About the rock star lineup, the Mott The Hoople legend called it “a fluke.” He said, “This was not planned. Really, I’m serious. I really couldn’t believe some of them. I mean, it’s amazing what’s happened. It’s been such a buzz.”
The first single, “Bed of Roses” was released last month and features Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers on guitar and Ringo Starr on drums.
Hunter commented about naming the album Defiance, and said, “It’s like, people my age shouldn’t be making records, blah, blah, blah. But we’ve still got a bit left.”
