Photo Essay: 70’s Rock Stars With Their Parents

Some great photos from Life magazine, circa 1971.

A few of the captions are out of order. I like the one about Frank Zappa’s mom being jealous of his hair. And I would not want to spill Kool-Aid on Joe Jackson’s shag carpet. And OMG! Just noticed the plastic chair covering at Ritchie Havens’ folks’ place.
