Why is Elton John in wheelchair?
April 11th, 2019 under Elton John. [ Comments: none ]

Elton John is on his final World tour, but is it too much for him? The 72-year-old singer was seen touring the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy looking sad in a wheelchair. What happened? He explained, “Not even a sprained ankle could keep me away from seeing one of the most beautiful museums in the world.”

Hopefully, he will be better soon because he still has a lot more of his tour to do. If you have never seen him live, now is the last time to see him do it. It is worth the money because I have seen him perform in a huge arena, a converted movie theater and a really small intimate gathering. I will not forget any of those spectacular performances and you will never forget seeing him live too.


Elton John’s Your Song is a gift that keeps on giving
November 16th, 2018 under Elton John. [ Comments: none ]

Elton John has many hits throughout his long career, but I think Your Song is his greatest one of all. I am not alone because UK’s John Lewis & Partners thinks the same thing.

The department store used him and the tune in a Christmas commercial. They have him playing the piano going backward in time to when he was a kid with a tagline that read, “Sometimes gifts are more than just a gift.”

An important message that was beautifully conveyed. If this does not get you in the Christmas spirit, nothing will.


Elton John’s musical fantasy comes alive in Rocketman

No one can deny that Elton John has led quite the life. Therefore, it should no surprise to us that his story is getting the big screen treatment in Rocketman.

I do not know about you, but I cannot wait to see this movie in May. Rockers like him were so much cooler from that generation. Which is why we want to their lives in movies. Who is next?


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.
