Saw the death of Marc Bolan, who at the time, was probably a bigger name than his mate David Bowie. Imagine if he had lived.

Not 100% sure, but I think at the time there was a rumor he had predicted his own death !

Was his last big hit a sycamore tree
[/QUOTE

Apparently it was only a mini hit and there’s a rumour he’d having been better off riding a white swan

( quips aside rip Marc who knows where his unique talent and charismatic ability would have taken him too )

Well past his best when he died and his career was already on the slide.
Was a man of his generation in the early 70s and in the right place at the right time.
A true legend and had some real classics

Why's that Bluey?
Glam was on its last legs when he died and all his hits were early 70s.
Music had a massive diversity late 70s but it wasn't Glam
