Hair Metal

Sunset Strip Extravaganza!

Livre numérique

Hair Metal

Derrière la capillarité exubérante des musiciens du hair metal, un pan entier de l'histoire du rock'n'roll des années quatre-vingt est mésestimé, par ignorance ou cliché. Si Kiss, Twisted Sister, Warrant, Lita Ford ou encore Guns N' Roses répondent à cette étiquette, un gouffre musical les sépare. Du rock'n'roll au hard rock en passant par le glam anglais, le punk, le shock rock ou le hard FM, des centaines de groupes aux influences éclectiques ont vendu plus de disques que n'importe quel autre courant en une décennie extravagante entre pyrotechnie, travestissement et décadence.Explorant oeuvres majeures et méconnues, l'auteur retrace un parcours dont la route principale est le Sunset Strip de Los Angeles, et le déclencheur un certain Van Halen à la fin des années soixante-dix.
