Same here, always wanted to meet her...never quite understood why a girl from the backstreets of Naples was called Marie Claire though...

Although he denied it the song was thought to be loosely based on the life of Sophia Loren.

Mott the Hoople.

Enormously sad that our bass player Pete Overend Watts passed away this weekend.
An eccentric, lovely man.
On stage a rock 'n' roll star, off it a walker. In 2008 (if memory serves) he walked from Land's End to John O' Groats in a pretty decent time.
He loved Mott and they couldn't have been what they were without him.
He wasn't a 'famous' musician, but he was a good one and a great character and beautiful person.

"And in the end I lost a friend, I feel so sad.."

Thank you Pete.
