    Glam rock visuals peaked during the mid 1970s with artists including T. Rex, David Bowie , Roxy Music and Gary Glitter in the UK and New York Dolls, Lou Reed and Jobriath in the US.

    Although glam rock went into a steep decline in popularity in the second half of the 1970s it was a direct influence on acts that rose to prominence later, including Kiss and American glam metal acts like Quiet Riot, W.A.S.P., Twisted Sister and Mötley Crüe.
