    Glam Rock - The Real Deal

    Glam Rock - next to The Beatles and The Who, nothing was as important to me as this. I found it completely freeing. It had everything that my beloved Hard Rock had and added a slight twist to it. And the chicks loved, so who was I to disagree.

    There is about 30 minutes of videos and promo clips from about 35 years ago.
    It is worth a look and listen. And tell me what you think.

    Also Slade were very good.

    Quiet Riot made two of their best songs (Come on Feel the Noise , Mama We're All Crazee Now) into hits during the rebirth of Metal in the 80's, but these guys ( Slade) were not a Heavy Metal band. One of the great unsung bands of all time.

    I guess nobody likes Glam Rock.

    T. Rex - Electric Warrior = one of my all-time favorite albums.  I still have a painting I did of that cover in 8th grade.

    Bowie's 'Hunky Dory' is not far behind, though I'm not sure if it counts as 'glam', per se....

    Mott, Slade and Sweet just made fun, groovy rock n' roll that's hard to ignore. 

    And what's to say about the New York Dolls except, "Brilliant."

    Add to the list: Roxy Music

    Re: Glam Rock - The Real Deal

    I couldn't find a really good Youtube clip of Roxy from back in the day. To this day, Bowie says that Bryan Ferry was a major influence in his music.

    I will also acknowledge Slade as well. They were an odd group of musicians, that is for sure.

    Queen seemed to take the glitter and swagger of Glam and did their own thing with it.

    I'm looking at Wiki to see whose on the glam rock list. They say Lady Gaga is included. Can you handle that boys, or is that your little secret.

    Re: Glam Rock - The Real Deal

    Lady Gaga has taken what Marilyn Manson, Madonna, Alice Cooper and David Bowie did years ago and put it to dreadful sounding music and many people think it's an original idea or that it's good.

    The glam rock bands of the early 70's that jessey talks about were good musicians first , then added the visual aspects to make the stage show more entertaining for the concert goers.

    Lady Gaga is just another 2000's celebrity looking for attention with no real substance. Think Sarah Palin, Snooki and Paris Hilton.

    As for Lady Gaga - I refer everyone to an 80's band called Missing Persons with lead singer Dale Bozio. Pull up one of their youtube vids and then tell me where Lady Gaga was really inspired with her look.

    I'm no fan, but Gaga has boatloads of talent (and smarts) over those three.  In fact, when compared to the likes of other popstars like Britney, Christina, etc., Gaga at least has some sense of style and is not boring.  Dance pop is all about the moment - what the clubs are playing now...and Gaga is IT.

    Which begs the question.

    With all this talent, why make a joke of yourself? Neil Young has talent ( not a great singing voice , though) and I can tell you , after listening to Neil for almost 40 years...he hasn't started getting "boring" yet and doesn't need to dress in costumes made of raw meat to bring attention to his music.

    Maybe , however, you are right about the smarts. She obviously knows how to market herself in these times where the entertainment business has lowered it's standards so that "shock" and dressing like Halloween is everday is the most important thing.
