LENNONYC: Beyond Broadcast
Episode 4: Elton John
Elton John

Elton John

After losing a friendly bet that “Whatever Gets You Thru the Night” would never go to number one (it did), John Lennon played his last live show with his good friend Elton John at Madison Square Garden in November, 1974.  John and Yoko always claimed that this concert was the catalyst for their reconciliation. In fact, when Sean was born a year later they ask Elton to be his godfather.

    There was a technical difficulty last week and the new episode did not post to the subscription feed. It should be there now. Thank you for your patience.

    Love doesn’t conquer all — money does!
    It seems rather sad and ironic that Elton John wouldn’t think twice about
    accepting a cool million to play a command performance for Joseph Goebbels.
    The conservatives all rejoiced when John Lennon was murdered!

  • W. S. Williams

    Sorry as no personal insult intended but the interviewer of Sir Elton John seemed I’ll prepared, lacking flow and simply out of her depth. A quality interviewer would have made more of the limited time that Sir Elton had… it’s a pity given his relationship with John during his NYC years.

    He donated ALL of the Limbaugh money to hunger and AIDS charities. Sorry, checkmate.
