At Lunch in the George & Pilgrims Inn, Glastonbury (the oldest purpose built Inn in the South West of England) Club Members not only dined with T-Rex Drummer Paul Fenton and Rob Benson (T-Rex the Band lead singer), but were joined by the Mother of Anton, the little boy who inspired the song Spaceball Richochet as well as Arch Druid for Stonehenge Rollo Maughfling and Hon. Arch Druidess of the Glasontbury Order of Druids Victoria Marsden.
Then after Glowwork talks and plans for the quest the group headed to Stonehenge for TAG's Exclusive, Booking of the World Heritage Site for an Accoustic Performance by Paul Fenton and Rob Benson, Poetry Readings from Marc's Warlock of Love book. Paul Fenton delighted all by reading his poem dedicated to Marc 'The Enchanter'. There was then a Druid Ceremony dedicated to all the members of T-Rex who have passed over: Marc Bolan; Steve Took; Steve Currie and Dino Dines and also Marc's Widow June Bolan (Nee Child) as the sun set and the clouds turned magical shades of golds, oranges, through to pinks and purples. Astoundingly, on the way to Glastonbury the traffic on the motorway was completely halted by a White Swan sitting in the road. As our coach arrived, the swan stood up did a little 'dance' before walking to the 'hard shoulder'!
Everyone returned to London tied but happy, particularly as the performance by Paul Fenton and Rob Benson had "the hairs on the back of club members necks standing on end" because of Rob Benson's amazing ability to sing like Marc. He really is second to none!! After the Stonehenge Event, everyone traveled back to London tired but ecstatic. On the way we toasted Marc & the other Members of T-Rex who have passed over with chilled Champagne which was a gift from Paul Fenton.
