The sister of a legendary Hampshire drummer who played with Elton John, Rod Stewart and Paul McCartney has appeared on BBC One's The Repair Shop. 

Diane Wynell-Sutherland made an appearance on tonight's episode as she brought in a pair of cowboy boots bought by her brother, Roger Pope. 

Roger, who graced the stage with some of the biggest names in music lived in the Sholing area of Southampton and attended Itchen Grammar School. 

While studying he joined a band called The Countdowns and later toured with the Soul Agents before a young singer called Rod Stewart joined Roger and his pals and they became Rod Stewart and the Soul Agents.

In the late 1960s Roger was asked to drum for an unknown singer called Reg Dwight – who later changed his name to Elton John whom he remained with until 1970.

The boots were bought by Roger for Diane's son and now belong to her grandson Jos. 

Diane told cobbler Dean Westmoreland that the boots are the "last little bit of my brother" but with the leather having become brittle, she needed them repaired. 

She added that her brother had been a musician since the age of 15 and had worked on a lot of Sir Elton's earlier albums. 

He died in 2013 having been diagnosed with throat cancer, marrying his partner Sue Tressider on his deathbed.
