T. Rex were a British rock band, formed in 1967 by singer/songwriter and guitarist Marc Bolan. The band formed as Tyrannosaurus Rex, releasing four underground folk albums under the name. Tony Visconti (their producer for several albums) claimed in a documentary on the band that he had taken to using the abbreviated term “T. Rex” as a shorthand, something that initially irritated Bolan, who gradually came around to the idea and officially shortened the band’s name to “T. Rex” at roughly the same time they started having big hits (shortly after going electric).
