I am the blood at the corner of your eye...
Mick Rock (pictured above with the answer to the recent calendar competition at the Rock Style exhibition in London) has a new photo-book out in April of 2001. This beautifully designed large format volume, entitled Blood and Glitter, is a pictorial record of the Seventies Glam Rock scene, and it will feature a foreword written by David Bowie. Mick gave me a sneak preview of the book earlier this week, and I for one can't wait for this mouth-watering gem to become available.
Apart from rare and unpublished photographs of all the usual suspects, such as Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, and Queen, pretty well all of the key players of the Glam Rock movement are represented here, including shots from various historical Glam events like The New York Dolls at Bibas. Many of the people around David at the time are pictured in all their glittering glory, such as Lindsay Kemp, Freddi Burretti, Pierre Laroche, Amanda Lear and a cast of crazies, some for the first time. More details to follow very soon. Yum yum, yum!
