I think England, in general, make the best commercials (not that I'm biased!) but yes, John Lewis commercials are the best of all. I just got back and I can honestly say I enjoyed watching the ads as much as the actual programming!

Love Elton. I have all his music even the vinyl albums. I saw him 7x in concerts. Even brought my eldest when he was 6yrs old. Concert was outside at Jarry Park in Montreal. And yes it’s his mom n grandmom gave him his first piano.

Thank you for sharing!! Beautiful commercial!

That's great!!! My sons first ever concert was when he was 8 and I took him and his cousin to see Elton John here in Houston. My son sat with his hands over his ears a lot of the time as he thought it was too loud! Growing up in England was fantastic as I got to see a lot of bands/singers before they became famous. Elton John, when he was just a piano player, Rolling Stones, performing in local pubs and Rod Stewart before he even started singing and was just one of the crowd. Good times and great memories.

I think the 'stand-in' is the guy that is playing him in the new movie (Rocketman). They are scenes from the movie.

I’m going to make a post over in the “not bulldog talk” regarding the high quality of English movies, BBC ETC.

He’s on tour or going on tour...so you might see him again. I have a funny feeling this will be his last...

I really liked his old stuff when he and Bernie Taupin were in their hay-day. Some of the best music ever.

Have you seen the documentary on Two Rooms?

No, I haven't. Just listened to a few tracks from it, all so good. My favourite album of his is Tumbleweed Connection. Brilliant and I never tire of it.

Look it up...basically it’s how 2 guys that never wrote music together. Bernie lived in NY n EJ in UK. Bernie ships the poem/lyric/words n EJ composed the music to the lyrics... all this was done with a few days or just weeks... there’s more to the documentary.. interesting.

We have hijacked this thread!

Bernie is a Lincolnshire lad and comes from just a few miles away from where I am from. He moved to the States in the mid-70s. Elton John is from Pinner which is 7 miles from where I went to school. I was close to two major talents and had no idea at the time! Bernie was hitting the pubs in Lincs and I was hitting the pubs in London when I saw EJ playing the piano!! Amamzing what incredible music they came up with, a match made in heaven for sure.
