The Most Visually Awesome Musicians

It’s all about the music, man. Well, except when it’s not. Sometimes a solo artist or band have a style so unique you can’t help but take notice. Here’s our top pick of the most visually awesome musicians.

 

KISS

Even if you’re not into over-the-top glam rock band KISS, you’ll definitely know their look. Wild black hair, leather and metal clothing and monochrome make-up define the style of The Demon, Spaceman, Catman and Starchild. Bass player and vocalist with a freakishly long tongue, Gene Simmons, has stated that he’s ‘always been a fan of Americana, and Americana has always been about imagery, often above content.’ Ten house points if you can name any other band member though.

 

David Bowie

Few musicians have reinvented themselves so successfully so many times as David Bowie has done. Firstly there’s that piercing stare with the permanently dilated left eye – a result of a schoolboy punch-up with his best friend. And from the glam rock-inspired Ziggy Stardust and the amoral romantic Thin White Duke, to the neo-classicist look, Bowie has embraced pretty much every fashion, changing up his style to match his music.

 

The Beatles

Another bunch who changed their look as they matured as musicians are The Beatles – also known as the band that inspired every other musician since 1962. They started out as leather-clad rockers and rollers, before manager Brian Epstein urged them to clean up their look. That led to those classic grey Edwardian collarless suits and the mop-top hair style that inspired a generation, before being swiftly swept away come the Sgt. Pepper days of brightly coloured military jackets. They ended their career long-haired and moustachioed, but you couldn’t miss The Beatles’ style if you tried.

 

The Candy Spooky Theater

There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of visual kei music. It’s a Japanese musical movement defined by flamboyant costumes and it’s been around since the 1980’s, although only now is its’ popularity rising in the West. Unlike glam rock though, visual kei bands feature an assortment of genres. One of the best – and best named –groups is The Candy Spooky Theater, who dress like every day is Halloween and they’re playing music in a graveyard. The music of The Candy Spooky Theater is influenced by none other than comedy-horror director Tim Burton.
