Born 70 years ago and just months apart in Stoke Newington and Brixton, Marc Bolan and David Bowie turned the world of popular music upside down. Sharing a trajectory that took them from shiny-booted mods to androgynous troubadours, Bolan and Bowie would finally strike gold as fully-fledged glam rock superstars in the early 1970s. Forty years on from Bolan’s tragic death in a car crash, Paul Morley, arts commentator and author of The Age of Bowie, joins writer Travis Elborough to discuss their parallel pop lives and their enduing cultural legacies.Buy tickets
