" When a young life ends abruptly, its energy will surely want to live on in the environment where it once stood. Embrace Marc's eternal light and help share it with the many generations to come... May the legend of Marc Bolan live forever!" Our deepest respects, TooREX - The UK Tribute to Marc Bolan's T.REX
We just can't believe a whole year has just passed by since we lost our dear pal Alvin! We all miss him so. We always ended up having many a fab evening with him and his epic band at our joint shows, with Alvin telling us his many stories of life on the road as a 1970's superstar back in the day... Also he and Marc were very close pals and he always told us how Marc was "one of the nicest guys he'd ever met." We can sure say that about you Alvin!Here's a never seen before pic of Alvin with his personal bodyguard, none other than our own TooREX drummer Steevi's DAD! ('Roy the Boy' ) On this particular night in 1974, Alvin jumped offstage into a seething mass of fans, Roy was mortified but went headlong straight after him and calmly rescued Alvin from the hysterical girls (who had by now dragged Alvin to the floor!) Steevi mentioned to Alvin about the below photo, and the tour he was on, and we know he was very keen to see it as he remembers that night clearly! He said "Steevi, it was extremely frightening!, Your Dad saved my neck!"We sadly never managed to get the photo to him in time as it was tucked away in a loft. But finally, here it is...
Remember Jim Beck Week- The Yardbirds , Grimsby concert 2015May 8th 2007 was a sad day for many.Since we lost our good friend and 'Marc Bolan super- fan' Jim Beck, we'djust like to take a special moment to remember him...If you didn't have the pleasure to have met this sparkly star, trust us... he was a gem!. We'd also like to thank his family and friends for their ever constant contact, kind support and friendship, and hope that the week ahead for everyone is full of good memories of a very special chap indeed. We know that our ethos is to pay tribute to the great man himself, Marc Bolan... this, we believe, also includes his ever loyal fans....Lova ya Jimbo!!

"It's not length of life, but depth of life.."
Thirty-seven years on to the day, MARC BOLAN - still living in the hearts of many. May your memory always be a blessing...
Love TooREX - The Musical Tribute To Marc Bolan.
A very big thanks to our dear pals Marc and Gordon aka Strange Orchestra for joining us on this wonderful new annual party in April at one of our fave venues -The Half Moon...
The show was a complete sellout and was rammed as usual. Looks like we're gonna have to do TWO nights to get the folk in that were turned away. Lovely audience, windy and wild and just how it should be.
Thanks again everyone, special thanks to Half Moon's Carrie and Abbie as always.
Just a quick thankyou to all the T.REX fans that still love Marc's music after all these years! Especially to those that also find enjoyment in sharing in TooREX's passionate attempts to bring these wonderful evergreens of magic to the live stage, although easier said than done! We love playing them, we love playing them to you, Marc's loyal fans that wanna help keep the 'main man's' music alive. So, we need to thank you all for your continued support, and friendship over the years, and wish you all a spiritual Christmas and a splendid Golden New Year. See you at a venue near you, somewhere in 2013!! Keep warm, keep safe and always keep a little Marc in your hearts! Best Wishes to each and everyone, Bobby, Zapper, Steevi, JR and Eden XXXX

Apologies to all those that were turned away at the door - if only we could have found more room we would have- next time eh?
Special thanks for all the folk that stayed the extra day to see us, this is all duly noted and very appreciated as you could so easily have headed home soon after the 16th. We also want to thank all the amazing Marc fans that also travelled from the four corners of the world that also stayed till Saturday to see TooREX, we wish you all safe passage home wherever you live with our love.
Anyway, hope to see some of you again soon to celebrate Marc's 30th Birthday 'Gathering by the Green with TooREX'
