Z's School of Hard Rocks - Lesson 8 - Marc Bolan
TIME NOW FOR THIS WEEK’S LESSON FROM Z’S SCHOOL OF HARD ROCKS.
OUR TOPIC THIS WEEK -- MARC BOLAN – FRONTMAN FOR THE GLAMROCK BAND T-REX KNOWN BEST FOR THE SONG “GET IT ON, BANG A GONG”.
TODAY’S LESSON IS NOT ABOUT MARC BOLAN’S LIFE, BUT RATHER HIS DEATH.
IT WAS THE NIGHT OF SEPTEMBER 16TH 1977. BOLAN AND GIRLFRIEND GLORIA JONES WERE IN BOLAN’S  ROLLS ROYCE.  THEY WERE HEADING HOME AFTER A NIGHT AT MORTON’S DRINKING  CLUB IN SOUTHWEST LONDON. THEY WERE LESS THAN 2 MILES FROM HOME WHEN THE CAR WENT OFF THE ROAD  AND SLAMMED INTO A SYCAMORE TREE. BOLAN WAS KILLED INSTANTLY.
PEOPLE LIKE DAVID BOWIE AND ROD STEWART CAME TO HIS FUNERAL.
AND THAT CLASS IS THIS WEEK'S LESSON IN HARD ROCKS.
