Gary Glitter: Ballroom Dancing With The Big G

Max Bell, New Musical Express, 28 December 1974

GARY GLITTER is sensibly ensconced in a very old fashioned smart hotel where the only thing liable to disturb his peace-of mind is a nutty lift attendant, well into the festive spirit, (whisky probably) who christens each floor thus: (1) "Washington" (2) "New York" (3) "Atlanta, Georgia" (4) "Ontario" (5) "Mexico" (6) "Blaargh" (7) "Toronto". With typical British phlegm no-one bats an eyelid, not even when he falls off his seat.
