LONDON, June 5 (Reuters) - Former British pop star Gary Glitter, famous for his figure-hugging shiny silver all-in-one suits and platform shoes, was charged on Thursday with eight sexual offences against two teenage girls dating back to the 1970s.
Glitter, now 70, whose real name is Paul Gadd, shot to fame in the early 1970s with the hit "Rock and Roll" and became one of the leading figures in the "glam-rock" music fashion.
