When Tyranasaurus Rex decided to drop accessable folk music Marc Bolan piled on the glitter. Actually, their manager gave him his frist taste of make-up for a performance on Top of the Pops and Marc never looked back. Soon after every kid in London had stream of silver glitter under they're eyes. Marc also shortened Tyranasaurus Rex to the quick and easier to say T. Rex. With the help of an electric guitar he put together one of the defining groups of glam rock music. His mile high curly mane and black eye liner captivated girls all over the world. The old fans of Tyranasaurus Rex critisized Bolan for ceasing to write tunes about dragons and instead pumping out funky, hot grooves with smokin' lyrics. Thirty years after their demise (and Bolan's untimely death) the songs are still hot and Bolan's 'venus in furs' style is still fashionably glam.
