Classic Rock/Teamrock - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

T. Rex - Sunken Rags

"Marc Bolan was a huge star, but Sunken Rags is a very obscure track. It was the B-side of the T.Rex hit Children Of The Revolution. Bolan had the best B-sides anybody has ever written: B-sides that should have been A-sides. And Sunken Rags is just a great, driving rock song. I havenít a clue what the title of the song means, or the lyrics. But I loved that stream-of-consciousness thing that Bolan was doing in his lyrics. He picked words not because they meant something, but because they sounded good. And thatís what I did with Pour Some Sugar On Me."
