EVERYONE'S BORN TO DIE
Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! For many reasons, today [16th September 2010] is a special day to this writer. In particular, it is now thirty three  years since the tragic death of Marc Bolan. Marc - of course - featured on three  songs in ELO's third album, the aptly named "On The Third Day" . They were "Ma Ma Ma Belle", "Dreaming Of 4000" and "Everyone's Born To Die".
The above photograph was taken by Gary Merrin at Watford Town Hall on Tuesday 10th April 1973 and features Marc guesting on stage with the band. Marc would have been 63 years of age on 30th September 2010. One of THE best guitar riffs ever [in my opinion] is that which is found on "Ride A White Swan". And "Ma Ma Ma Belle" is one of my all time fave ELO tracks. These two  artistes were a good fit and still compliment each other nicely.
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 16-Sep-2010
