De ideale formule: lang haar en een ballad

Eind jaren tachtig/ begin jaren negentig waren er veel succesvolle en minder succesvolle rockbands. De ideale formule: veel haar, leuke zanger, hier en daar een gitaarsolo en uiteraard minimaal één tragische ballad per album. Persoonlijk smulde ik er van. Sleeze Beez was zo’n band, minder succesvol dan de echt grote namen, maar zeker leuk en… Nederlands! Ze scoorden hier één echte hit met Stranger than Paradise. Het stond op hun album Screwed Blued & Tatooed. Inmiddels is de glamrock een bijna uitgestorven genre. Gelukkig hebben we de cd’s nog.🙂

At the beginning of the nineties the radio’s were ‘dominated’ by a lot of rockbands. Some of which succesful others a little less succesful. The ideal formula for a band like that: lots of hair, cute singer, some guitarsolo’s and ofcourse at least one ballad on every album. I couldn’t get enough of it. Sleeze Beez was a band like that, less succesful than the big names, but surely a nice one and… Dutch! They had one real hit in the Netherlands: Stranger than Paradise of their album Srewed Blued & Tattooed. Right now glamrock has almost died as a genre. Good for me: I still have the albums from back in the days.🙂
