I am a huge fan of Mick Rock's photos, especially during the glam rock period. I have Blood & Glitter (Mick Rock), which I believe has been out of print for quite a while. I memorized every photograph and wanted more. I was super excited when I spotted Glam! an Eyewitness Account and quickly added it to my Amazon Wish List. Unfortunately, when I unwrapped my gift and quickly skimmed the pages, I was hit with a wall of disappointment. "I have this book," I exclaimed. So, if you have Blood & Glitter, don't bother ordering this, unless you want the same book with a different title and cover. If you do not own Blood & Glitter and you dig this period of rock, then order this ASAP!!! The book contains the very best pics of Lou Reed, Bowie, Iggy Pop, etc. There are even pics from Rocky Horror.

This book is an artistic series of glimpses into this beautiful era of music. It is not a history or a documentary, but the collection of stunning candid and posed images, interspersed with short quotations and anecdotes (in addition to David Bowie's foreword.) These photographs are gorgeous, and some of them are published for the first time in this book.

The most space is given to David Bowie, but there are many beautiful images of Queen, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, some of Debbie Harry, Syd Barrett and many others (there are a number of images from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, too!)

The only negative aspect of the book is that some of the larger images that cover two pages lose a bit in the crease between them. In a few images, the crease runs right through someone's nose.

I recommend the book to fans of glam rock in general, Mick Rock's photography in particular, and admirers of any of the artists featured. I would probably enjoy these photographs if I wasn't a fan, though, and you might too.

Mick Rock is one talented man - and in case you didnt know this, it would become very apparent to you by viewing just one of his many amazing photographs.

Great book with fantastic images, witty and insightful quotes, and a comprehensive look into some of the most legenday and unique artists of our time.

Only small complaint is that the binding is not all that superb. After a few views, sections become loose and seperate slightly.

Overall, one amazing collection!

(Bowie fans will be especially delighted by DB's foreword and vast array of pics. Also, Mick's "Moonage Daydream" is a MUST)

Format: Paperback
Looking at the pages of this explosive book, one feels as if they are taking a glimpse into an alternative universe and in many ways you are. Mick Rock was the supreme chronicler of the fantasy world of Glam. His images and Bowie's quotes are juxtaposed and further mythologize this highly original period. David Bowie states that he would be going to hell because he sold his soul to the devil. The book is arranged chronologically and ends with images of the Punk Rockers. Compared to the fey and sexually charged Eno, Amanda, Lou and Freddie they look so sober and serious. Debbie Harry being the sole exception, of course. Viva la Glam !

Look, this book is absolutely fantastic. Five stars at least for the material.
However, the binding of the book is so poor that it falls off the spine after 2 viewings. Inexcusable!
