"Ride a White Swan" was quickly followed by a second single, " Hot Love ", which reached the top spot on the UK charts, and remained there for six weeks. A full band, which featured bassist Steve Currie and drummer Bill Legend , was formed to tour to growing audiences, as teenagers began replacing the hippies of old.  After Chelita Secunda added two spots of glitter under Bolan's eyes before an appearance on Top of the Pops , the ensuing performance would often be viewed as the birth of glam rock. After Bolan's display, glam rock would gain popularity in the UK and Europe during 1971–72. T. Rex's move to electric guitars coincided with Bolan's more overtly sexual lyrical style and image. The group's new image and sound outraged some of Bolan's older hippie fans, who branded him a " sell-out ". Some of the lyrical content of Tyrannosaurus Rex remained, but the fairy tales about wizards and magic were now interspersed with sensuous grooves, replete with orgiastic moans and innuendo.
While we know that there’s nothing like a nice vintage, maybe Bronze Age-era wine would be a bit too full-bodied. But to my fellow Italian-Americans (and Italians all over the world), I say salute !
That obviously wasn’t the case here. But let this serve as a reminder that everything with a lithium-based rechargeable battery has the potential to burst into flames. We’ve seen this with the infamous “ hoverboards ,” Samsung Galaxy Note 7 , vapes , Fitbits , and even fidget spinners .
Congratulations to all of our
hardworking cast and crew for
a well earned award and our loyal
fans for a whole lotta Hot Love .
In 2008, Freaky Trigger placed "Metal Guru" at number 37 in their list of "The Top 100 Songs of All Time". 
After releasing their first album in the same year, founding member and creative force Syd Barrett left the band in 1968, amid speculation over his mental health. With new recruit David Gilmour, the band went on to further successes including landmark albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall.
