Nielsen BookData

Explores most decadent of genres on both sides of the Atlantic. This title charts the retro future sounds, outrageous styles and gender-fluid sexual politics that came to define the first half of the seventies. It also brings right up to date with a final chapter on glam in hip hop, Lady Gaga, and the aftershocks of David Bowie's death.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

Spanning more than four decades, this is the epic history of Glam Rock, from one of the finest music writers of his generation. Covering both sides of the pond, Reynolds looks at Roxy Music, Bowie, Alice Cooper and Slade, to name but a few.
