      Some Older Zines

      Seeing the Marc Bolan fanzine holds such an important place in the Fans history I think that all these guys deserve a BOW for helping to keep the Bolan fans -scattered worldwide- in contact during those lean years (before the internet *s) Who knows if we find ways of writing/contacting them they might restart them (some were just lovely) This list is just a few of them .........!
      So help keep the Current Fanzines (above) that are still active alive as part of our -the Fans- Legacy to Marc -

      About The T.O.M.B.

      The T.O.M.B. is compiled and maintained by Rickster, Ruzz & Sage as a sub-section to the Till Dawn Org.Website R & R with the help of fans and friends from the growing Marc Bolan & T.REX internet community. What initaially started out MANY years ago as an innocent Title (a Play on the Words the T-the.O-fficial.M-arc.B-olan. Centre) as a bit of fun. In the past 7 years we have watched the net become -in some sad instances- a place of rivalry and attempts at "owning our Dear Marc's Name" that is NOT the case here -in 1996 we never even thought the net would take off, as it has, let alone become a centre point for Marc Bolan fans - Marc isn't here and he surly has NOT given us nor anyone the permssion to call their site *OFFICIAL WEBSITES -with that said for us what was just a bit of fun that eventually went into all the search engines as well as the Magazine Articles that refer to us can't be stopped nor should it now (there is still some room I hope for fun) We would not be pompus enough to think that we or *anyone has Marc's Blessing with that said call yourself what you will -hopefully in the same spirit- but above all just keep the sites informative and free of division and attempts at owning something that none of us could nor should try and own the GIFT of Marc's Music ....Thats all Folks *s Thanks to all that have supplied links to our site and other information promoting T.O.M.B. (Especially a Nod goes out to Guitar Player, Record Collector Magazine, Q/Mojo Zine, & the re-vised Mark Paytress Book for mentioning us )- It is our honor to do this work & keep the name Marc Bolan thriving on the internet Russ & Rick.

      A special thanks to ALL the good people in the Bolan community for extending their hands in friendship with the new updates -Rickster.
