Sound and Vision: Rock Styles Onstage

Elton John

Now that his suit and mop-top ginger toupee has become a uniform, it may surprise some that Elton John was once as famous for his outlandish garb as for his endless parade of hits. Open-chested shirts dripping with glitter, feather boas in a full spectrum of colors, a crazy assortment of sunglasses, even a full-body Donald Duck costume was in the realm of acceptable stage gear. He auctioned off the heroic collection of outfits in 1988, and promptly began amassing another.
