June Ellen Child was born on 23 august of 1943 in London and lived in Fulham with her sister Fiona and parents. Her father worked for W.H.Smith. She attended Holland Park Comprehensive. She worked for Veroniques, a firm of fabric importers before leaving to work for a photographer, whose studio was in the same building in Hanover Street. It was at this time she started helping out with unknown bands, such as the Yardbirds.
She became an important part of music history and a muse to some. She was the girlfriend of Pink Floyd’s singer Syd Barrett and worked in the office of Black Hill Enterprises, who managed Pink Floyd. She was the company’s receptionist. There it should be when she met another "Rock Child" Marc Bolan of Tyrannosaurus Rex. A faithful meeting that turned spontaneous into a romance. "Bolan used to hang around in our office and sit on the floor, strumming his guitar, flirting with our secretary, June, who, of course, he later married. He was a great Syd fan. I was quite fond of him. He was a big pain in the arse, of course, very full of himself. I always liked that thing where he called himself the Bolan child, this magical, mythical name. It was really from his doorbell in Ladbroke Grove. It had his name, and our secretary`s surname, Child, so it read Bolan Child and fans used to think, wow, he is the Bolan Child!" - Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour. The meeting of June and Marc will always remain in the rock’n’roll history as one of its most romantic episodes. Says Marc: “We’d known each other only a short while when I asked her home to tea late one afternoon at my parents’ prefab in Wimbledon. The sun was bright and hot. We sat with our tea on the lawn. After we had held hands there was silence for a while. Then I said, “June — I think I love you.” She replied quietly, “I feel the same way about you, Marc.”
They fell in love nearly on the spot and spent their first four nights together sleeping in June`s van. They then moved into a small cold-water flat in Notting Hill Gate in which Marc had an artist draw a picture of a Tyrannosaurus Rex upon the wall. Together they discovered worlds of myth and legends and spent hours reading the Lord of the Rings. One night June claimed to have awaked to find the picture on the wall moving and breathing. Marc swore that his own imagination had brought the creature to life and had he not the strength to divert his eyes from it; it would have devoured them both.
Since then June played an essential role in Marc` s life and career, she became not only Marc’ s wife and inspiration to many songs but his closest ally, organising gigs, co-ordinating media relations, typing lyrics for him, but most important, always supporting him in all of his endeavours. June always offer Marc an honest critic to his songs and lyrics. June often recalled later: "It was a wonderful time. We were very happy."
After Steve Took’ s separation from Tyrannosaurus Rex and going musically his own independent way, June encouraged Marc to give his new discovery Mickey Finn a try. She thought both of them were very beauty and would be a great band convincing in their style and appearance.
June and Marc got finally married on January 30th in 1970 at the Kensington Registry. So her name changed into June Bolan btw. June Feld. Only five close friends were witness of the marriage: Mickey Finn and his girlfriend Sue Worth, ex-mod Jeff Dexter, June’ s friend Alice Ormsby-Gore and Pete Sanders, all dressed in the earthy hippie outfits of that season.
One faithful evening June got her frustrated husband to write another great song, which finally made it and became the hit he needed, the first of ten straight top ten hits. Ride a White Swan.
She loved Marc’s music and even blamed David Bowie in 1970. Marc joined David on his birthday in the studio to add some guitar riffs and June thought the only good thing was Marc’ s play. This had the affect to put some more wood into the fire of the professional rivalry between the friends Bowie and Bolan what lead to the rise of two great superstars who wanted to out beat each other on stage.
June was Marc’ s wife and manager, also his driver to some shows as Marc was afraid of driving, and the strong pole in his life for everything practical...as Marc had no sense for that. The one and only time Marc drove a car was when June tried to teach him. Marc was very enthusiastic but enjoyed the lesson very little and was deeply shocked when he thought he lost control of the car. When he left June’s mini he had made his mind: never to drive a car again. At this time June thought Marc’s behaviour was quiet funny. "Marc, you are my hero" she laughed but respected his decision feeling how serious he was about that.
Glam Rock got started when Marc plundered his wife’s beauty case and used some of her
