Being the son of a rock legend has its highs and lows, but for Rolan Bolan, son of the late glam-rocker and T-Rex frontman Marc Bolan, one of the coolest things is hanging out with other members of his unique fraternity. He’s jammed on the beach with Roy Orbison’s sons Roy Jr. and Alex, hung out with Zoey Bonham (daughter of John Bonham and sister of Jason) and has had Planet and Sierra Swan, daughters of ‘70s pop singer Billy Swan, do backup vocals for him.
Rolan was also excited a few years back when “Born to Boogie,” the Magical Mystery tour-like 1972 concert film of his dad, T-Rex and Ringo Starr at Wembley Empire Pool directed by the ex-Beatle himself, was released for the first time on DVD by Sanctuary Records. Ringo said he wouldn’t approve the project, originally released on The Beatles’ Apple Films, unless Rolan was involved. Rolan helped restore the film and presented many of the special features on the new release, which went to #1 on the DVD charts in the UK.
