    Default Rocketman Film.

    I saw a poster about the Film, called Rocketman and out of nostalgia I was interested in seeing it when it comes to town, but then I realised that Elton John does not appear in the film , it is about his life story from boyhood to global superstar , depicted by Taron Egerton, who plays the part of Elton John, no problem with that he seems to do it quite well, but I don't think I'll bother, I prefer the songs sung by Elton John as I used to enjoy them.
    I liked early Elton John songs. He is a great classically trained pianist and lyricist.

    I liked a lot of his early stuff, but not so keen on the more 'recent'. Many moons ago I had one of his (arguably) best albums, "Honky Chateau".

    Now that takes me back a bit, early 70s?

    The best days, I agree, it is a good album. It is sad we grow old so quick.

    If you want to go back to the 60's and 70's music , tune in to. BBC Radio 2, Tony Blackburn , Saturday mornings - I 'm listening now, between 0:600 to 08:00, so if your an earlybird you will love it. I feel like dancing through my housework listening to it.

    The dog usually wakes me around 9.00. - Much better than an alarm clock
