This performance of Rock of Ages comes from The TV show Midnight Special and was introduced by Gladys Knight, who appears to be pipless in the clip and on her own.

No other openly gay artist had been signed to a major US lable when he signed for Elektra Records, which enabled him to give up his day job as a prostitute.
