Music for Monday: Ian Hunter (with Mick Ronson), ‘Once Bitten, Twice Shy’

‘My, my, my…’ ‘Once Bitten, Twice Shy,’ Ian Hunter, 1975.

Ian Hunter released the “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” single in April of 1975. It was taken from Hunter’s eponymous, debut solo album following his time with Mott the Hoople. Mick Ronson (best-known for his guitar work for David Bowie during the Ziggy Stardust period) played guitar and co-produced the Hunter-penned tune.

“Once Bitten, Twice Shy” hit #14 on the UK charts in 1975. Great White’s cover-version of the song would climb to #5 on the US Billboard chart 14 years later.
