The Cosmic Dancer

16 09 2011

On this day in 1977, Marc Bolan died in a car crash in the southwest London area.  His girlfriend, Gloria Jones, was driving the car that tragic evening.  Bolan was killed instantly when their car went off the road and struck a tree.  Marc was only 29.

The last year or two, I’ve found myself heavily influenced by T. Rex.  Some songs have a surprising amount of depth.  Other songs are shallow or just plain weird.  Some of the attempts by Marc at poetry are god-awful.  But the music has a groove that is missing in music the last 10-15 years.  Looking back on it, T. Rex looks like something of a pioneering act.  On the human level, it is sad that someone so young died in such a way.
