(Classic Rock) Former Slade frontman Noddy Holder hopes a new art exhibition will make people take the glam era more seriously.

His Wolverhampton outfit were among the leaders of the early 1970s movement, spearheading experimentation with glitter makeup, high heels and outrageous costumes.

The trend was taken in different directions by artists including David Bowie, T Rex, Roxy Music and The Sweet. Their fashion statements later influenced American rock outfits including Motley Crue, WASP and Twisted Sister.

Now the Tate Liverpool gallery is hosting Glam! The Performance Of Style until May 12, featuring over 100 artworks from big names including Andy Warhol, David Hockney and many others. more on this story
