Happy Birthday Marc ‘Glam’ Bolan

He was the original glam rock star, parading around London wearing feather boas, cheekbones covered with glitter. But did you know he used to be a model? He briefly joined a modelling agency, appearing in a clothing catalogue for the menswear store. He was a model for the suits in their catalogues as well as for cardboard cut-outs to be displayed in shop windows. “TOWN” magazine featured him as an early example of the mod movement in a photo spread with two other models.

It would have been his 65th birthday on 30th of September and I wonder what would Hackney-born Marc think walking through the streets of his hood these days. I reckon he would love all the hipsters! 8)

Here he is with T-Rex performing the awesome ‘Children of the revolution’
