His name is forever linked to the hairspray, drag, and glitter era as the co-founding front man of glam pioneers, Hanoi Rocks, but he’s also made a separate legacy with his own name. We’re talking about Michael Monroe’s solo career, which receives a highlight of its own via a career spanning, retrospective compilation CD from Spinefarm Records entitled The Best. Monroe’s story has already received substantial coverage over the years by various publishers, you would think they were running out of content ideas, but hey it’s a good story! He’s dedicated himself to one genre as a songwriter and performer for nearly 40 years and is practically a rock n’ roll phoenix: forms the glam rock powerhouse, endures a tragedy with the group that ultimately led to the first era of the band closing curtains and segued into what has been a successful solo career. That’s not an easy ship to steer and maintain by any means, especially in the savage and subjective world of the record business.
