Marc Bolan singer, songwriter and guitarist. Born Mark Feld 30 September 1947 and died 16 September 1977. With his band T-Rex he help cultivate the glam rock era. His music and voice had a very distinctive sound. Even though married he began seeing Gloria Jones. His marriage broke up and he had a son with Gloria in 1975. Two weeks before Marc's 30th birthday, he was her passenger as they headed home from Morton's drinking club and resturant. Jones lost control and struck a sycamore tree. Jones lived but Marc did not. A shrine has been set up at the tree.
Here is one of his songs with the band called Motivator.
