She performed with T.Rex and was Marc Bolan's girlfriend at the time of his death.

Yep, that's the one.

Morning all,

With some notable exceptions, there seems to be a preponderance of punk covers - has anyone any ideas if any punk songs were covered 'the other way'? Apart from the 'lounge singer' (Richard Cheese?) who covered a lot.

I'm quite partial to this. It may help satisfy your request above, Richard.
