This amazing shirt celebrates Marc Bolan, a pioneer of the glam rock movement of the 1970s, and the late frontman of the band T. Rex. This shirt includes a portrait of Bolan, and the title of one of his early songs "You Scare Me to Death", which he first recorded in 1966.
That year, Bolan showed up on the doorstep of record producer Simon Napier-Bell, who had previously managed the bands the Yardbirds and John's Children. Bolan came with his guitar in hand, proclaiming he was going to be a big star, and Napier-Bell invited him in to prove it. He later arranged a recording session for Bolan, although almost all of these tracks weren't released until several years later. Some of them made it on to the 1974 album The Beginning of Doves, while the rest remain tucked away until after Bolan's death.
While his initial releases didn't gain much attention, Bolan eventually found success with his psychedelic folk band, Tyrannosaurus Rex. This group eventually evolved into T. Rex, a band that helped to launch the glam rock movement, particularly with their album Electric Warrior. Bolan performed and recorded with the group right up until his death in 1977. A posthumous album titled, You Scare Me to Death was released several years later by the record label Cherry Red. The record was produced by Simon Napier-Bell and it consisted of the unused demos and outtakes that he had helped Bolan to record back in 1966.
The tag says medium but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult small.
