Bowie was the most important trendsetter, and his image was at least as important to many fans as the music itself. Bowie, however, maintained a certain distance from his glamorous image. Even then it seemed to be just a phase he was going through, a costume he would soon drop as soon as something more provocative struck him. A far more satisfying exemplar of the glam rock impulse was Marc Bolan, leader and visual symbol of the band T.Rex. Bolan was an ideal example of the sort of androgyny that fascinated the pop scene in England...as well as America.
Though Glam Rock is truly dead, the "Third Generation Punk" movement uses unusually similar aspects.
I LOVE THE 70s!
sexual attitude, the fashion . General focusing on pose and not music. A virus that possessed and possesses true rock
which is a style of life and a reaction against systems.
Started by assholes like David Bowie, it continues to be trendy, it sells well and it's loved by companies and record stores who like a non-aggressive rock style(pop style like Britney Spears bitch) cause it's a music that family buys. It's also received well by the system. Gays and
drug addicts can't react.

EXCEPTION TO THE RULE IS QUEEN
