Glam Rock

Glam Rock is a style of Rock music that emerged in the UK in the 1970s, characterised by outrageous makeup, costumes and hairstyles. With Glam Rock musicians often sporting platform shoes and glitter, the music charts were dominated by Glam Rock from 1971 to 75. Often thought to have been started by Marc Bolan after he appeared on Top of the Pops shrouded in glitter, many famous musicians have performed Glam Rock – such as David Bowie, Slade, Elton John, Freddie Mercury and Rod Stewart.
