“I feel there is a curse on rock stars. I honestly feel it could all end tomorrow. Not just the band thing – I mean life.” Marc Bolan
Marc Bolan loved cars. Cars ruled his life. It was a car that took him away to rock star nirvana… the irony? Marc Bolan couldn’t drive. The idea of driving scared him to death. He also famously told his manager he would like to die in a Mini. His wish came true.
On 16 September 1977, Bolan was riding in a Mini 1275GT driven by his girlfriend, Gloria Jones, after missing a curve on a bridge near southwest London, the car struck a fence post and then a tree. Bolan was killed instantly, while Jones suffered a broken arm and broken jaw.
