I'm not sure how to categorize Mr. Glitter. Bubble-glam-punk? Part teen idol, part glam, and definitely an influence on some of the punk bands. Really dumb material, always performed completely straight in six inch platform shoes. Rock n Roll Parts 1 and 2 was a huge hit. His career spans back to the sixties and Glitter's initial moniker was Rubber Bucket. Recent run ins with the law have lowered his stock somewhat. His Christmas record is a real hoot, if you can find it. I would really like to find some more live concert footage of these guys.
