Elton Helps GQ Celebrate 25 Years in Special Photoshoot

Some of the biggest names in U.K. rock history have taken part in a new photo shoot for British GQ that celebrates the magazine’s 25th anniversary. The Who‘s Roger Daltrey, The Kinks‘ Ray Davies, Elton John and Bryan Ferry are among the stars who dressed up in wool suits designed by some of the U.K.’s most famous tailors for a piece titled “Savile Row Is Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

Other well-known musicians featured in the portfolio include Duran Duran‘s John Taylor, former Jam frontman Paul Weller, ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and Pulp singer Jarvis Cocker. Most of the aforementioned rockers show off their fashionable side in a video shot in conjunction with the GQ photo spread. The clip is accompanied by an exclusive original track boasting guitars by Weller, Taylor and Marr.

The 25th anniversary issue of British GQ is due out on Friday. It’s also available digitally for iPad, Android and Kindle Fire devices.
