VIDEO: Patrick Wolf "Hard Times"

I've delved a little bit into glam rock as of late.
My interest was spurned by Okkervil River's fantastic ode to Bruce Wayne Campbell (better known as Jobriath) and continued onto other acts like David Bowie, The New York Dolls, and even Twisted Sister.
I don't know what hooked me. The larger than life characters these musicians create or their often times larger than life music?
And its fun to see that the spirit of those artists are still alive, most notably embodied within Patrick Wolf.
Want a crash course in glam rock? This is glam rock. Enjoy.
