Re: Whats the deal with Glam Metal
I definately think some great music came out of that period.
The eighties were my my teenage years so the whole "don't need nothin but a good time" party attitude was in full affect.
Still, whenever I hear music from that timeframe it brings a smile to my face
those were happy times.
The 90's seemed to take a much more serious, moody approach - ditched the guitar solo's and went to flannel, army boots and pretty much put a wet blanket
on glam rock for quite some time.
Now there is acutally a resurgence of interest in music form that time due to guitar hero - the younger generation is digging it in a big way.
I think it is cool when I see my friends kids playing guitar hero to glam metal music.
It's like What Zappa said about jazz:
"it's not dead - it just smells funny"
