Marc Bolan was the very first superstar of the 1970s. As the seductive focus of T. Rex he revelled in fame and fortune released a string of classic records before tragically losing his way. The fatal car accident in 1977 cut short his planned comeback as a punk rocker but also served to fix Bolan as the definitive icon of the Glam years. Bolan's music and chameleonic style were to influence a generation of future bands. In his various guises he could be a beatnik a mod a punk a hippie and a Glam hero. This biography of a pop obsessive draws from interviews with many friends and colleagues including broadcaster John Peel brother Harry and band members Mickey Finn and Bill Legend.
