For me there's always been good players and good songwriters in Glam Rock and Glam Metal for the last 40+ years, some where actually genius
songwriter and very often very good players, if not virtuosos within the genre...
... let's have a little recap, some of these bands or artists have acomplished amazing musical status within the Glam
In the begining... Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Suzi Quatro, T. Rex, Gary Glitter, Elton John, David Bowie, New York Dolls, Queen, Slade, Sweet, Bay City Rollers....
then later... Aerosmith, Van Halen, Kiss, Mötley Crue, Guns N' Roses, Bon Jovi, Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, Skid Row, Europe, Def Leppard, David Lee Roth, Stryper, Bad Company...
