Mott the Hoople founding member Pete Overend Watts has died aged 69.
The bassist played on songs including Roll Away The Stone and the group’s best known hit All The Young Dudes, written and produced by David Bowie.
He died on Sunday of cancer, said Peter Purnell from record label Angel Air Records.
He said Watts was a “highly intelligent and witty man who throughout his adult life was both an immensely likeable character and an enigma”.
