T Rex began as a two piece group with Marc Bolan and percussionist Steve Peregrin Took the duo originally experimenting with eccentric mythical folk music. Influenced and helped by DJ John Peel they enjoyed modest success during 1968 on radio and record releasing three LPs and a single “Deborah” which reached No34 in the charts. In October 1969 due to songwriting rifts Bolan sacked Took and replaced him with Mickey Finn (percussion) later adding band members ; Bill Legend (drums) / Steve Currie (bass) and thereby creating the classic lineup of T Rex.
