Welcome To The Global Glam Metal Blog

Welcome glammers and metalheads (or should I say GlamMetalHeads), here is a blog just for us, you and me, people who swear by all things Glam, Metal, 80s, etc. And this is a GLOBAL Blog. So, whichever part of world you're, whether you're in Los Angeles (the home of 80s Glam Metal), or in a small town in Brazil, whether you're in Tokyo cafe or a BPO in Mumbai, whether you're in a London pub or a street in Scandinavia (they've got a Metal band in every street there, it is said), you can, rather you must come here and post here for sure. So get ready for a Glammy experience and be a part of the Global Glam Metal Discussion !!!!
