Elton John: Appreciate

It was suggested to me earlier that I should have created a new thread, as opposed to contributing to the "Elton is a small, petty queen who bitches about Madonna" thread, and yeah, I probably should have.

The fact is, WOW. Holding his prolific catologue against anyone else from '69 to the early 80's? After that, he may have broken with Taupin for a while, to become mainly a/c / Disney, but the fact is, even when he does lame genres, he does them well!

And going back to his early catalogue, does anyone do it better?

I've been a fan for years, but earlier tonight just got Elton John Dream Ticket: Four Destinations, Four DVDs, and I LOVE it. To one of the original 70's pianomen/glam artists

Yes, I love 70s Elton, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road has to be one of my all time favourite albums. Can't say I'm really into his later stuff but isn't he supposed to be bringing out a follow up with Taupin to Captain Fantastic soon? may be interesting.

Your Song
Bennie and the Jets
Candle in the Wind
Crocodile Rock

Wow, the list of favorites could go on and on. The only thing that really pissed me off about Elton is I went to see him in Oakland in the early to mid 80's and the show sucked major ass. He was late. He came out on the stage and sat at his piano and started playing, didn't interact with the audience or talk between songs. We walked out. He was just not in a good place in his life obviously. We could have sat at home listening to his cd's (which I will never stop doing) rather than paying for concert tickets and going out fighting crowds to see him. I've forgiven the man though.

OK, so he's a hissy-fit queen in the largest fashion & I don't much care for his later work, but damn, that man could rock a piano like nobody's business back in the day! I grew up loving him & still have a special place for him in my heart.
