Nothing But A Good Time

By Justin Quirk

A cultural history of Glam Metal: where it came from, how it defined America in the 1980s and how it all came crashing down.

Hi everyone

Just wanted to send a sincere thank you to all of you for backing the project over the last year - as you'll have seen via Unbound, we're now at our crowdfunding target. Work's already ongoing on the final manuscript and progressing nicely.

Some of you have mentioned at various points in the past year that you've got either archive material which would be useful for my research, or have got specific memories of the time, places and people under discussion. If there's anything suitable you could contribute - even relatively small details or memories - please drop me a line on and we can chat.

(incidentally, talking of archive, a few weeks ago I travelled up to Birmingham to visit the Black Sabbath exhibition as part of the Home of Metal project. It's a fantastic show and well worth a trip).

Thanks again for your support of Nothing But A Good Time - we really couldn't have got here without you.
