(Rock News Desk) Marc Bolan's son has revealed how David Bowie stepped in to save him and his mother from poverty after the glam star's death.

But Rolan, 35, has never seen his godfather since he was a baby. And the star has never wanted thanks for providing emotional and financial help.

Glam icon Bolan died in a car crash in 1977 just as he was on the cusp of rebuilding his career after years in the doldrums. His girlfriend Gloria Jones, who was driving the purple Mini in London, was seriously injured in the accident. more on this story
