Bernie Taupin was at the first preview of Lestat, according to the New York Post. So was his seventies roommate, Alice Cooper.
The pair, who have kept in touch through the years, visited backstage with the musical's star, Hugh Panaro.
Hugh tried to bite the rocker's neck for a publicity photo. But Alice told him, ''You wouldn't want my blood, trust me. I haven't had a drink in 25 years, and you'd probably still get drunk off it.''
