Diane: So do you want to talk about Electric Warrior?
Marc: Yeah, it was the first work that expressed who I was and wanted to be. I could now start doing the music that I wanted.
Diane: So the Tyrannosaurus Rex band was more or less a stepping stone to T Rex?
Marc: Yes in a way. It also helped me gain knowledge and experience in the music industry – playing live in front of an audience. It is how I really wet my feet.
Diane: So you recorded that album in several different countries? What was that experience like for you?
Marc: Exciting man….really exciting. It was like I’d been in a cocoon for so long – wanting to burst out and show who I truly was inside.
Diane: Do you have any favorite songs off that album?
Marc: Well I still think Get It On was one of my best. I really have fond memories of all of them.
Diane: Anything else you want to say?
Marc: Well that was a very exciting time for me as Marc….doing the tour….the concerts. The day to day traveling wasn’t the greatest high for me but playing in front of the audiences was! Everywhere we went was a sell out. I wish that I could have ridden THAT high for longer – had that success. It was a big learning time for me as well. I could really see my potential as Marc – see just how far I could push this whole thing. It started to go in the wrong direction at times – the ego. It was really a great time for me. Riding the T Rex high in the early days. Can’t beat it for wonderful memories!
Diane: It sounds like it was a time of discovery for you.
Marc: Yeah…that’s right. I could really start to see that all my dreams were starting to come true. There was a light in the distance that had been dim for so long – but it was getting closer.
Diane: Looking back, is there anything you would change about that time?
Marc: No…not much. I had some personal relationships that were starting to take different directions but musically….I think that was one of my greatest times. It was a lot of fun and a wonderful journey being Marc at that time.
