K. That's why I asked for clarification on the glam rock label... because while 70s bands used make-up (KISS, Bowie) I really associate that glam look to the Poisons, Motley Crew, Whitesnake look that was the beginning of the hair band era.

A lot of the British bands really seemed to pull their rock out of the blues sound -i.e. Led Zepplin... so I've felt that a lot of rock bands tried to imitate Zepplin more than anyone else.

Meanwhile Led Zeppelin were imitating many of their forebears-- Stairway to Heaven was borne out of an instrumental piece, Taurus recorded by the band Spirit they also heavily borrowed from an obscure Ritchie Valens track, Oo My Head in one of their songs.  That's not necessarily a bad thing though.
