    T Rex

    I have a photo of Marc Bolan from T Rex that I took at his concert in Melbourne in about 1974. And its not for sale.

    ....oh, okay, then perhaps instead you'd accept money just to stop being so constantly and pointlessly irritating?

    :pullhair:

    Btw, how old are you? I'd assumed you were about 7 and a half, but if you saw Bolan in '74 then you're probably older than I am.

    T. Rex has been a rock-n-roll staple for me since the early 70s. Here's 2 really great tunes:
    T. Rex
    Lean Woman Blues...

    Mambo Sun...

    Thank You T.Rex and Mr. Marc Bolan

    I've learned more from sitting around listening to Electric Warrior on repeat for hours and hours than I have in all of my years of schooling, just saying... It bounced me out of a depression I never thought I could get out of.

    A month or so later... One day I came home from school planning to just end it all, life took a dive-bomb and I seen no way out. I turned on receiver,cranked up the volume knob, then turned on the CD player before I sank down in my recliner contemplating...Sure enough, The Slider was the in the Disc 1 slot and Metal Guru started playing, now one of my favorite songs. The next couple of days and weeks I started putting everything back on track. Honestly, T. Rex/Marc Bolan saved my life...and Rock N Roll has many times.

    (I apologize if I am being too much of a "Drama King" and if this post needs to be removed I apologize and understand :) but I felt that this was the place to say my thanks and pay my respects to T. Rex and Mr. Bolan.)

    A few of my favorite tracks by T. Rex are Metal Guru, Mambo Sun, Cosmic Dancer, Life's A Gas, Jeepster, Planet Queen, Monolith, Buick Mackane and The Slider

    Peace and Love

    This song just feels real good: Bang a Gong

    The quote is true and thank you :) Get It On (Bang A Gong) is another favorite I forgot to mention XD.

    Also, i love the way "Jeepster" was used in the movie "Death Proof"(Quentin Tarantino's half of the "Grindhouse" double feature).
