    Rock Stars Cars – Pictures of Music Stars With Their Cool Cars

    Moneyed musicians and expensive cars go together like turntables and vinyl. Some, such as Pete Townshend of the Who, claim to have spent five years saving up for their dream machine — a Mercedes S 600 Pullman, in Townshend’s case...

    Moneyed musicians and expensive cars go together like turntables and vinyl. Some, such as Pete Townshend of the Who, claim to have spent five years saving up for their dream machine — a Mercedes S 600 Pullman, in Townshend’s case...

    1. Freddie Mercury - Studebaker Champion

    [​IMG]
    Freddie gets first prize in the Rock Stars Cars' product placement competition as he makes himself comfortable on this 1950 Studebaker Champion.

    2. George Harrison - Aston Martin DB5

    [​IMG]
    George Harrison’s lust for speed began in childhood when he would doodle guitars and cars in class; he was able to slake his lifelong passion for driving with a variety of exotic wheels on the road and occasionally on the track.

    3. Janis Joplin - Porsche 365

    [​IMG]
    Janis Joplin’s Porsche 365 is on display in all its garish 60s glory, but you can’t blame poor Janis – her roadie, Dave Roberts, reportedly had the car painted “to resemble a pile of Jimi Hendrix’s vomit.” It was stolen a year after the paint job, painted grey, recovered, restored and is currently valued at $400,000.

    The car recently sold for $1.76 M at auction.

    4. Jeff Beck - Ford Deuce Coupe

    [​IMG]
    Jeff Beck is an avid collector of vehicles. His favorites are the classic Deuce Coupes and 1932 Ford Roadsters. He also has a 1932 three-window Ford coupe, which he copied from the car used in the classic movie called American Graffiti. He set out to create an exact replica after losing out in an auction to buy the original one. He still also has the 1963 split-window Corvette Stingray that he bought during the heydays of The Yardbirds.

    5. Miles Davis - Lamborghini Miura

    [​IMG]
    Miles Davis rolled in a Lamborghini Miura and famously broke both his ankles while totaling it in 1972. You can’t keep a jazz legend down, though, and when Davis was released from the hospital after a lengthy stay, one of the first orders of business was to buy another Lambo.

    6. Johnny Cash - Cadillac ('49 - '70)

    [​IMG]
    This Frankenstein's monster of a Cadillac was built to promote Johnny Cash's song "One Piece at a Time." The song's about an assembly-line worker who steals a Cadillac by taking one piece at a time home in his lunchbox. Nashville mechanic Bruce Fitzpatrick (far right) constructed the car from Cadillac parts, using the song as a manual.

    8. Dave Clark - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    The E-Type was the car of choice for 60s hit parade regulars The Dave Clark Five, or at least it was for Dave.

    9. Elvis Presley - Cadillac Eldorado Seville

    [​IMG]
    He's just popped into town to get his hair cut at Jim's Barber Shop, Memphis, and a cop appears to write him out a ticket for his new white Cadillac. It's unknown whether he's tucking a bribe into the officer's pocket or just crossing his fingers.

    10. Sonny and Cher - Mustangs

    [​IMG]
    Created to reflect the personalities of husband and wife singing duo Sonny Bono and Cher, this pair of 1966 Mustangs came in two different sizes. As a publicity stunt, it must have been an expensive one.

    11. Bruce Springsteen - Chevrolet Corvette

    [​IMG]
    Acquired on the back of a ton of sales for his 'Born to Run' album in 1975, Burce's 1960 Chevrolet Corvette is parked on Colonial Avenue, Haddonfield, New Jersey.

    12. Keith Moon - Ferrari Dino 246

    [​IMG]
    This is, of course, what all of Keith Moon's cars ended up looking like, but bizarrely it wasn't Keith who totalled his Ferrari Dino just a few weeks after he bought it. He lent it to a couple of bikers at his local pub, The Golden Grove in Chertsey, to take it for a spin, only for them to crash it into a roadworks ditch.

    16. Elton John - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    In the drive of his home in Old Windsor, Elton John creates his very own traffic jam. His Jaguar E-type gets pole position, with its personalised number plate representing 'OK Elton'.

    17. Alan Whitehead - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    A 22-year-old Alan Whitehead, the former drummer for Marmalade, is seen here with his E Type 2+2 in 1967.

    18. Ginger Baker - Jensen FF

    [​IMG]
    Ginger Baker, the drummer for the rock band Cream, is presented with the keys to his new Jensen FF in 1969. The Jensen FF, launched in 1966, is the world’s first production four-wheel drive car with anti-skid brakes.

    19. Keith Moon - AC 428

    [​IMG]
    Keith Moon showing off his hot rod, his AC 428 and his infamous hovercraft.


    21. Dave Clark - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    Dave Clark, of The Dave Clark Five, is seen here with his white E Type on the set of "Catch Us If You Can" in 1965.

    22. Tony Iommi - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    Tony Iommi also had 3 E Types and found them to be an exhilarating drive.

    23. Marky Ramone - 1965 Chrysler Imperial

    [​IMG]
    Marky Ramone, formerly of the band the Ramones, is seen with the 1965 Chrysler Imperial "Green Hornet" from the U.S. TV series. Ramones

    24. Cinnamon - Mercedes-Benz

    [​IMG]


    Putting her best foot forward, Cinnamon was 'shocked' when her frequent storky customer surprised her with the keys to this shiny new Mercedes. Asked for a comment, the stunned entertainer exclaimed 'I didn't even know he liked girls!'

    Hagar and his $1.4 Million 950 HP LaFerrari....just read this on them:

    To even be considered for LaFerrari ownership, you needed to be already a diehard collector with several Ferrari purchases to your credit. Hagar certainly fits the part: his collection dates back to the 1970s, when he was just getting started conquering the world of rock’n’roll and netted himself a four-headlight 330 GT 2+2. Just a few years later, his second Ferrari, a jet-black 1982 512 BBi, played the starring role in the music video for Hagar’s autobiographical hit “I Can’t Drive 55.” Today Hagar’s Ferrari collection includes that 512 BBi, a 400i automatic coupe, a rare Daytona, a 456 2+2, a Ferrari-customized 599 GTB Fiorano, and very soon, a LaFerrari. For that last one, Hagar and his wife Kari made the trip to Ferrari’s base of operations in Maranello, Italy for custom fitting for the driver’s seat – each LaFerrari seat is built to spec for its owner and is bolted to the frame – as well as selecting the car’s finish and interior materials.

    Bit disappointing to not see one of Moons floating Rolls or the famous run over yr driver Bentley. Still some fucking awesome shots.

    Billy Joel for the win though.

    Well, I think this photo makes it abundantly clear why Freddie would have been such a big fan of this particular model of Studebaker. ;)
