Marc Bolan – Famous Musicians Who Correctly Predicted Their Own Death
Marc Bolan looked like a rock star. And he usually sang about the usual rock-star things in his songs with T. Rex. He inspired a whole legion of glitter-wearing fans to follow his every word. And on the 1972 single 'Solid Gold Easy Action,' he seemed to have a knack for predicting the future -- even foreshadowing his own demise five years later.
Look no further than the opening line of 'Solid Gold Easy Action,' a single-only release that eventually showed up on the same year's 'Great Hits' compilation. "Life is the same and it always will be / Easy as picking foxes from a tree," Bolan sings as typically glammy guitars spill out a riff. Turns out that the license plate on the car that Bolan was killed in on Sept. 16, 1977, was "FOX 661L." And oh yeah, it was wrapped around a tree.
