A Rok 'n' Roll Odyssey: Glam Rock
Early to mid-1970s
T-Rex, Sweet, KISS, New York Dolls, David Bowie, Elton John
Glam rock was both an extension and reaction against the English psychedelic and art rock scenes that emerged during the late 1960s.
As much as a fashion as a music subgenre, glam rock was based on eccentricity and androgyny - think glittery make-up, sequined clothes, garish hairstyles and platform-soled boots!
