"Yeah I met Marc's parents & they were so friendly, but the most treasured memory from meeting them was sitting with them during the showing of 'Born To Boogie'. Marc's Dad said to me that night, that it was the first time he had ever seen the whole film.......strange, but that is what he said to me!
I could go on and on about what it was like to see Marc Bolan in front of me....at the closest he must have been about a foot away, but I never touched him nor did I meet him, but got real close, as you can see. It's like a dream!!
I have been lucky enough to see most of the biggest rock stars on the planet...you name 'em!!, Queen, Elton, McCartney, Bowie, Michael Jackson, Stones, Def Leppard, Pink Floyd, Bryan Adams, God, I've seen 'em all, but....what I am trying to say...no one comes near Marc Bolan! Some played guitar better, some had better backing, most had a tighter band, but........as my great buddy says so often..."There's only one Marc Bolan"!!!!
Not one of them had the pure magic that Marc had, & that, was far more superior than the false egos that are so prevalent today. The man was pure MAGIC! UNREAL! - almost a God.... just so very special & that's why he took over my life all those years ago..."
