Product description


" . . this book is excellent. Somebody has finally got 'me' right, and in fact, the entire genre of glam rock."
-Suzi Quatro

"Performing Glam Rock reminds us just how important music, and especially popular music, is as a site for understanding subjectivity and social movements through performance. . . . A useful book on an undertheorized but important genre of popular music-glam rock."
-Susan Fast, author of In the Houses of the Holy: Led Zeppelin and the Power of Rock Music
