Sir Elton John slapped Sir Rod Stuart on the cheek for criticizing his tour.
Road labeled Elton’s 300-day farewell tour as “dishonest,” saying it “stinks in ticket sales”, while he said he would never announce his retirement because it was not “rock and roll.”
In a new paperback edition of his autobiography, Mi, Elton writes: “I do not feel the need for a lecture on the toughness of rock and roll from someone who has spent most of the last decade traveling through the great. A little Christmas with an American songbook and a happy self. “
Before adding: “What’s more, I thought he had cheekbones, complained about promoting a tour, promoting his own tour while sitting on a TV show.”
Responding to his comment, Rod said: “Elton doesn’t like me now. I was in order. Okay, but out of order … they [the show’s producers] Make sure you are drunk before you go. The four big shots of dirty vodka hit me all the way back because I was a butcher. I think 300 dates in three years makes me money. Look, I know where he comes from. He had two children very late in life, but I plan my tours around my kids. I think he will miss it. I can not wait for the next show. “
Elton was disappointed to fall along the road.
He shared: “I did not know what I was going to do to upset him so much.
