There was a time—not so long ago—when pomp and spandex dominated MTV and pop radio playlists. The book American Hair Metal celebrates this orgy of flamboyance, androgyny and animal magnetism, of big-haired alpha males and the beautiful women who surrounded them.
With all the quotes and photos, this book will find a comfortable home on your coffee table. But don’t expect much more than that. American Hair Metal is a 180 page book with 160 pages of photos. It’s a ton of fun to flip through, but there’s not much to read.
