Product Description

Publisher: Hodder

Author: Lesley-Ann Jones

From folk artist to flower power pixie elfin to the king of glam rockers, T-Rex front man Marc Bolan was the ultimate chameleon. His far-reaching musical and stylistic influence is more relevant today than ever with hits such as 'Ride A White Swan', 'Children Of The Revolution', 'Get It On' and 'Hot Love' as fresh and exhilarating as when first released. At the peak of his popularity during his lifetime, Bolan was outselling Jimi Hendrix and The Who, and yet relatively little is really known about the hypnotic 20th-century boy turned 21st-century icon.
