“Something is happening, Mr. Jones,” Ian Hunter sings on “Dandy,” from his 2016 album, Fingers Crossed. Although the former Mott the Hoople frontman is quoting Bob Dylan, the song is actually a tribute to Hunter’s late pal and musical champion, David Bowie. “You’re the prettiest star. … You showed us what it’s like to live inside a rainbow,” Hunter continues reverentially, echoing some of the grandeur of “All the Young Dudes,” the sentimental glam anthem Bowie penned for Mott the Hoople. Hunter could easily coast for the rest of his life on the great tunes he wrote while in Mott, but his lengthy solo career is not only sparked by such early gems as “Cleveland Rocks” and “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” but also includes more recent and rewarding albums such as Man Overboard and When I’m President.
