Cranky old bitch Elton John — sorry, Sir Elton John — says American rock bands need to dress more like Mark Bolan. He tells Fashion Rocks Magazine:
“It’s been a thing the British have always been very good at, with Bowie, myself, T.Rex, the Who, Queen. … We all embraced that side of it. …. So when you get groups like The Killers and Scissor Sisters who come along, it’s thrilling. I’m so over the tattoos and the T-shirts and rings through the noses. It’s not pretty, it’s not pleasant, it’s not exciting. Please stop it now.”
