  1. You know, I still remember like it was yesterday hearing about this car accident and Bolan’s death. I was in the cafeteria of my high school, and one of my friends (who was living and breathing for Marc Bolan and T Rex) came running up to me to tell me the news. I was stunned and so sad. Still a great loss, all these many years later.

  2. Sad day. I remember hearing the news when I was in high school – walked into the school cafeteria and my friend Nanci was in tears. She told me what happened. I was a T Rex fan, but Nanci worshipped Bolan. I’ll never forget that moment.
