Elton has urged his fans to support their local independent record stores during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
Posting a video message on Instagram, Elton said that his local shop, Rough Trade West in Ladbroke Grove, is his favourite, and also praised Sydney’s Red Eye Records.
“Everything about records are magical to me and have been for the whole of my life,” he said.
“If I hadn’t have been Elton John one of the greatest things I’d loved to have done would be to have my own record store and sell records to people. It’s just something involved in the magic of it" he added.
