Elton John Inducted Into The Headwear Hall of Fame
Each year, the Headwear Association, the hat industry’s organization, selects six people known for their love of headgear to enter its Hall of Fame. This year, John made the cut, along with Queen Elizabeth II, Sophia Loren, Diane Keaton, Spike Lee and Bruno Mars. While Elton doesn’t often sport a hat these days, back in the ’70s and ’80s, he wore them all the time because of his premature baldness. Nowadays, he just wears a toupee.
There are now a total of 36 celebrities in the Hall, including such music stars as Frank Sinatra, Carlos Santana, Aretha Franklin, Tom Waits and Madonna.
