    Here is my Elton John story. The day Elvis died, I went into my big sister’s room and removed from her dresser a silver heart-framed picture of who I thought was Elvis and went around the neighborhood informing everyone of the day’s tradgedy. Finally one kid’s mom said “Honey, that’s not Elvis. It’s Elton John.” No 5 year old should have to go through that…Love E.J. He and Bernie T. are only topped by Lennon/Mccartney.

    “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” is by far my favorite Elton John song, though “My Father’s Gun” is right up there!! I can pretty much listen to the first two greatest hits collections straight through:-)

    Oh…and as a weird side story…I actually have met Bernie Taupin once in Fort Worth…He’s a big cutting horse guy and was an honorary guest at the Celebrity Cutting Horse event a few years back!
