This series of photos shot by John Olson made the cover of Life Magazine in September 1971. This would be a great project for a photographer to update for 2011
Elton John with his mom Shelia and dad (actually stepfather) Fred Fairebrother hanging out in their swanky London apartment. Check out those boots on mom~ – nothing more pimpin’ than boots that match your shirt. Looks like Elton got his fashion sense from his mom.
Eric Clapton with his grandmother Rose in the house he bought her in Surrey, England.
