Présentation de l'éditeur

Marc Bolan was the very first superstar of the 1970s. As the seductive focus of T. Rex he revelled in fame and fortune, released a string of classic records before tragically losing his way. The fatal car accident in 1977 cut short his planned comeback as a punk rocker, but also served to fix Bolan as the definitive icon of the Glam years.

Bolan's music and chameleonic style were to influence a generation of future bands. In his various guises he could be a beatnik, a mod, a punk, a hippie and a Glam hero. This biography of a pop obsessive draws from interviews with many friends and colleagues including broadcaster John Peel, brother Harry and band members Mickey Finn and Bill Legend.

L'écriture est intense, l'auteur s'est énormément documenté auprès des connaissances de marc Bolan, amis, ennemis, des articles de presse, des médias de l'époque, de ses proches. A condition de parler l'anglais, ce livre est excellent ! La montée dramatique ne prend jamais le pas sur l'enquête journalistique, mais il n'y a pas non plus un excès de froideur qui nuirait forcément à une biographie, sachant que l'on ne lit ce genre de livres que si on est fan de l'artiste concerné !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bolan, from 1960s "ace face" to 1970s T Rex superstardom 1 juin 2004
Par M. Bromberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a well-researched, detailed biography. Paytress captures the excitement developing in 1960s Britain as the mod scene sweeps Mark Feld -- a sometime photo model and guitar-strumming minstrel with an obsession for Dylan and Donovan -- into the role of a self-made rock'n'roll icon. It's not a smooth transition. Often ignored and put-down in his earliest efforts, Bolan eventually finds success through the support of radio maverick John Peel; his subsequent rise to stardom, fame, and the eventual excesses that lead to failure is the stuff of countless rock biographies. What sets Paytress's book apart from the usual sad story is Bolan's star-making drive -- first as a brash upstart and self-promoter, then as a performer whose real talent lay in crafting the perfect three-minute pop song. The book goes a great way to renovating Bolan's tarnished image as a 70s rock'n'roll curiosity, and while his work may not be the equal of his contemprary David Bowie, Bolan was as much a craftsman in image and music as Ziggy himself. Paytress writes the T Rex story with a blast of glam energy from start to finish.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Re-vised & even more detailed and insightful ! 13 août 2006
Par Rickster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Mark Payress's original book from 1992 has long been consider by many in the Bolan community as the "Bolan Bible" Ok their words not mine but is surly was the most detailed and well researched book at the time.

I had hoped Mark would one day find the time to update the book as Marc Bolan as an icon and respected musical figure has grown by leaps and bounds since then, along with a new treasure trove of unearthed material that had been locked away.

That in itself was enough to update the book but also on the personal side of Marc's life the past 10 years saw Marc's only son Rolan come into his own and in turn opened the doors for other family members to add to the Bolan story.

This truly is a MUST Have book for any Bolan Fan

Format:Broché
This sumptuous biography of Marc's career covers countless angles with a number of classic key interviews. Pride of place must go to Paytress' evocation of the 60s and mod culture in general. Although he clearly admires and respects Bolan it is refreshingly objective in places and very well written.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 excellent account of bolan's life 5 août 2005
Par Stephen F Mulcahy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
marc bolan expert mark paytress has produced a superb revised edition of this definitive account of the life of the t. rex star. bolan's childhood, his various early bands like john's children and solo outings, his hippie- era career with tyrannosaurus rex and the far more popular t. rex, and his interactions with other famous performers like david bowie, elton john, and ringo starr are explored with great detail and informative tidbits of trivia. while not every recording of bolan's was meritorious or interesting, paytress describes all facets and periods of bolan's all too brief life with clarity, depth, and fascination. this is the best chronicle of bolan's carreer to date, and is a superbly readable and engaging book on this diverse performer, a musician whose very best work( quite a bit of the tyrannosaurus rex stuff, the early 70's albums ELECTRIC WARRIOR and THE SLIDER, and singles like CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION and 20TH CENTURY BOY),are first rate recordings. important colleagues and supporters like producer tony visconti and legendary british d.j. john peel offer illuminating testimononials and insights. a fascinating reminder of a vital British artist who provided some of the best late 60's / early 70's rock, and whose catalogue remains quite underrated in the U.S.A.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Marc Bolan's story will touch your heart. 29 avril 2013
Par Deborah Beltran - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have read many articles and other books about Marc Bolan but this version I the one I read over and over again. His story reveals some of the often unrecognized and unappreciated details about the trials a person undergoes in their career and personal life. I think you will find yourself identifying with him like you would if you had been there watching and listening. It is truly tragic, yet inspiring at the same time. I believe that his music did not get the chance it deserved. I like to listen to some of his albums while I read this book and it really brings out the message that this man gave his all to his music, each and every step of the way, please read it!
