20th Century Boy archive20th Century Boy is a celebration of the life of Marc Bolan and his band T.Rex. Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam, godfather of punk - Marc Bolan tried many styles on for size in his search to become a superstar. Before his tragic death in 1977, a few days short of his 30th birthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed, creating a series of iconic images, a string of number one hits and an army of obsessive fans. This dynamic new musical looks behind the glitter and the sequins to discover what drove the "bard of Hackney" to become "bigger than the Beatles". Packed with 70's hits including Ride a White Swan, Metal Guru, Get It On, I Love To Boogie, Children of the Revolution and of course the title track 20th Century Boy!


Author: Peter Rowe (in association with Gary Lloyd based on an original idea by Brian Dunham and Colin Giffin and Nicky Graham)
