Elton:

Missed that broadcast. What were the highlights?

I did manage to see Elton on THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT. Excellent fun interview and EJ and the band then played "Crocodile Rock" and "I'm Still Standing." It was a blast seeing Elton switch glasses with Stephen Colbert.

Videos of the interview and the songs are all over YouTube today.

As a result of this recent promotion, the DIAMONDS box set is currently at #2 on Amazon.com.

I watched the Colbert stuff on YouTube as per the links...

It was an OK performance, but Elton sang I'M Still Standing with a rough voice, and kept varying the way he sang Crocodile Rock - higher, then lower, then higher, then lower.

I watched the Colbert show; interview was nice (good to know he still remembers all his albums!), the songs were... well, he sounded pretty bad, didn't he?

Anyway, here is something I stumbled upon - a fantastic interview from 2001 that I'd never seen before. He's incredibly honest here, and very serious for a change. He talks a lot about drugs and rehab (as usual) but also about writing and recording, what inspires him, and what he wants to do when he's 70...
