Elton's Kiwi All Black Connection
All Black legend Zinzan Brooke has spoken of his friendship with Elton John, telling how he donned the singer's clothes for a photoshoot and treated him to a haka.
London-based Brooke, 44, took part in a photoshoot for GQ magazine to promote Out of the Closet, a charity sale of flamboyant clothing owned by John and his partner David Furnish.
The sale, on December 12, was a fundraiser for the Elton John Aids Foundation.
Draped in a colourful Versace silk robe and John's trademark white-rimmed glasses, a stubble-faced Brooke was snapped reclining in a chair flicking through a notebook.
The shoot, in John's London home, also featured some of his other celebrity pals, including Sting, Natalie Imbruglia, rugby player Paul Sackey and Scream actress Neve Campbell.
"I loved my outfit and was really surprised at how well it fitted me," Brooke told GQ. "The shoot was great - I did the haka in Elton John's house."
