Glam Done in a Tailored Way
"This is one of my favorite rock pictures of all time. It very much captures them in the early Seventies, in the whole glam scene. But it was glam done in a tailored way. That period was the most influential period for me — not necessarily that look, but there were a lot of stylistic things happening, between Marc Bolan and T. Rex doing a different kind of glam and Bowie doing something that was more cross-gender. It was a really intriguing time. I had this picture of Bowie and Mick Ronson, from Creem magazine, up in my bedroom in Detroit. It's one of those pictures that has lived with me through the years. I bought an original print by [photographer] Mick Rock. He later became a very close friend of mine."
