What about him playing at Cleethorpes Weekender

Elton at Cleethorpes, ha ha I think he's been on the wagon too long to risk that :-)

That kind of reminds me (no offense Ady..) of that Vicar of Dibley episode :wicked:

He'll have to do a tape first.

He auditioned for the Mike Cotton Sound who were a very mod group and Mike said he was a good pianist but looked a bit square so he didn't get the gig.

I have listened to the broadcast and found it interesting.Years ago when I was a student at Stockport College I deejayed with a mate before Elton John appeared as the live act.He was a great performer soul or otherwise.

At the time we tried to persuade the artist booking commitee to book some soul acts rather than the long haired lot like Caravan , Principal Edwards etc--but they would not have it.(Actually some of the jazz rock acts were good- if I am allowed to say that -but a night of Geno Washington, Jimmy James or similar would have gone down well with me.)

cheers

Of course he later developed a more 'rounded' style....(Oh dearwhistling )
