Glam Rock Lives!
What a great song! Watching this new version of The Struts’ “Body Talks”, featuring Kesha, never fails to make me smile.
The shaggy-haired, skinny, androgynous lead singer for The Struts is Luke Spiller, who has been described as “the musical love child of Freddie Mercury and Mick Jagger”.

The band has just started a three-month, 45-city US tour, with many of those 45(!) shows already sold out.
