Richie Anderson

RIP Richie Anderson, Mott the Hoople’s original one and only road tech (back in the day they were called roadies).

At the beginning, all we had was Richie; he kept turning help down, until, eventually, Phil John appeared and Richie grudgingly relented. Richie was a rock – up with the best – and became quite the well turned out gent in later years. When Mott split he joined Queen and Brian May was his best man.

Nobody better. Sadly gone, but not forgotten. Sleep easy mate.
