Re: Whats the deal with Glam Metal
Personally, I don't care for it. Usually, I find the sound grating.
Image-wise, The NY Dolls and KISS were so uncool they were cool, and that was fun. No idea how they got around on those platform heels.
There can be depth to it, though. The Sweet (Ballroom Blitz! Yeah!) paved the way for Queen, who started out playing some of the best glam metal ever to full-blown art rock.
