Elton John walked shyly into the corner room of his sprawling suite on the tenth floor of the Sherry-Nether-land Hotel in New York, delivered a bone-crushing handshake and assumed the middle of a white sofa. He rarely does interviews and when his eyes, behind blue-tinted glasses, look away, they reveal his discomfort. His show in Madison Square Garden the night before (August 17th), with its dancing bananas and flying trousers, was the big finish to a sellout 16-day swing through the East and, by report, marked his farewell to the road for a long time, maybe even for good. Rolling Stone‘s #49 Greatest Artist of All Time: Elton John “It was a pretty weird night, a very sad occasion, I must say. It came to the point where I sang ‘Yellow Brick Road’ and I thought, ‘I don’t have to sing this anymore,’ and it made me quite happy inside.” He sighed and ran a finger along the coffee table edge. “Yeah, it could be the last gig forever. … [Read more...] about Elton John Comes Out as Bisexual in Rolling Stone’s 1976 Cover Story

There is a remarkable scene early in Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars, the new Showtime documentary about the guitarist’s career, that sums up his meteoric rise as a British-blues prodigy and worldwide superstar: Bob Dylan in a London hotel room in 1965 watching John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers on television and raving over that band’s guitarist – Clapton, now 72, then barely out of his teens. “I still can’t believe that’s real,” Clapton says, laughing, in a New York hotel lobby the day after a screening. “I thought, ‘Oh, that must be Photoshop-ed.'” Directed by Lili Fini Zanuck, Life in 12 Bars also has extraordinary footage of Clapton onstage with Cream in the Sixties and revealing interviews with the women in his life including his grandmother Rose – who raised him after Clapton’s 16-year-old mother, Patricia, left England with his father, a Canadian airman – and first wife Pattie Boyd, the object of … [Read more...] about Eric Clapton Talks Addiction, Cream’s Brilliance, the Future of the Guitar
It’s a sort of lopsided smile, almost like a child’s-drawing version of what a grin is supposed to look like. Even more than the eyes and the jawline and that chin, which would later by framed by long Swingin’ Sixties sideburns and covered by a ragged Seventies beard, it’s the mouth of the kid in those early, black and white pictures that draws recognition. That’s Eric Clapton’s smile that the lad in the woolly jumper is sporting. And as he got older, even after he became famous and fans thought his playing was divine and he had permanently changed rock and roll, those happy expressions would be harder and harder to come by. That, in essence, is the message of Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars, Lili Fini Zanuck’s surprisingly satisfying sprint through the guitarist’s life that constantly reminds you of the old chestnut about needing to have the blues in order to play the blues. And as everyone from jilted exes to Jimi Hendrix will tell you … [Read more...] about Toronto 2017: Clapton, Gaga Music Docs Have Strong Premieres at Fest
