** Bowie was also a huge fan of MottTheHoople, convincing them to stay together when they were about to break up. He wrote one of their biggest hits, "All the Young Dudes", just to keep them together; he also produced the album of the same name, and for one of the tracks had them cover "Sweet Jane"...a Velvet Underground song. Without Bowie's involvement, Mott would have folded, their guitarist Mick Ralphs wouldn't have met Paul Rodgers and thus no BadCompany, Mick Jones of TheClash wouldn't be inspired by Mott's lead singer Ian Hunter...the musical landscape would be very different.
