Rock Stars And Their Parents

 

 

Rock clapton

The life of a rock star is about as good as it gets, right? Money, fame, girls, parties, excess… let’s be honest, if all bets were off and responsibilities were non-existent, their lives are what we’d all love to be living – or at least for a while. But behind the debauchery and craziness are ordinary people from ordinary backgrounds. These fantastic photos from the early 1970s capture this mundanity in all its glory (or lack of it), juxtaposing the rock and roll with mum and dad. David Crosby and his dad is our particular favourite at number 5.

To start things, off here is Eric Clapton and his lovely grandmother, Rose. Is that a photo of the guitar legend in action on the mantlepiece? Awesome shirt by the way Eric…
