A Trip Through Ladbroke Grove
The Life and Times of Underground Hero Steve Peregrin Took by Fee Warner
Fabulous 382-page Limited Edition Numbered Colour Hardback fully printed in Colour on 150g Gloss Art Paper with satin ribbon bookmark. Steve Peregrin Took is currently most famous, (Or should that be infamous?) for being a 50/50 founding partner with Marc Bolan of Tyrannosaurus Rex. For half a century he has been written off as a drugged up loser who had his chance with Marc Bolan and missed it. This stereotyping has been further entrenched by the memories of the Notting Hill leather trouser mafia as one of his friends described them. Their excesses matched, if not exceeded those of Steve Took. These friends did him no favours, frequently gaining amusement by egging him on to be a clown.
