Marc Bolan – September 2012 Classic Rock Birthdays
T. Rex frontman Marc Bolan, who died just two weeks shy of his 30th birthday, would have been 65 years old on Sept. 30. The legacy left by this London born glam rocker is one of innovation and creativity.
T. Rex was formed in 1967 by Bolan, originally under the name Tyrannosaurus Rex. In their short time with us the group created hits such as ‘Jeepster,’ ‘Metal Guru,’ and ‘Get It On.’ Sadly, his life was cut short when he was killed in a 1977 car accident.
