Daylight Video

Had so much fun yesterday with the Eno-Fest that I spent a part of the evening wallowing around in other music of that particular era, and got fixated on the woulda-shoulda-coulda-been Super Group of the time, the Hunter-Ronson Band (Ian Hunter of Mott the Hoople and Mick Ronson, David Bowie’s essential guitar sidekick during the Hunky Dory/Ziggy Stardust period). They wound up doing a lot of music together over the years without ever really jelling as a media presence. But they left some decent videos before Ronson’s horribly premature death of liver cancer in 1993.

Here they are in one of their early performances, with “Once Bitten Twice Shy” in 1975.
