Who’s sad that BSB’s Don’t Go Breaking My Heart is not a cover of Elton’s hit?
May 17th, 2018 under Backstreet Boys /Aaron Carter, Elton John. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1976, Elton John and Kiki Dee released their timeless hit Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, and it has been covered several times since then. Today, when I got an email that Backstreet Boys released their first single in five years called Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, I thought it was a remake of that tune. As soon as I hit play, I knew it was an original song.

As much as I like it, I am still disappointed that it was not their take on the Disco duet. What about you?


Elton John explains why he lost it on Thursday night
March 3rd, 2018 under Elton John. [ Comments: none ]

On Thursday night, Elton John lost his cool and walked off the stage because a fan got too handsy with him while he was singing. Today, he took to Instagram to explain his side of the story.

Thursday night in Las Vegas a fan put his hands on the piano keys while I was playing and continued to do so even after I asked him to stop. He then proceeded to reach over the piano and try to take pictures, completely disrupting the performance. I bring fans onstage every evening when we play ‘Saturday Night’ in the set, it is always a lovely part of the show where I get to meet them, shake their hands and have them right there with me while I play. They have always been very courteous to the fact we are in the middle of playing a song live. This guy was rude, disruptive and had no care or respect for our show and so I let him know how I felt, then left the stage until they had removed him.

This is second incident in less than a month, which makes you wonder how much longer he will keep bringing people up on the stage for Saturday Night. Hopefully forever, or at least the next few years while he is still performing live.


Sharon Stone loses it on The Late Late Show

Sharon Stone has been single for a long time. Yesterday on The Late Late Show, James Corden tried to find out what type of guy she is looking for for herself. Her friend Elton John did not hesitate to chime in and say, “Big!” Before he even sounded out the g, she started laughing and could not stop. Which tells us what he means when he says big. It ain’t how tall he is or how plump he is, it is, well you know, what it is. Us ladies all have that basic instinct.


Elton John smacked in the mouth by a silver beaded necklace
February 16th, 2018 under Elton John. [ Comments: none ]

Elton John was singing Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting) Wednesday night in Las Vegas when he suddenly got hit in the mouth by a silver beaded necklace that was thrown at him by a fan. According to TMZ, the retiring-from-touring singer had just invited the front row up on stage when the incident happened.

John looked pissed and nervous that his teeth might have been chipped, but he was alright and he went on with the show.

No word what happened to the fan that threw the beads, but I am sure they got no Valentine’s Day loving from him after that.

I also doubt that John will allow any fans on the stage again.


Is Elton John going to announce his retirement? UPDATE: Yes
January 24th, 2018 under Elton John. [ Comments: none ]

Elton John has been wowing live audiences for almost 50 years and now after half a century he is ready to announce what is next for him. Some are speculating that the 70-year-old is going to announcement his retirement from touring after one more world tour. If that is the case, he has plenty to keep him busy. He is working on a Broadway musical for The Devil Wears Prada, a live-action version of The Lion King (he worked on the animated and Broadway version of it) and the animated film Sherlock Gnomes.

Now my speculation is that in that the video he posted A wrinkle in time. Past meets present, he mentions his first show was at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. I think he is going to announce at 9:30a ET that he will play a huge concert that will be filmed for YouTube. Since that latter is in partnership with the announcement.

If he is announcing his retirement from the road, I say go see him while you can. I have seen him in an auditorium, a converted movie theater and an amphitheater, and every show was amazing. There are a few people that can put on a show like him, so don’t miss it.

If he is retiring, he is the second artist to do it in just as many days. Neil Diamond announced he was done touring on Monday after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
