The Glitter Band are a glam rock band from England, who initially worked as Gary Glitter’s backing band under that name from 1973, when they then began releasing records of their own. They were unofficially known as the Glittermen on the first four hit singles by Gary Glitter from 1972 to 1973.
The Glitter Band had seven UK Top 20 hit singles in the mid-1970s, and three hit albums. Pete Phipps and John Springate are still currently touring with The Glitter Band. John Rossall tours under his own name, as did Harvey Ellison (b. 1951, died 1 February 2017 from bowel cancer).
