Pete Overend Watts

God knows why we influenced all these people. Sometimes I can’t see what all the fuss is about. Maybe it’s that bit of magic. Maybe Mott The Hoople had that, I don’t know if it did or not. If people say they love Mott, I just can’t see it, I don’t know why. But it’s nice to think people really liked what we did. It’s also funny to think that people are probably as mad on Mott The Hoople as I am on The Monks and The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band. Poor devils!
