Ian Hunter [Mott the Hoople] interviewed in Making Music April 1997:
Do you still play Dudes?
It's a great song, why stop?
I remember going to see Procol Harum, and laboured through the entire set waiting for Whiter Shade of Pale [sic] and they didn't fucking do it.
Anyway, if I don't who will? It never really worked for Bowie. Plus, I was a fan. I worked in factories and went to gigs. If I'd gone to see me and I didn't do it, I'ld be pissed off.
