This is an amazing journey of one man's ambition and determination to bring to the people the sounds, the performance, the songs, the stage craft, and the imagery of his lifetime musical hero: The 1970s Glam Rock superstar Marc Bolan of T.Rex, who died in an untimely car accident on 16th September 1977 at only 29 years old.
Danielz, the founder member of T.Rextasy, writes honestly and memorably from his teenage years as a Bolan fan watching T.Rex in concert. Then later striving to make it with his own original material. Recording with members of Gary Numan's band, Alex Harvey's, Ozzy Osbourne's, Iron Maiden, and others, through to his years in the most successful, credible, and endorsed live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan, recognised as the world's only
official Marc Bolan tribute - T.REXTASY.
Read about his exploits; the gigs, the countries, and the people he has met along the way: Slade, The Sweet, Ian Hunter (Mott The Hoople), Cockney Rebel, Ray Dorset (Mungo Jerry), Marc Almond (Soft Cell), Clem Burke (Blondie), Alvin Stardust, Linda Lewis, The Damned, Shakin' Stevens, and of course, T.Rex, Tony Visconti, Gloria Jones & Rolan Bolan.
