1977: Did Marc Bolan predict his own death?
Additionally, there’s a spooky line from Bolan’s song Solid Gold Easy Action: ‘Easy as picking foxes from a tree.’ The numberplate of Gloria Jones’s Mini was FOX 661L.
Fallon continues: “So I went to the tree. The tree the Mini had run into. There was all this glass on the ground, nobody had bothered to clear it up, and already people had started leaving notes and messages. There was no one there apart from me. Then this girl appeared. She was gorgeous.
“I found myself chatting her up. I could imagine Marc saying: ‘For fuck’s sake, there he goes, he’s standing right where I died, by the tree, and he’s chatting up a bird.’ People may lose their physical continuity but it doesn’t mean you have to lose them.”
