Top 10 Prettiest Boys of Rock 'n Roll

Updated: Mar 7

My formative years happened during the golden age of MTV Glam Rock, Hair Metal, thus I consider myself a true connoisseur. Time to pay tribute.


My criteria: Any band member from the late 70s thru the early 90s, who had long hair and engaged in what I would call "glamour shots" and dabbled at least once with make-up. I will be considering the usual things, how well they teased their hair, bone structure, animal magnetism, glamour magic etc. Music ability not taken into consideration. LOLZ. Though they are all incredible musicians. Any one of these men could top my list.


No 10 **Mike Tramp** of lead singer of White Lion. He had the look and was not ashamed to flaunt it. With perfectly teased blonde hair, Mr. Tramp sang his way into my heart with the shamefully emotional ballad, 'When he Children Cry.' Those Fabio good looks, that bone structure and that HAIR!!! Need I say more. https://www.discogs.com/artist/274216-White-Lion

No 9 **Michael Hutchence** lead singer of INXS. In his wonderfully moody, romantic video for 'Never Tear Us Apart', made a 7 yo me sit up and listen. Michael wrapped in a fur coat wanders around Prague in the fog. This long haired, vampire looking beauty. Um, yess please, can I have some more? https://open.spotify.com/artist/1eClJfHLoDI4rZe5HxzBFv

No 8 **Eddie Van Halen** Lead guitarist of Van Halen. Yes, Eddie. Not typically known as a heartthrob, but take a 2nd look. That endearing smile, the cute happy puppy energy. Yep. He had something special in his "puppy years" I missed when I was a kid with my face glued to MTV. Not anymore. Now I appreciate. Thank you Mr. Van Halen. http://www.van-halen.com/ All the support to his talented son. Wolfgang and band Mammoth. https://www.mammothwvh.com/

No. 7. **Yngwie Malmsteen** https://www.yngwiemalmsteen.com/

Feast eyes on this Swedish Neo Classical Guitarist, composer, singer, gorgeous genius. In the 80s, MTV was totally sleeping on this incredible hottie of the highest class. With his eccentric Baroque glam rock presentation, his passion for his Fender, this songbird is a rare and precious gem. Extra brownie points for his hair and fashion always ALWAYS on point. Thanks you Yngwie. We appreciat ... and my man and I currently have tickets to seem him soon and cannot wait! https://www.yngwiemalmsteen.com/

No. 6 **Sebastian Bach** http://www.sebastianbach.com/ Lean singer of Skid Row. Freakishly pretty, this eye candy man can sing and emote like not ones business. He off-set his knockout good looks with an obnoxious and boorish personality which, sad to say, kind of put me off him a little. But credit where credits due. Mr. Sebastian Bach goes down as torch bearer in my heart, legend first class pretty boy of Rock 'n Roll. I stole sooo many music magazines because of him. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skid_Row_(American_band)

No 5 **Blixa Bargeld** https://blixa-bargeld.com/ This man from West Berlin was a true unicorn in his prime. This elf creature with a deep voice, razor sharp bone structure, tall, musician-thin, rare creature spent most of the 80s in black leather, fronting the German "industrial" trailblazers, Einstürzende Neubauten (collapsing new buildings) Herr Bargeld, a true Artist, is still making amazing and challenging music today.

No 4 **Joe Perry** Ehm, I mean Mr. Joe fucking Perry. Yes. Lead guitarist of Aerosmith. Smoldering, dark haired stallion, brooding prince, bonafide hunka-hunka, hubba-hubba, with a jaw line out of this frickin world. Sweet physical perfection, good god is that man handsome. And Mr. Perry just gets more handsome with age, and extra brownie points for ALWAYS having his hair and style on point! Thank you Mr. Perry. https://joeperry.com/

JOE PERRY! Yes, murder that guitar.

No 3 **Steve Clark** lead guitarist of Def Leppard. https://www.defleppard.com/ Lets all take a collective sigh. This blonde haired angel immortalized in youth by his untimely death with his gorgeous golden tresses and strangely alluring low slug guitar could be my dysfunctional boyfriend any day. Loosing him too still hurts. Long live White Lightening. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Clark

STEVE CLARK!

No 2. **Rachel Bolan** The bass player of SKID ROW, with the pretty name to match. Overshadowed by the singer Sebastian, Rachel with his dreamy brown, kohl-lined eyes, exotic noise chain and luscious long dark thick locks is an old new thrill I confidently put right there near the peak of drop dead gorgeous rocker boys. I only wish the original Skid Row line up had had a few more good year but their hey-day was sadly cut short. It was a true tragedy when grunge music stopped short the glorious glam era.

No 1 Prettiest Boy or Rock 'n Roll goes to....


** Mr. Rikki Rockett** drummer of Poison. Ok, I'm letting my 8 year old self pick her first long haired crush. This shamelessly glam, romance-novel-cover-come to life dream, with the tresses of a lion, the best hair and make up, and pout MTV has ever seen. (I heard he went through beauty school and did the band's makeup) He was a perfect mix of masculine glamour. Mr Rockett wins first place, and the title of the Prettiest Boy of Rock 'n Roll. Thanks Mr. Rockett for boldly going where few men have gone before ... and making my parent cringe! https://www.poisonofficial.com/

Thanks for reading my silliness. =)

Who do you like best?

Let's discuss.




Honorable mention goes to my husband, Jim. Though not part of the glam rock scene, this long hair drummer gets my heart racing the most.
