SHOCK and AWE
By Simon Reynolds
Published by Dey St books/HarperCollins



     Mr Reynolds takes us through the magical glam rock period of the 70’s and delivers a no holds barred exquisite contemplation and guidebook to the stars that shaped the genre. Those same stars and flamboyant personalites are examined to the fullest within his SHOCK and AWE book. For this reader, the book weaves a clearer insight into the lives and inner workings of people like, Marc Bolan, David Bowie, And Alice Cooper, among others. You are transported to this incredibly flashy and prolific time period, brief as it was, and leave with a thorough understanding of what made these artists tick. Excellent job Mr. Reynolds. Fans of the genre of 70’s Glam rock should have this book on their coffee table as a reference guide to a golden, glittery age gone by.
