Elton John

I didn't like Elton John at all when I was younger, until I watched a documentary on him.

He and Bernie Taupin were working together. Over the course of about 2 hours, Bernie had completely written the lyrics to a brand bew tune, and Elton simply read them out loud whilst sat at a piano, and it was as though the words inspired his hands to play certain chords and patterns on the keys. It must have taken about 2 hours in total to come up with a completely original song from start to finish.

That may sound a bit daft, but it was seriously ace to watch, and since then I've thought Elton was great.

    I've had the pleasure of seeing him in concert twice. Once with Billy Joel. That was the greatest concert ever. Each doing a set of their own songs and some of the others, then doing a set together. Two of the greatest singer/song writter/piano playes in the history of music.
