Fee of Steve Took's Domain is pleased to be able to tell you all that Video footage of STEVE TOOK PERFORMING in TYRANNOSAURUS REX (with Marc Bolan) will be included!
Part of an interview with Marc Bolan from 9th September 1977 where he talks of getting Steve Took and Mickey Finn to appear with him for this 30th Birthday 'Party' on October 8th. The party didn't happen because Marc Bolan died exactly one week after this interview.
A Bolan Fanzine has given a mention to the Steve Took's CD 'Blow It!!!' and describes the sixteen page booklet as containing "An Essential Reading Biography" !!!
STEVE TOOK PLAQUE
TAG (T-Rex Action Group') who are the Guardians of 'Marc Bolan's Rock Shrine' and Legal Owners of 'The Bolan Tree' in Barnes, London have now put up a 'Mock-Up' image showing the location of the Memorial Plaques which will be installed on the steps laid by TAG in 2000, on TAG's land between the PRS Memorial & 'The Bolan Tree'.
These Memorial Plaques are to remember those members of T-Rex who have passed over. One of the Memorial Plaques will, or course be for Tookie - Bolan's original partner in Tyrannosaurus Rex, in recognition of the tremendous input Steve Took had in making The Duo a success. Tookie's plaque will be on the Top Step and will be 9 inches (225mm) x 6 inches (150mm). You can find out more information by visiting Here
While visiting Boss Goodman he told me that after Marc & June Bolan left their Blenheim Crescent flat in Ladbroke Grove a friend of Boss's moved in. When he left Boss moved in! He described how small the flat was and how it was lacking in cooking facilities.
