.
