Publisher's Summary

From Oscar Wilde to Ziggy Stardust, from Liberace to Lou Reed and T Rex to Roxy Music, here is the flamboyant decadence, the androgyny, and the sheer unadulterated fun of the early '70s - in an incredible rock history that tells it like it was.

Small, Important Music Movement

If you could sum up Glam! in three words, what would they be?

It's a quick, fun listen. Loved hearing all of the names. Made song lists from the bands and titles mentioned.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I'm a Roxy Music fan and loved the degree of attention paid to them in this book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Glitter, Heroin and Fluff

Chronicals A Fascinating Era Of Music

If you could sum up Glam! in three words, what would they be?

glam, rock, intellectualism

Who was your favorite character and why?

This book is non-fiction, but I'm going to say David Bowie or Brian Eno anyway because I love them.

Have you listened to any of Joanna Hall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to her performances before, but her voice is very pleasant.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It gave me a lot of the warm fuzzies (because glam rock is pretty much my favorite thing in the world) and I cried when it ended because I didn't ever want it to.
