'Paytress is a literate and analytical writer and this is the best biography produced on Bolan so far. There are revealing interviews from a wide circle of acquaintances, dead and alive, revealing everything you need to know about the elfin one, his mind, his music and his mentors.' MOJO 'Paytress contextualises Bolan with more detail and more breadth than any other book. Even if you have the 1992 book, get this new one. It's a significantly longer and more detailed volume, with many new photos, an updated discography, and new input from two important players in Bolan's life - his partner Gloria Jones and his personmal assistant Mick Gray. There is also a worthwhile 'whatever happenend to' section, which reveals what became of many of the people mentioned throughout...To his credit, Paytress achieves a good balance, refusing to along with the simple-minded cynicism of former manager Simon Napier Bell and Pete Jenner...it's a fascinating read, and indispensible for anyone interested in one of the true characters of English rock music.'
