Marc Bolan & Alan Warren's Home
Home to Marc for six to eight months in 1964 with Allen Warren
Location: Somerset House 79-81, Lexham Gardens
Description: As this is so close to Tony Visconti's home at 108 Lexham Gardens, Bolan fans will probably want to visit this address where Bolan lived for six to eight months in 1964 when Allen Warren became his manager.
Warren recalled: He took over one of the bedrooms, a huge room, & he'd always sit in the same spot by the fireplace with his books & guitar... In the daytime, Marc would sit in the drawing room with the curtains closed & the light on.
For him, the night never ended & the day never started... Now listed as a Set of 13 flats/apartments known as: Somerset House 79-81, Lexham Gardens
