Marc Bolan and David Bowie Nearly Became Bandmate


Marc Bolan and David Bowie Nearly Became Bandmate


Producer Tony Visconti reveals that Marc Bolan and David Bowie were almost forming their own supergroup until Marc's wife didn't allow him to collaborate with Bowie.

Marc Bolan and David Bowie would have been bandmates had it not been for the T-Rex star's wife, who disliked her husband's musical pal. Legendary producer Tony Visconti has revealed Bowie and Bolan worked together in the late 1960s and came very close to forming their own supergroup.

He tells Spinner.com, "All I wanted to do was promote Marc as an electric guitarist; I thought it would have been a great coup to have him play on David's record. David was extremely happy to have Marc play on the record. After Marc had played this brilliant solo... (Bolan's wife) June just sniped at David, 'He's too good for you! He shouldn't play on your music!' and she dragged Marc out. It was one of the few times that I saw him at a loss for words."

"Marc just wanted to be a star; this was like the carpet was pulled out from under him. If Bowie had asked him to join the band, he probably would have." Instead the two became glam-rock icons in the 1970s.
