In a candid interview with The Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine, Elton, who had an appendectomy last month, reveals the full horror of his health drama and how he ignored the symptoms and continued his gruelling performance schedule.
The songster also admits his feelings of helplessness when it came to the deaths of Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston.
‘'I wish I could have helped her,’ he says of Amy.
‘'I remember seeing her and just seeing everything that was going to happen and knowing there was no one there to stop it.'’
