Good stuff.

I found two cool T. Rex clips on youtube, for Children of the Revolution (w Elton John and Ringo, no less) and Ride a White Swan, I posted them here:

There's another youtube of Ride a White Swan from 1976 that's pretty sad. It's from a television show, he's cut his fro off and looks bloated. He actually rides onstage on a giant white swan:

Must be "like minds..." These were posted here at TVD for the anniversary of Marc's untimely passing in September. Good (?) stuff...!

Ah, I just looked up your Sept post. Nice one.

Definitely some good stuff in your archives, as well as stuff from King (saw them live? for shame, sir).

Keep up the good work, man.
