Elton John- Goodbye Yellow Brick Road- Elton & Bernie Taupin

Co-writer Elton John, with his record-shattering multi-year “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” world tour in the rearview mirror, and lyricist Bernie Taupin, just now publishing his long-awaited autobiography Scattershot: Life, Music, Elton, and Me, are my special guests here In the Studio for Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. The human dynamo Elton John and his crack live band  completed what has to be a world record-setting 300+ concert multi-year epic international trek. Entitled Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, Elton John concluded more than a half century of performing at the highest level, using any metric you choose. This fond farewell points to the October golden anniversary of the release of the masterpiece Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which is a virtual greatest hits package unto itself.

With my guests Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin, the 1973 double album   contained “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Bennie and the Jets”,”Saturday Night’s All Right for Fighting”,”Harmony”, and the original “Candle in the Wind”. And that’s just in this first part one of two hours! Ranked at #91 on Rolling Stone magazines Top 500 Albums of All Time, the worldwide sales are over twenty million. Sir Elton John( r ) and his brilliant lyricist Bernie Taupin  join me In the Studio. –Redbeard
