Just like you and I, rock stars all have parents too. In the deep dusty corners of the Life Magazine archives, these pictures have turned up – famous 70’s rock stars with their parents, taken in their parents’ houses.
These pictures are strangely humanizing… They all seem to have real, honest-to-goodness, “normal” seeming families.
