Crocodile Rock Promo Video From 1972: Elton John Visits Fashion Legend Nudie Cohn

In this 1972 promo video for “Crocodile Rock,” Elton John pays a visit to his tailor, the legendary Nudie Cohn.
Cohn designed elegantly flashy rhinestone-studded, hand-embroidered suits for George Jones, Elvis, Cher, John Lennon, Robert Mitchum and Gram Parsons, among many many others.
At the beginning of the video, Elton manages the amazing feat of crossing the lawn without getting his platforms stuck in the grass. Glam skills.
