Roaring success for T Rex

There was no phoning it in when it came to this roaring success!

T Rex went to Number One in the UK with 'Telegram Sam'.

Their third hit claimed the top spot on this day (5th Feb) back in 1972.

It came off their album "Slider".

Marc and co were credited with bringing back the term "main man" with this one.
