This is the first in what should be...hopefully...a regular expression about Elton and his music on this page. Nearly half a century of writing with Bernie and other wordsmiths, roughly half a thousand songs and over 3000 live shows are plenty to keep you occupied. He's been occupying my life for quarter of a century...he won't be any invading force that will be repelled any time soon. Without going into a 'This Is Your Life' style explanation of who I am, hopefully you'll garner that impression over the next while. Look on it as big red book in progress, or travelling on a big red bus as somebody once wrote. The first few updates will be things I wrote on Facebook over the last while that got swallowed up in the sink hole of information that it has become.
