Marc Bolan

Man of the moment
I am a big fan of the music of Marc Bolan. Watching his videos, I can't help thinking he was a man of the moment. The last of the glam rockers in a time of change for the music industry.

When I see the later videos from Germany, I can't help thinking that the high life took its toll quickly - gone is the tight, lithe body to be replaced by the aging rocker image; in a way it was fortunate, his death came at the time it did. I don't think the fans would have liked to see Marc as the aging rocker he was becoming.
