5.0 out of 5 stars The best music documentary I've ever seen, 26 Aug 2012
This review is from: Mott The Hoople The Ballad Of Mott The Hoople [DVD] [NTSC] [2011] (DVD)
This is so obviously a labour of love for the makers, they've poured their hearts and souls into this and it shows. I knew it was going to be an interesting film, but I was literally transfixed for it's entire running time, listening to members of the band and associates recounting their memories. For my money, the star of the show is Luther Grosvenor (aka Ariel Bender) who tells of his time in the band with affection and great humour(in fact it's nice to hear Ian Hunter saying that Luther brought a sense of fun to the band)and comes across as a fantastic chap. The bands story is told in detail, and is interspersed with some great archival footage, and of course material from the reunion gigs. Even if you've only a passing interest in the band,I guarantee you will enjoy this DVD, and recommend it without hesitation. It's essential viewing for anyone with a penchant for rock music, and as I say in the headline, it's the best music documentary I have ever seen.
