#403: Hello... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! September 16th is not only a significant date for me on a personal level, this year it marks the 35th anniversary of another of my musical heroes: Marc Bolan. I am very grateful that my friend Pete Hackett from Cult of Wedge alerted me to a nice article in the latest edition of The Sunday Mercury. In the above article, Bev Bevan writes fondly about that legendary coming together of ELO and Marc Bolan both at Air Studios and later on stage at Watford Town Hall @ Tuesday 10th April 1973 thus:
Yours Truly KJS also posted this article back in 2010 on the 33rd anniversary of the death of Marc, noting also that he featured on more than one song recorded during the OTTD sessions:
