Battle Of The Bulge: Rock Stars in Tight Pants In The 1960s And 1970s

It’s well known that tight trousers have a long history in rock and pop music stretching all the way back and front to the 1950s when Elvis Presley first unleashed his “Hound Dog” on national television. Within weeks, it seemed as if every singer was wearing a pair of strides one size too small leaving many broadcasters to shoot these performers from the waist up so as not to offend the less fashionable viewers at home. For some, what God had provided wasn’t enough and their trousers were often padded with socks or cucumbers…

    I think there should be a party game of “real or fake” with these pics. Some are pretty easy to guess.

    I think Freddie Mercury’s Bulge is Useless to the Female!! And from what I’ve read about his life, ( the biography about his life) where he sent his people out to find “boys” for him to play with, It just doesnt sit right in my mind, And I’d rather NOT see it. There are men who weren’t Rock Stars in Prison for what he did. It just makes me SICK!!!!

    You don’t show a photo of Elvis, even though you referenced him as the originator if this look, because there are not any. When he sang Hound Dog on TV his pants were baggy. His casual clothes and stage costumes were not at all revealing. Elvis was far above these others in every way. Get your facts straight!

    Freddie Mercury didnt sleep with under age “boys” you fool! But we KNOW Plant slept with under age girls dont we? Mercury was attracted to macho guys not near children like so many other rock stars.

    I’ve actually read the Freddie Mercury bios and there’s nothing about him sleeping with boys. Why would you say that?

    Who is that in the very first picture shown?. In the pic after Ringo, is that Eddie Van Halen? Who is in the pic shown after Jimi Hendrix? Who is in the pic with Keith Moon? Who are in the two pics after Robert plant—#16 and 17 (Ron?),
