T. Rex, AKA the late guitarist, singer and songwriter Marc Bolan, was known for setting his surreal, sexually suggestive lyrics to a driving beat, as in this performance of "Jeepster." The singer proclaims his willingness to travel where his heart takes him: "Girl, I'm just a jeepster for your love." T. Rex was evidently something of a strutting peacock; a giant cardboard cutout of himself stands on stage and he's also shown wearing a T-shirt of himself. He clearly had a blast up there.
