I wonder who carted that piano out into the garden and set up the PA? Neither EJ or Furnish I'm guessing.

I saw this yesterday and was rather surprised by his vocal.

It sounded to me like he needed a No. 2 and was under pressure getting the song done 😀

No one mixing the sound and in the open air, and TV productions always favour vision rather than sound. I thought he sounded OK.

I thought Aimee Winehouse lived in High Barnett and Elton lives in Windsor. If we have a drought it could be Brown Windsor...

To be fair, i  think he was a terrific song writer, in his day.  I even liked his voice, back then.

17-11-70 is one of my favourite live albums.

Same here, I never really appreciated just how good he was, but did like his 70s material.

I think in the case of Elton & Macca they’re both Premier League, however gone on for just a few seasons too long. Footballers usually have the sense to retire when their legs have gone, it’s a shame great singers don’t do the same when their voices go. I’d far rather reading - and be writing - about how great they were, rather than how poor they sound now.

At least you didn’t call him gay as a term

Of abuse - you had every other base covered though :P

Quite right - there's a time to stop if your voice gives out

Yellow Brick Road, though now a very commercial track,  was a stroke of genius ( IMO ) the arrangement is fab and the lyrics just as fab

But as Baxlin said, back then, not any more

Its not something i would point out, because its his choice, and has no bearing on anything at all.

What i dont like about him is his diva-erish attitude.  I wouldnt be surprised if he ever used the words " dont you know who i am "  and other sleb faux pas, like being difficult to work with and so on blah blah.

Doesnt take away from ( some of )  his brilliant work, though

Self confessed fan of his music, and his bands, from 17-11-70 up to and including Blue Moves. Dee Murray and Kenny Passrrelli are massive influences on my playing.  
But I find it all a bit embarrassing now, truth be told I have done for a long time. 
Just retire man.
