Pedophilia Allegations Tarnish Gary Glitter
If Gary Glitter keeps at it, he’s going to tarnish the shine of glam rock forever: After being charged with child pornography possession in 1999, Glitter allegedly was involved with a 15-year-old girl in Vietnam. Although he has not been formally charged with any crime, Glitter has fled the Southeast Asian nation. According to The Chicago Tribune, authorities just want to question him. Glitter has lived internationally since he spent four months in a U.K. jail as a result of the 1999 debacle. Before living in Vietnam, he was booted out of Cambodia though there were never official charges levied against him. The last album Glitter released was 1989’s live album Gary Glitter’s Gangshow: The Gang, The Band, The Leader.
