Marc Bolan fondled my groin …


Old men — as Duff Cooper once wrote — forget. Most people would, I think, remember whether or not they’d ever had their groin fondled by Marc Bolan.

However, I didn’t — until this pic recently resurfaced … at which point it all came (you should pardon the expression) flooding back. Unless I miss my guess, this epic encounter took place during a 1976 Roundhouse gig by The Ramones.

Can’t recall who took the pic, but the leading suspects would have to be Joseph Stevens or Chalkie Davies.

I am, after all, the guy who’s been there, done that and gotten the T-shirt … but who gave it away rather than hang onto it for 30 years and then sell it to the V&A for a small fortune.
