16th Sept 1977, 29-year-old former T Rex singer Marc Bolan was killed instantly when the car driven by his girlfriend, Gloria Jones, left the road and hit a tree in Barnes, London. Miss Jones broke her jaw in the accident. The couple were on the way to Bolan's home in Richmond after a night out at a Mayfair restaurant.
I once met a close friend of Marc and he showed me some of their letters that they sent to one another and I felt so honoured. You changed my life and opened my mind to a new way of thinking. Thanks for the memories Marc.
