A short overview of the rock scene throughout the seventies, from glam rock and the disco era to the heyday of punk and new wave

The seventies saw the dawn of a new era in rock music in Britain. The Beatles disbanded, ushering in an era of competition to find 'the new Beatles'. It was the heyday of the singer-songwriter, the long-lasting success of Rid Stewart, and briefly the zenith of glam rock. By 1974 a sea-change in favour of disco and soul was the order of the day, though rock was spearheaded by inventive acts like 10cc, Queen and Roxy Music. Then in 1976 pub rock, the Sex Pistols, the Damned et al changed everything - but the success of such varied names as Gerry Rafferty, Kate Bush and Dave Edmunds ensured that there was something for all tastes.
