T. Rex - Rules from the grave

How T. Rex got their band name - Tyrannosaurus RexThis London formation, that excels in glam rock, was created by Mark Bolan, and it was called in full Tyrannosaurus Rex. That was not to emphasize that this was a really great band, but it was because Bolan was awed by this the largest variant of the predatory dinosaurs.

Bolan's respect goes back to his childhood, when in the Natural History Museum in London he bumped into the skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex exposed there. The skeleton won.
