Marc Bolan Caricature


Marc Bolan Caricature, illustrated here in London on February 12, 1972 wearing his wool top hat, age 24.

Mark Feld (real name), was an English singer-songwriter, musician, guitarist, and poet. He was best known as the lead singer of the glam rock band T. Rex. Bolan was one of the pioneers of the glam rock movement of the 1970s.

He signed to Decca Records in August 1965. At this point his name changed to Marc Bolan, the last name derived a contraction of Bob Dylan.

Bolan was close friends with Ringo Starr, Elton John and David Bowie.

Top Hits: “Bang A Gong (Get It On)”, “Metal Guru”, “Jeepster”, “Telegram Sam”, “Children Of The Revolution”, “20th Century Boy”, “The Slider”, “Ride A White Swan”, “Cosmic Dancer” and “King Of The Rumbling Spires”.

“Bang A Gong (Get It On)” was recorded with Rick Wakeman (Yes) on piano and Ian McDonald (King Crimson) on saxaphone.

Bolan never learned to drive, fearing a premature death.
On September 16, 1977 at 4am, Bolan was riding in a Mini 1275GT driven by girlfriend Gloria Jones as they headed home from Mortons drinking club and restaurant in Berkeley Square. After she crossed a small humpback bridge near Gipsy Lane on Queens Ride, Barnes, southwest London, the car struck a fence post and then a tree.

Bolan was killed instantly, while Jones suffered a broken arm and broken jaw. He was 29 years old.
