We hide behind the masks of the Orient, because the sullen lumbering shapes of the western world strike fear and terror into our limbs, and all is ungrown. Legends we long for and legends there are in the east of our heads. So perchance Gods dwell unseen in the east of the world.
- Marc Bolan, Warlock of Love
September 30th, 2007 is Marc Bolan's 60th birthday.
Look how small he was; the white Strat dwarfs him. One of the finest rhythm guitarists ever. Chuck Berry's nose for a hook. Lyrics from beyond the Seas of Abyssinia. A stud, a lamb, the thoughts of a tiger. Leaps like a cat. Keep on boppin', Marc!
