Books Info:

Marc Bolan: Born to Boogie free pdf In 1968, an acoustic duo called Tyrannosaurus Rex appeared on the UK music scene. Their singer was an elfin-faced flower child who sang songs about dwarves and unicorns. Two years later, Marc Bolan shortened the band's name to T.Rex, bought a gold lame jacket and an electric guitar, and wrote a song called 'Ride a White Swan'. Overnight he became a teenage idol, his live appearances provoking hysteria unseen since the height of Beatlemania. Although his career was on the wane, he was one of the few of 'the old guard' to be accepted by the punk generation: his final T.Rex tour supported by The Damned, and his TV show, "Marc", providing a showcase for new wave bands. But then tragedy struck. He died in a crash with girlfriend Gloria Jones at the wheel, two weeks before his 30th birthday. In their unsurpassed biography, Chris Welch and Simon Napier-Bell explore the career of the first superstar of glam-rock. Written with the co-operation of the Marc Bolan Fan Club and June Bolan, the star's first wife, it remains the definitive book on the main man of T.Rex.
