Ep. 126: Beneath The Hair Vol. 4 - Forgotten Glam Metal - White-Out

Episode Summary

Bleach that hair and spray that Aquanet, as we once again dive hair-first into the world of obscure glam metal. Whether you call it: glam metal, hair metal, cock rock, or hard rock… this time we are focusing on bands that include the color “white” in their band name. For some reason, Whitesnake, White Lion, and Great White all had tremendous success around the exact same time in the mid-to-late 80s. Was there luck in the name? Were there more “white…” bands out there at the same time?
