Marc Bolan

Marc Bolan T Shirts Collection at T Shirt Subway.

Marc Bolan (born Mark Feld) was the frontman of legendary glam rock group T.Rex. He grew up in post-war Hackney, northeast London, and became a singer-songwriter, guitarist and poet.

His first musical project was in school when he played guitar in "Susie and the Hoops", and it was when he moved to Wimbledon that he fell in love with rock and roll legends such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and Arthur Crudup.

Bolan left school at 15, and his career began with modelling and acting, thanks partly to his mod image. Bolan's musical career took off with John's Children, before forming Tyrannosaurus Rex with fellow ex-John's Children member Steve Peregrin Took. Bolan later shortened the group's name to T.Rex and achieved worldwide fame and adoration.

He died on 16 September 1977 when the Mini his friend was driving crashed on the way home from a restaurant. Fellow T.Rex member Steve Currie also died in a car crash less than four years later.
