Marc Bolan with Paul McCartney (via Marc Bolan FB).
John Lennon and Paul McCartney were T. Rex fans? I literally got a chill up my spine reading this just now…
John Lennon: "In today’s pop music, there are only two things that interest me: rock ‘n’ roll and avant-garde poetry. Only one group today is of interest to me, Marc Bolan and T.Rex.
He is the only one who has excited me and I look forward to meet him again. His music is good rock ‘n’ roll; it has good beat and it really swings. But it is mainly his lyrics that amaze me. His way of writing is new and I have never read lyrics as funny and as real as his.
Apart from few American exceptions, Marc Bolan is the only one that has caught my attention and I believe his mythology is real as well. He will release a book of poetry in the near future and I look forward to read it again and again. Marc Bolan is the only one who can succeed to The Beatles.”
