Description

Ther biographer of Johnny Thunders, New York Dolls and Peter Perrett turns her attention to glam rock's heyday in the early 70s and in particular, the story of Brett Smiley, one of glam's lost superstars. As a timid teenager, Antonia weaves her childhood memories of growing up as a glam-obsessed girl in Liverpool, with the stoy of the beautifully doomed, but recently resurrected, star Brett Smiley. Whilst Antonia struggles with eating disorders, single motherhood and looks for salvation in the records of Marc Bolan and The New York Dolls, Brett Smiley's life slips from the Hollywood high life to skid row as drink and drugs slowly destroy any chance he had of stardom. A promising child star on Broadway as Oliver had led to his introduction to the pop music world under the patronage of Andrew Loog Oldham, but his life soon spiralled into a down and out chemical maelstrom.
