Hot Love

Hot Love by T. Rex was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, March 20, 1971 spending 6 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The two performances of the song in March 1971 on Top of the Pops, which saw Bolan dressed for the first time on television in shiny satin stagewear and glittery make-up (the latter at the suggestion of his stylist Chelita Secunda) were a crucial trigger for the glam rock movement. In a UK poll in 2015 it was voted eleventh on the ITV special The Nation's Favourite 70s Number One. The song marks the first time a full drum kit appeared on a T. Rex song, after Bill Fifield joined the group at Tony Visconti's suggestion. The single was issued and, due to its success, Fifield was invited to audition to join the band, adopting the stage name Legend.
