Metallic guru, is it you?

Marc Bolan was one of the chief frocker's heroes when glam rock was in the ascendant and Metal Guru stormed the charts in 1972. Oh, how we all cried when Marc died in 1977, but his legacy of metallics, lurid lurex and glitter remained de rigueur throughout the decade for a night out at the disco. Fast forward 40-odd years and metallic is once again a key trend on the catwalk and the high street, so we have lined up some of our favourite heavy metal numbers that should appeal to the glam frockers among us!
