I initially found these set of photos while browing Apartment Therapy, and since Time Life politely asked AT to remove them, I’ve decided to post them here. I figure a) this blog, Art Brut(e), is a little under the radar, so it’s not like anyone’s going to notice anyway, and b) GUERILLA ART BLOG!  So without further adieu, here are some singer-songwriters* from the 70’s in their parent’s homes.


Grace Slick with her mother, Virginia Wing, in her childhood home of Paolo Alto.

Eric Clapton with his grandmother, Rose, in the house he bought her in Surrey.

Rock musician Elton John with his mother Shelia and stepfather Fred Fairebrother in their London apartment. Check out her boots! She’s totally where he got sense of style from.

Frank Zappa with parents Francis and Rosemary in Frank’s home in Los Angeles.

David Crosby with father Floyd in his father’s home in Ojai.

For more I’d check out Time Life’s set on their website here.

*I’m not using “rock musicians”. Donovan ain’t no rock musican.
