Beautiful and talented musician and spirit who was the lead of T. Rex (previously Tyrannosaurus Rex which was acoustic, and prior John's Children). Some of his best-known songs include: "Get It On (Bang a Gong)"; "20th Century Boy"; "Jeepster"; "Metal Guru"; "Cosmic Dancer"; "Hot Love"; "Children of the Revolution"; "Telegram Sam"; "The Slider"; and many others. He starred in a film (produced by Ringo Starr) called "Born to Boogie."
He was born in East London in 1947, and died in London almost exactly 30 years later. He was the passenger in a purple Mini driven by his girlfriend (and mother of his child, Rolan). The car went out of control and crashed into a sycamore tree. There is a shrine dedicated to him at the site.
He was an influence to many others and is considered the prototype Glam Rocker, though this moniker doesn't do him justice.
Marc Bolan is likened to an Elfin Prince because of his diminutive stature and etheric boyish good looks.

Marc Bolan and T. Rex's music, though 30 years and more old, still rocks and is radio-played and used in many films.

"Metal Guru" topped the chart in 1972, blocking Elton John's "Rocket Man."

Robert Palmer and Power Station covered Marc Bolan and T. Rex's song "Get it On," which was released in the USA as "Bang A Gong."

"Keep a little Marc in your heart."

"sat with a cat, on your head alone at last, you cry with a sigh, resurrecting all your past,
life's an elevator, it goes up and down,
life's an elevator, can't you dig the sound,
swift is the kill, shadows fill the empty walls, wild is the word, that engulfs love's sacred halls,
life's an elevator, it goes up and down,
life's an elevator, can't you dig the sound,
scenes from your past spread, before the flaming dawn, have faith in the hearts of the world they're rocking on,
life's an elevator, it goes up and down,
life's an elevator, can't you dig the sound"
