Nothin' But A Good Time by Justin Quirk

Welcome to Day 5 of the Blogtour for Justin Quirk's look at 'the spectacular rise and fall of Glam Metal' 

Glam was the big sound of the 80s. The sound, the performers and (especially) the hair were huge. This book takes a year by year look at where Glam came from, why it vanished and 'why nobody admits to being a Glam Rocker anymore'. The anecdotes are brilliant (like when Slash was an errand boy for Motley Crűe - he lasted one day and nicked  $100 from them into the bargain). As for where it went - well, it's no secret that Grunge came along and sucked all the fun out of Rock. 

It feels like the author has a real feel for the era and I can certainly say that this book took me back to my youth and 'the good old days' 

Highly recommended 4/5*
