I was curious if any genealogists had tackled the ancestry of musician Mark Feld, whose stage name was Marc Bolan. He was born in London on September 30, 1947 to Simeon/Sid Feld and Phyllis Winifred Atkins. He died in a car accident in London on September 16, 1977. At the time of his death, he was still legally married to June Child, now also deceased, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Child. However, he was separated from June, and was living with Gloria Jones, by whom he had a son named Rolan Seymour Feld (who also performs under the name Bolan), born September 26, 1975 in London.
Marc Bolan's press releases deliberately fabricated his family origins, so it would be interesting to learn if anyone ever tackled this mystery!

which discusses Marc Bolan's career, and would like to add a feature about his genealogy if possible. Thanks for your interest!
