Music: What Were Ya’ Thinkin’, Man

They are Rock Stars after all, and a good part of their appeal is their flamboyance, but every now and again a wardrobe decision is made that defies all logic. How can you explain Elton John’s decision to dress as Donald Duck or Mick Jagger’s white ‘Dress’ for their free concert after the death of Brian Jones? Joe Strummer’s mohawk for the last Clash LP was an unfortunate choice as was the usually suave Marvin Gay’s choice to embrace Disco – with a vengence. And poor John Lydon choosing to relive his heady punk days now as a circus clown. Oh yeah, nice ‘eye-suit’ Freddie.
