Happy Birthday to Elton John, who turns 73 today (March 25th)!!! Elton, who is back home in Britain after putting his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour on ice due to the Coronavirus, chatted with Apple Music and spoke about the current situation, saying, “This is the time where people are going to spend more time with their families than they've ever done before. And so far, again, check with me in two weeks. I'm enjoying it so much because I don't spend that much time with my family during the day and I'm loving every second of it. So cherish it while you can. Every cloud has a silver lining.”
He went on to say, “To be honest with you, it's great to be able to spend this much time with my boys because normally I don't, even though they've been on the road with us since November in Australia and New Zealand. This is 24/7 with them and it's fantastic. I mean I'm saying that after a week, check on me in about three weeks.”
2020 has already seen it's up's and down's for Elton, with a handful of shows being postponed after he contacted pneumonia. In February, Elton and longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin won their first joint Oscar for “(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again” — the theme to last year's Rocketman biopic, which is sung with Elton's silver screen counterpart, Taron Egerton.
