Rest in Peace Marc Bolan

Rest in Peace Marc Bolan (30 September 1947 - 16 September 1977).

Nobody has this kind of sound anymore.

Note prominent mention of Druids in his first real breakthrough single, "Ride a White Swan" (1970).

I used to listen to his albums when I was at West Point in the 1980s. I didn't really know anything about Marc Bolan -- I just knew that his music rocked. Here are a couple other favorites. There are way too many to list here.

"Teenage Dream" (1974).
