I have quite a few friends who have worked very closely over the years with Elton John. Some of them are a little upset as there are a few inaccuracies. Apparently the portrayal of Dick James is not accurate and seems to have upset a few people. I understand that there is no mention of Gus Dudgeon and a few other people as well. On the other side of the coin, quite a lot of people that I know have seen it and they have all said that they absolutely love it. I have been hearing really fantastic reports. So, I will definitely have to get myself to a cinema and see it for myself. Over the years I have worked quite a bit with Elton and I have literally just found this shot from 1976. I haven’t looked at this negative since the day the film was processed 43 years ago. I need to dig deeper into my photo archive and dig out some more of these shots.. Anyway, I love this shot and I hope you do too!
I have also added a couple of slightly more recent photos of Sir Elton.. The genius songwriter and performer, that he is.
