Dressed to Kill: Classic Rock Stars in Drag

“Drag,” or the wearing of clothing of the opposite sex, has a venerable history in the world of music. Many male performers, from the age of glam rock to the new wave era, donned partial or full drag, some for jokes, some for photo shoots and some for enjoyment. This liberating act often seems to successfully and impressively break boundaries. Here is a collection of classic rockers putting on drag:
