    Christian Glamrock - the epitome of real bad music.

    The AOG on the breastplate probably stands for Assembly of God.

    I think the Poison photo is evidence enough that during the 1980s the music industry and the adult video industry were inextricably linked. Like, maybe there was only one hair & makeup artist (sic) in Southern California servicing all the glam bands and the porn starlets? Has anyone ever actually seen a photo of Bret Michaels and Tracy Lords together, or could they be one and the same?

    Those are *not* jazz hands. The palm is facing the wrong direction and they are too vertical. Those are more Flashdance/A Chorus Line hands.

    Sorry, I was a theatre major in college.

    Too confusing. Can you take some pics of yourself doing each so we can see the difference? Please?

    No...really, we only want the pics because we really want to see the difference. No....of course we wouldn't use them to make fun of you. Why would you ever think that?

    Yikes! I'm kinda glad I don't know the difference. But just in case, like KT said, we need evidence.

    I mean, I'd hate to get them confused when talking to the guys about it over coffee.

    I bow to your superior knowledge of jazz hands.

    In any case, they're still in the same general genre as jazz hands, and are thus not something one would expect the heavy metal gods of Stryken to be caught dead doing.

    Then again, they're wearing wh0re makeup and L'Eggs.

    It is something that hast taken year of arguing, countless committee meetings, and millions of tax dollars to define.
