The definitive A-to-Z guide to a period of pomp, glitz, glamour, and parent-worrying fashion unlike any other


Despite its disposable appearance, glam rock has survived and thrived for four decades, and is now viewed as one the best loved and most productive periods for pop music. From the UK, its influence spread and fused with ideas blossoming in Europe and the U.S., spawning artists such as Alice Cooper and Kiss. This book chronicles every band and artist who made a significant impression on the art form, both in its heyday and during its conception and later years. Detailing their output and recording significant events and contributions, it provides a wealth of information on numerous much-loved acts, such as T. Rex, Wizzard, Slade, Bay City Rollers, Mud, Sweet, David Essex, Suzy Quatro, Mott The Hoople, Sparks, Kenny, Spiders from Mars, Alvin Stardust, and hundreds more, ranging from household names to lesser known acts.

Dave Thompson is the author of more than 100 books, including Cream, Go Phish, Hallo Spaceboy: The Rebirth of David Bowie, I Hate New Music: The Classic Rock Manifesto, London's Burning, Never Fade Away: The Kurt Cobain Story, and Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell.
