I’ve loved Get It On since the first time I heard it, and during college one of my fraternity brothers and I had a running joke about loving T. Rex because we seemed to be the only two in the House who knew who T. Rex were. But until today I’m not sure I’ve heard a T. Rex song other than Get It On. I genuinely, really enjoyed Electric Warrior, and I’ll definitely be coming back to T. Rex again this year. I was quite surprised by how much I thought they sounded like David Bowie, but that now seems obvious in retrospect.

This is not necessarily related to T. Rex, but I found this while on their Wikipedia page todayΒ and it isΒ the best visualization of band member timelines I’ve ever seen:

I’ve looked at a lot of Wikipedia pages for bands while listening to their albums this year. This should be on all pages with a high band turnover. Santana’s “Best of” album famously includes a timeline of the band members and where they went after the band inside the CD album art booklet. A weirdly high number of band members disappeared or died while in the band. I just checked and their page has a similar timeline that is completely bananas.
