    Dale Griffin, drummer for rock group Mott The Hoople, has died aged 67.

    He was a founder member of the group, best known for classic tracks Roll Away The Stone and All The Young Dudes.

    The latter was written and produced by David Bowie, who sang backing vocals on the track.

    The band, who made eight albums during their five-and-a-half year existence, reformed to mark their 40th anniversary in 2009 - but Griffin was too ill to take part.

    I have a very mild memory of Mott The Hoopie but I do remember liking them a while back. It is always sad when we lose someone, and so this might be a good time for me to go back an honor him by listening to some of his music. He was certainly talented, and I hope that his friends and family know that he is in a better place.
