One of the nicest, friendly and talented men I have ever known
Peter Purnell

He added: "All he ever wanted was for his beloved Mott The Hoople to reform and it was his determination that achieved that very feat in 2009 but sadly by then he was too ill to perform at the five sold-out dates - though he did join the band for encores."
Griffin played in several bands before finding fame with singer Stan Tippens, keyboard player Verden Allen, guitarist Mick Ralphs and bassist Pete Overend Watts in the late 1960s in the collective Silence. 
They quickly signed their first record deal and collaborated with Guy Stevens who later changed the band’s name to Mott the Hoople after the Willard Manus 1967 novel.

Mott The Hoople recorded eight albums together and collaborated with David Bowie
Bowie played an instrumental part in the band’s success, not only penning one of their biggest hits, but by convincing the group to stay together in 1972 and put them in contact with his own manager Tony De Fries.

The trail-blazing singer also offered them some of his biggest hits including Suffragette City but they begged for Drive-In Saturday. 

Bowie refused to give the single up, but wrote them the monster smash All The Young Dudes instead (its narrative forms part of the story of Bowie's alter-ego Ziggy Stardust).

The track climbed to number three in the Official UK Singles chart and hit the top 40 in America. 

Mott The Hoople recorded eight albums during their five years together and were asked to reform in 2009 - but Griffin was too ill to take part. 

Just as their reunion tour was due to commence, Griffin was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Instead, his parts were played by The Pretenders drummer Martin Chambers, although he was reunited with the band on stage for several encores during their five-night stint at the Hammersmith Apollo.
