The most iconic band of the UK glam rock scene of the 70s, T. Rex were formed in 1967 by singer songwriter and guitarist Marc Bolan. The band initially called Tyrannosaurus Rex, released four folk albums. 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 gained a UK popularity unseen since 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 the top 5 in the US.
