GPR proves that he is at least human...by getting it hopelessly wrong for a change LOL!

ELTON WAS EXCELLENT,  and  all those I know, young and old have said the same .
Was surprised by the mobility issues, but did'nt effect the performance .
I admit I am am an Elton fan, particularly  the 70's stuff, and I possess  vinyl(still )"& cd's of most of his output, during this period.
Have seen him live several  times, but thought the prices on the 
farwell tour(gig at swansea),were ridiculously  expensive, ahd I was'nt prepared to pay that money.
However to open with pinball wizard and bitch is back, with such a tight sound,  driven by Olson  drums  and Davey Johnson's  wonderful guitar work,  just set the tone.
It just went from there...even though his early day falsetto, has n9w mellowed ( which I prefer), ge can STILL SING...which us more than I can say  about Debbie Harry, who also looked a mess.
Shame when this happens. Mc Cartney proved proved last year that age does'nt matter, as long as you can carry it off.
Elton taken that decision  now, and should be thanked for the years of pleasure he has given us.
He's admitted  his previous failings,  with drink ,drugs, tantrums, we all make mistakes.
He ' s now committed  to he young talent, as this Glastonbury  show indicates,  and his 'aids foundation', has saved countless lives.
Thank you Elton! 


Human most definitely Pimp. Nostalgia is something I tend not to suffer with. I try to say it as I see it. My wife & I taped Elton's set and looked forward to replaying it. Elton when we saw him last was the epitome of energy, vocals were crisp & clear and his piano work top draw. I am afraid anyone who thought his set on Sunday was acceptable even is suffering from said nostalgia in my opinion. 

He had mobility issues could hardly get up from his seat to take the applause, his vocals were dull and tame and his rapport with the audience was stilted. There comes a time in everybody's life when they need to realise that they can no longer do certain things. To perform on stage as a soft rock musician you need energy - Elton I am afraid does not.

 I immediately picked up the word “taped”and thought I might have said just that before my online brain training reprogramming course I took 25 years ago to stop me using old fashioned words!  Mind you have you seen Gareth’s striped Tank Top and flares - looks a bit like Whistling Bob Harris from the Old Grey Whistle Test !! 😉😁 
Anyway I’m off for a stroll  now with my Walkman 😉

But people forget he's an old guy , things don't work as well as your age progresses , there are many on here who make little sense at times but I just put it down that they are just old farts who are upset that the world they knew has gone ....it's a very strong emotion and was used to its full capacity by conning people to vote for brexit ....Some people's memories are clouded and distorted by what they think they remember compared to the facts Wink

Perhaps you could explain what is nostalgic about watching Elton's Glastonbury set. What is nostalgic is thinking it was good in my opinion.

I do love it when remainers keep busting a gut to introduce Brexit into any conversation/comment they can. Poor buggers they can never seem to get over it - must be difficult carrying that around 24/7. Confused

Very true! Ironically Vinyl records are making a comeback- quite cool it seems but I suspect cassettes have had their day. So annoying when they twisted up !

Gareth cannot avoid the occasional nibble outside off stump.
After saying that , he(gar) and Lynton Lewis (et al), were the best I have seen,outside the county circuit, and I used to travel up regularly from Llanelli to Ammanford to watch. A didn't even know Gareth then.
Even the best including Marus L, can get out for a duck occasionally...

So Gareth's recent innings at the Glastonbury oval read...............
