The most iconic band of the U.K. glam rock scene of the ’70s, T. Rex were the creation of Marc Bolan, who started out as a cheerfully addled acolyte of psychedelia and folk-rock until he turned to swaggering rock & roll with boogie rhythm and a tricked-up fashion sense. For a couple years, T. Rex were the biggest band in England and a potent cult item in the United States. If their stardom didn’t last, their influence did, and T. Rex’s dirty but playful attitude and Bolan’s sense of style and rock star moves would show their influence in metal, punk, new wave, and alternative rock.
T. Rex were an English glam rock band, formed in 1967 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Marc Bolan. The band was initially called Tyrannosaurus Rex, and released four folk albums under this banner. In 1970, Bolan began to make a shift from basing his band’s sound around an acoustic guitar to basing it around an electric one and shortened their name to T. Rex. “Ride a White Swan” coincided with this change and instantly became a commercial success. From 1970 until 1973, T. Rex encountered a popularity in the UK unseen since the demise of The Beatles, with a run of 11 singles ranked in the UK top ten. 1971’s Electric Warrior received sustained critical acclaim as a pioneering album of glam rock. It reached the number 1 position in the UK. The follow-up, 1972’s The Slider, allowed the band to enter in the top 5 in the US. At the end of 1973, T. Rex started to have less commercial success but kept on recording one album per year.
In 1977, Bolan died in a car accident a couple of months after releasing their final studio album Dandy in the Underworld. Since then, T. Rex have continued to exert a vast influence on a variety of subsequent artists.
