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*
