Overview

Marc Bolan burst onto the music scene in the late 1960s, an elfin hippie who sang otherworldly tunes about unicorns. Two years later, he formed legendary band T. Rex and pioneered glam rock in Britain. Co-written by Bolan’s first manager, this definitive biography traces Bolan’s life from the early struggles to his emergence as a teen idol on par with the Beatles, to his untimely death at age 29. Written with the cooperation of the Marc Bolan Fan Club and Bolan’s first wife, this book covers every corner of a blazing, too-brief life.
