Glamrockz, The History

Hi, my name is Mal, i'm the founder member of Glamrockz.
Glamrockz started in september 2010 by myself, the vision i held wasn't one of cheap spikey wigs, with cheap fancy dress, cheesy party band playing songs that had little or nothing to do with Early seventies Glam Rock. The 70's was my time, my passion, i wanted  an authentic and passionate tribute to the music and the stars of that era; Glamrockz as it is today was the outcome. We first hit the road in Febuary 2011 and in no time at all were packing out pubs, clubs, venues, biker rallies etc. We were invited onto local radio to talk about the band and onto Glam Rock shows, i myself did an interview for the beeb along with other Tributes on the scene, Glamrockz had well and truly arrived.

The first one to join me was Dave TheLaw Wilson, an imense guitarist and vocals, recording artist who's main influences were the late great David Bowie and Mott the Hoople, here's a picture of Dave as Ian Hunter

Second in was B.S.D. Big Sexy Dave (yes, another Dave) and absolutelly larger than life character, brilliant Bass player and lead vocal, took to his part of Roy Wood of Wizzard fame like a duck to water, heree's a pic of B.S.D. as Roy Wood.

Last but by no means least was Rodders, without doubt one of the most powerful, perfecting drummer/showmen i have ever worked with, the one and only Rodders

Onto 2016 and the band went through a lineup change, Billy was our second guitarist, an absolutelly brilliant perfectionist of a man, but one year later, due to his work commitments, Billy had to leave, he was sorely missed, here's Billy as Alice Cooper

So up to date, Glamrockz is  4 piece band. Next in was Chris Chadwick, an old friend of mine from way back, Chris's past lays in The Club scene with very successful comedy showbands, Chris is  a brilliant Keys man and a legend of a singer, here's Chris in his role as Roy Wood of Wizzard

Next in was Tracy, Tracy was Bassist and harmony vocal in Machine gun etiquette, a tribute to the Dammed, who actually toured with Marc Bolan, Tracy has also played in other Glam Rock bands so is a time served veteran of early 70's Glam Rock, a great asset to the band, here she is as Suzi Quattro

Last is was Daz, Daz has come straight from the tribute scene with a Queen Tribute fronted by a T.V talent show winner, a consumate professional. Here's Daz in his role as Mick Tucker from Sweet.

And so onto myself, Slade were my favourite band of the 70's but Marc Bolan was the reason i picked up a guitar aged 11, i've been playing his music ever since, ive been lucky enough to be a recording artist in my younger days and even up to a couple of years ago with an 80's band, and worked with Marc's son Rolan Bolan twice, Marc was my influence, right down to my Marc Bolan Les Paul

Last but by no means least, our very own Womble !
