Elton J. on Elvis C.

Postby Danny » Sun Jun 29, 2003 5:19 am

Hi all - does anyone know what Elton said as he 'inducted' (terrible word) Elvis into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame? Just curious as I can't imagine what on earth he'd say - seems like an unlikely choice of inducter!

It was the one thing I have I managed to remember to get my VCR ready for, so I can go back and watch it to get everything exactly.

Off the top of my head, I do remember him having high praise for him, going back and talking about his first album and the songs from it. Seems like he even made a comment about how he hadn't "sold out" which was unlike what he had done. He talked about how Elvis got his stage name, and some other things. It really wasn't a bad introduction, but as usual Elton was giddy like a girl and a tad off color, but I like Elton and thought he expressed much admiration for Elvis on his special night.

I'd honestly have to go back and watch it again to refresh my aging memory. I was a bit starstruck that night just watching him on tv, and I had a few drinks to boot, so I just can't remember any more!!!!!! :wink:

Thanks Spooky. The show didn't seem to pop up on British telly, so I missed it. Wonder if Elton has sung any Elvis songs in the past? Can't imagine his voice with any Elvis stuff.

I seem to recall Elton going on about Elvis scoring the soundtracks to gay porn films. I'm not kidding (although I believe Elton was.)

mmmm. gay porn.



it would explain the tiff between Elvis and Bruce, though, eh? :D

i'm sorry, i read too much slash, and therefore interpret everything is gay. it's been ingrained in my psyche. nnnnnner.
if we can rock together, why can't we walk together?

It was shown on VH1 U.K, Danny, but I managed to miss the whole of John's speech. In fact I missed everything Elvis had to say, and Steve, and Pete, and umm..Bruce. The last song they played is all I saw.
