I personally love Elton John. Plus he had a very good and versitile guitarist in the 70s, Davey Johnstone. Anybody else like him?

Outstanding performer, consistently brilliant songwriter who has written some songs that will last as long as there are humans, a true character, and groundbreaking in his work.

Sounds pretty damn good to me.

I didn't really like his music until I discovered 'Madman across the water' in my mum's collection. Now that's a good album.

Elton John was and still is a pop singer.I cannot stand the fact that my local classic ROCK station insists on playing his sappy music almost hourly.I hated him in the 70's and still do.

He is an excellent pianist and songwriter, but I've never been really into his stuff. When I was baby, my mom would sing the song about "My brother Daniel" to me, which is an Elton John song. That's one of my earliest memories.:D

Elton John is great in my opinion. I love the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album. Haven't heard much else of his, thought. I think the moment when I was really caught by him was hearing the "graveyard for a friend" line in Talking Old Soldiers. Good stuff.

Yeah, he was a pop singer. And in Jimi Hendrix's obituary in the New York Times, they called him a pop guitarist. Granted, him doing Disney stuff as he got older hasn't done anything for his current credibility, but labeling him as "pop" is kind of an odd attempt at a slur. And some of the greatest classic rock songs are "sappy." After all, Layla was Eric Clapton's last ditch effort at trying to woo George Harrison's wife. Sorry if his music isn't macho enough for you, which is the general gist I got from your post.

I've always liked Elton John. I saw him in concert a few years ago, and I was still impressed by his showmanship and his playing. I think Davey Johnstone was playing with him on that tour, also.

I like Eltons' Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy album. The guitarist he had on that album reminded me a little bit of David Gilmour in certain areas too in the way that he played certain licks and bent certain notes. Great album.

I love Elton John's music. It was he that got me in the music I like and play today. One thing, however, that pisses me off is when people label his entire career as "pop", when only his work post the original band was disbanded can possibly fit in to that. His early work, in my conception, is Piano Rock, Rockabilly and R&B.

On the FFAF/LLB, I always though of the song as having a more progressive sound, even if not fitting on the genre itself. Regardless, the song really shows what a great guitarist Davey Johnstone is.

Elton John is pretty cool. I have his greatest hits version I and II on a double lp set and it's very good. I also have a rare picture disc on vinyl titled A Single Man. I haven't put that one on the turntable yet because I'm afraid of damaging it. So I've never taken it out of the case. :) I also loved his performance in The Who's Tommy. Very entertaining.

Elton John is pretty cool. I have his greatest hits version I and II on a double lp set and it's very good. I also have a rare picture disc on vinyl titled A Single Man. I haven't put that one on the turntable yet because I'm afraid of damaging it. So I've never taken it out of the case. :) I also loved his performance in The Who's Tommy. Very entertaining.
I don't know why I just thought of this but I was watching The History Of Rock And Roll and there is a short clip of Elton John dressed up in a Donald Duck outfit jamming on the piano. Does anyone know what the hell that was all about?!? :confused:
Elton John was veeeeerry eccentric in his early days, hed dress up almost all the time, big glasses, goofy costumes, it helped his persona

^ Speaking of Beatles covers. His "Whatever Gets You Thru the Night" with John Lennon is a monster.

Yep, it was a good single, very 1974, very Elton and Lennon during that period.
Lennon's first US #1 single. Also worth noting that Elton scored his first UK #1 hit as a duet with Kiki.

I love his deep voice these days, alot of people say he's lost it vocally, maybe he has a bit but he has always been one of the greatest entertainers of our time.

His vocals on Songs From The West Coast are spectacular. Very deep and rich, almost unrecognizable from the guy who sang "Rocket Man" or "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".

Thanks to my guitar teacher, I got into Elton John. I was too lazy to actually listen to something by him..then one day my teacher played bennie and the jets, and that got me started listening to him. He's one of my favorites now

Elton John and his writing partner, Bernie Taupin, are definitely one of the best writing teams ever to work together, in my opinion. My favorite songs are probably Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me and Someone Saved My Life Tonight.

I encourage you all to watch on YouTube the Bennie And The Jets version at Wembley ī84. He is on fire!!

I canīt wait to see him in late january. Unfortunately he doesnīt perform many of my favourite tracks like Healin Hands, Club At The End Of The Street, You Gotta Love Someone, Too Young, The One or Town Of Plenty, but yet having the chance to see him is more than enough for me.

I recommend you all to listen his very underrated Peachtree Road CD. Weight Of The World, Porch Swing In Tupelo and My Elusive Drug are outstanding tracks. And yet, most of the b-sides from that album are much better than many of the album tracks.

I tried to get tickets- and didn't.

I looked the day they went on sale and all the decent seats were gone (everything except the seats behind the damn stage). I kept checking back and got nothing decent.

Kind of bummed to miss this tour, but whatever. I couldn't justify those ticket prices for awful seats.

I had it easy. My girlfriend got me tickets for Christmas. :D

They're not on the floor, but it's a nice stage view.

I had a chance to go see him on his last tour but I ended up not being able to go, I really wish I'd seen him now. He's been on my list for years. I don't think him and Billy are coming to Vancouver either.

as much as I listen mostly to new post hardcore/rock/pop punk/whatever these days, I just had the realization today that Elton John will always be one of my favorite artists of all time. (as with Billy Joel) I missed their concert for my own choir concert :( I was super pissed. considering I don't really know how much more time these guys have left.

Levon is my favorite from him. but he really doesn't write bad songs :D
