Wonder what Elton is thinking about this article. Monday The Daily Mail will print another one. Sh!t is hitting the fan.

Songs are lightning
When they strike you
You hang on every line
They’re bits of history
Don’t try to change ‘em
It’s how you’re feeling at the time

I'll say what I said on the other thread in Misc. :

I just had an entire long spiel going on here and edited it all out. I am NOT going to get real involved in his personal life. I don't care. I care about his music and that's it.

All I will say is---I agree with NLR. She's a fighter, and good for her. Sad for her, but she's strong. Way to go!!!


Also, on this thread I do agree with you NLR. wink.gif

Like you Latitude, I'm avoiding getting into this discussions about Elton's mum. There are several treads on Facebook. It's a private stuff and she should have kept it private. All I can say is that I feel for her and hope Elton comes to his senses and make up with his mum.

I'll keep on discussing his music.

I did weaken, and got into it a bit more on the misc. forum, but then backed off again. blink.gif It's hard to keep thoughts in when that has now been made public, which it shouldn't have been. Those tabloids love stuff like this.

There's quite a bit about this on the Crazy Water site too, with all sorts of opinions. Also, there are plenty of comments from people after you read that interview with Sheila (on that page). More diverse opinions.

It's a shame but ultimately it's their business.

I suppose it *is* their business, but when it's made public, like this article, it's not unusual for this board to discuss things like that. I mean, this forum right here is called Elton John Offstage, so it's to be expected. I don't like to get TOO deeply into it all because it's pretty bothersome, and there's nothing anybody can do about it. But, it's like James said---7 years wasted for nothing. Just some petty thing that could have been forgiven years ago.

Somebody that was SO close to his mother, even calling himself a Mama's boy, just ending it all and moving on as if she didn't exist. Incomprehensible. And makes me wonder about him....

It seems to me, albeit that we have only heard one side of the story, that DF is controlling Elton's life.

My hunch is that the talentless Furnish who got lucky in 1993 is so paranoid about protecting his meal ticket that he wants neither Elton nor Sheila to have any contact with his 'old life'.

Sheila, the wise old owl has got his measure.

Elton on the other hand is caught in the middle and has chosen to back Furnish rather than stand up to him. A spineless stance that has led to this ridiculous seven year stand-off.

This is based on the assumption that the article in the Daily Mail is accurate, and knowing the Daily Fail it probably isn't. They may have left stuff out or manipulated comments. It wouldn't surprise me.

Then again it wouldn't surprise me of David is controlling Elton.

I imagine there are elements of that article that are true. And it's not outside of Elton's character to act like that. But, I imagine that both of them have some blame in this whole thing. Pride gets in the way. And, David and his control of Elton gets in the way hugely.

I was listening to the Poland 2014 concert tonight, and this is what Elton said before the song 'Believe'. Quote---'One of my favorite songs. It's about love and I'm all in favor of love. There's enough hate in the world'. If he really said 'I hate you' to his own mother--- ph34r.gif Actually he's been acting like he's totally forgot all about her. Disowned her?

He did send her flowers for her birthday. Otherwise he'd look even worse then he already looks. And that's probably why he did it. We'll see where that leads. She doesn't seem to think it'll lead anywhere because 'Furnish has him now' she said.

As I said before...it's a one sided story..but having said that...put yourself in Eltons shoes...right your Elton...and your partner/wife/husband is David....you have words with your Mum...you attack her with words and she attacks you and your other half with words...so where do you put yourself?...I'd guess you'd come down on the side of your other half...and that's what Elton has done..he loves both..but in the end it's a different kind of love for your Mum and your other half...when you get together with someone...you hope they get on with your parents and they get on with your new partner...doesn't alway work out like that...and I really don't think its a case of David controlling Elton...and to me...it seems an olive branch has been sent in the way of the birthday flowers..and even more so as its got everyone's name on the card that came with it...I do hope she rings Elton and co..to thank them for the flowers...I think they could start over again..but it'll be like walking on eggs...

I hope they can make some kind of peace because she's 90 and unfortunately you have to accept she hasn't got long left, and in all realism at 68 Elton could depart us at any time, and it would be very sad if something happened to either of them and they hadn't made peace.

It's also important for Zachary and Elijah. They should have Sheila in their life and Sheila should have them.
