T.Rex 'Children Of The Revolution' - YouTube
How could I not like ?
I have every one of T-Rex' singles (7", 45rpm), all bought as they were released ...
Thanks for your reply. Mm is "Get it on" too a song from T-Rex?
I love the T-Rex, although their career went on much too long.
Not sure what you mean?
He died in a car crash before he was 30.
Or is it a joke about the dinosaur T Rex
What I was amazed to hear was that his son emigrated to the USA with his widowed mother as a young child and had no idea about how hugely famous and revered his father was in England until when he was in his late teens.
Will - is this Marc Bolan? - I did not know that he had died
He was killed in 1977 when the mini he was being driven in hit a tree less the a mile from his home. He was just short of his 30th birthday.
Jeepster was one of the first "records" I bought way back when. Ride a White Swan was one of my favourites!
His and Bowies records are the sounds of my teenage years. Along with The Stones, Bad Company, Ace, 10cc, Cockney Rebel, Alex Harvey, and etc.
For a laugh at parties we also listened to Slade :big grin: Sweet, Garry Glitter, Suzy Quatro, Mud lol, etc.
Thanks for the replies!
I think we must be about the same age Will - that's roll call from my youth too.
in the UK for a short visit - can't wait to get back to France
listening to "Ride a White Swan" now with the kids, (aged 25 and 29), who have never heard of him
I suppose we must be Olli. Im 52!
What a wonderful thing, to hear ride a White swan for the first time. I'm jealous of them
