Dressing like a Kubuki Queen and singing about cops kissing the feet of priests was fairly risque in the 70s, however you look at it he took various elements and sold them to the masses. In 75 when I started listening to music Quo were regarded as elegant, Plant & Page were strange Godlike creatures and Bowie was the man who fell to earth, truly exotic. No internet, 3 channels on the telly, seaside entertainment as prime time tv, too fucking right people of a certain age hold him in awe


context is everything
