Music Monday Goes Glam

Posted by on Mon, September 30th, 2013 at 12:00 pm

Happy Birthday, Marc Bolan!

The lead singer for ’70s glam-rock band T Rex was born on this day in 1947.  Marc Bolan and T Rex are most known for the song “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” which peaked on the US Billboard Pop Singles chart at #10 in January 1972.  Bolan was killed in a car accident on 16th September 1977.

Since everyone knows “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” today’s track is the lesser known “Jeepster”.  This 1971 single and its B-side, “Life’s a Gas”, are taken from the group’s second album Electric Warrior.
