Michael Monroe Tributes Dale Griffin

(Classic Rock) Michael Monroe has paid tribute to Dale 'Buffin' Griffin, who died on Sunday at the age of 69. Speaking to Classic Rock, he revealed how Mott The Hoople were an inspiration to Hanoi Rocks, and how the two came to work together on the band's classic Back To Mystery City album.

"Mott The Hoople were one of my favourite bands when I was a kid in my teens and one of Hanoi Rocks' biggest influences," says Monroe. "So when we were looking for a producer for our Back To Mystery City album, we asked for Ian Hunter, but he was unavailable so we asked for Pete - Overend Watts - and Dale Griffin, who was always Buffin, and they were happy to oblige.

"We made the album down in Hastings and I really enjoyed working with both Buffin and Pete, it was a really pleasant experience and probably the some of the most fun I've had making a record. They got Morgan Fisher in to play piano on a couple of songs, they had the Fairlight, which we were playing around with, and they got us making farm animal noises on Tooting Bec Wreck. They were really good producers, a great choice." Read more here.
