Mott The Hoople Drummer Griffin Dies Aged 67

Mott The Hoople drummer Griffin dies aged 67 and founding member of the Seventies glam rock group Mott the Hoople, passed away Sunday in his sleep following a long battle with Alzheimer’s. The band’s manager Peter Purnell confirmed Griffin’s death to the BBC, adding that the drummer was “one of the nicest, friendly and talented men I have ever known.” Griffin’s death comes just one week after the passing of David Bowie, who penned and produced Mott the Hoople’s biggest hit, “All the Young Dudes.”
