Hunt Sales (born March 2, 1954) is an American rock drummer, who has played with Todd Rundgren, his brother Tony Fox Sales, Iggy Pop and Tin Machine.

Personal life[edit]

Hunt Sales is a son of the television comedian Soupy Sales. He has two daughters; Cali Sales, born in 1990, and Sugar Sales, born in 2007.


Hunt Sales' first group was with brother Tony in Tony and the Tigers. They appeared on Hullabaloo in 1966, and also on the local Detroit/Windsor dance show Swingin' Time with Robin Seymour.

In 1976, he played drums with the hard rock power trio Paris, formed by former Fleetwood Mac guitarist/songwriter Bob Welch. This trio (which included ex-Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick) was short-lived, releasing two albums for Capitol Records. Hunt played and sang backup vocals on the second Paris album, Big Towne, 2061.

In 1977, along with his brother Tony, Hunt provided the rhythm section for the Iggy Pop album Lust for Life. David Bowie's memories of the Sales brothers' contribution to the recording led him to invite the pair to join Tin Machine in the late 1980s.[1]

He performed on several movie soundtracks:

He also performed in the following movie and TV series:

In the 2000s, Sales relocated to Austin, Texas, where he produces and does session work. He was a member of a band led by Charlie Sexton, which participated as part of the Los Super Seven musical collective on Heard It on the X (2005).

Hunt Sales released a solo album in 2019.[2][3][4]
