Ringo Starr on Born to Boogie

Andrew Tyler, Disc and Music Echo, 9 December 1972

"BOLAN STRUTS, man, and I like that about him a lot. A lot of people, when they first meet him, can be put off because his attitude is very bobby. He comes in telling you. He doesn't ask much, he tells a lot and I love that about him. He comes in with an acetate saying '300,000 in five days, number one in two weeks'... and it was just fantastic for me that this guy with so much confidence could just come striding in."
