Who knew that Elton John‘s life story was so sad??!!!? We know that sad songs say so much, but his music is so un-sad – it’s joyous!!  And although 74% of the movie about Reginald Dwight’s transformation from broke bloke to sensational superstar is super sad (it’s like Tommy meets Pink Floyd’s The Wall, but WAY less  creepy and scary), you’ll be too busy enjoying the rise, to forget about the fall

What I particularly liked about Dexter Fletcher (that guy from Lock Stock!!) and Lee Hall‘s film is the pace – NON-stop.  You don’t even know where you are on the calendar year.  Time flies. The music soars.  The pain is real, but the antidote is right around the corner.  You can feel it.  It’s almost here!

Also, no knock on Taron Egerton, but before I saw Rocketman, I didn’t think for a second that the Kingsman kid would be able to pull off a role like this.  After?  I WAS BEYOND FCUKING WRONG.  TARON!  TARON!  TARON!!!  I mean, Elton’s retiring soon, so why doesn’t he go on tour with Adam Lambert and they can sing Queen and Elton songs and make billionz!!

Oh, and ALL those fcuking costumes!  And hairpieces!  And glasses!!  Make an special one year Academy Award for best movie glasses!!  SEEING IS BELIEVING

Rocketman has already lift-off

and until next thyme the balcony is clothed…


The Long Goodbye

Elton John
Madison Square Garden
October 18

Elton’s saying that this is his final tour (one that has dates that stretch into 2020)!!!!  BUT YOU CAN’T STOP NOW ELTON!!! (although you’re allowed to do whatever the fcuk you want!)

What a perfect show.  Just as amazing as when I first saw him in 2013, but with even more feeling – and pizzazz – and an incredible piano shaped stage!   You made Thursday night alright for fighting ROCKING!!!  

But no ‘Pinball Wizard‘?  Or ‘Lady D’Arbanville‘????  I know, I know – this is all hits – not all hits by other dudes that you may actually do better than their originals!!

But you’re still standing, even though you do a lot of sitting.  Long may you stand AND sit!!!

Thank you Elton

it sucks the most when musicians die, cause you can never relive their greatness visually like you can with actors.  it’s true!
