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 backing 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.
He performed on several movie soundtracks:
- 1992 Dr. Giggles (writer: "Stateside")
- 1989 Slaves of New York ("Fall in Love with Me")
- 1988 Tapeheads (writer: "Now That You're Gone")
- 1987 American Ninja 2: The Confrontation (producer: "Tell About Mary")
He also performed in the following movie and TV series:
- 1991 The Linguini Incident (with David Bowie and Iman), drummer
- 1990 Tales from the Crypt (TV series) – For Cryin' Out Loud, drummer
- 1966 I've Got a Secret (TV series) as himself
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).
