The story of T. Rex’s Marc Bolan is one of those rock n’ roll fables that seems so trite that it MUST have been written by some second-rate Hollywood screenwriter. The truth, however, is that Marc Bolan’s tale serves as the BASIS for these overused rock clichés, as he led a wild (and unfortunately short) life full of fame, excess, pageantry, and incredible music. This week, we’re joined by actor and musician Danny Tamberelli to dive into the history of the Godfather of Glam Rock. Together, we try to figure out how “Bang A Gong (Get It On)” was T. Rex’s only US hit, considering The Beatles themselves claim that T-Rextasy was bigger than Beatlemania ever was in the UK. If you like the show, be sure to rate, review, and subscribe.
