Overview


"We're not ashamed of a little hairspray and makeup. We've always said it takes a real man to wear makeup."--Bret Michaels, Poison (1988)


There was a time--not so long ago--when pomp and spandex dominated MTV and pop radio playlists. American Hair Metal visually celebrates this orgy of flamboyance, androgyny, and animal magnetism, of big-haired alpha males and the beautiful women who surrounded them.


Hundreds of striking photographs are surrounded by hedonistic ephemera from bands like Poison, Cinderella, Motley Crue, Skid Row, and Stryper, and wild interview quotes from major players such as David Lee Roth, Jon Bon Jovi, Sebastian Bach, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Bret Michaels, Don Dokken, and a good number of unsung heroes.


Interest in hair metal is currently exploding--witness the barrage of VH1 specials, arena-level revival tours, and reissue compilations that are even today best-selling CDs.
