Glam Rock inspired guitar solos (all time faves)


OK so it wasn’t until I watched a documentary on David Bowie on Channel 4 recently that I really appreciated how seminal the track Moonage Daydream was in the glam rock movement. But it is also important as a pivotal piece of music for all sorts of other reasons.

A lot of people say that it wasn’t until when David Bowie and Mick Ronson came together that the magic really happened, and this amazing video of a live performance of Moonage Daydream really does show how musically brilliant they were as a band.

Mick Ronson’s guitar, how it was played, and how it fitted into the rest of the music around it was a huge influence on a lot of people. Below I list 3 of the tunes that I grew up with and loved that were also influenced by Mick Ronson’s genius guitar playing, but there are many more: Eddie Van Halen’s amazing Eruption, Prince (Let’s Go Crazy), The Damned (Under The Floor Again, listen from 4 minutes in), and even Goldie (Dragonfly, from 6:40).
