Elton John Stand-In Entertains Neighbours

Written by Chief Editor.

For 15 years, Adam Chester has subbed for Elton, performing the older man's parts in rehearsals with the Rocket Man's band. But with the COVID-19 pandemic, Adam had to find another gig.
 
So he has been performing classics from Elton's Crocodile Rock to the Beatles' Hey Jude for his masked neighbours, who watch from a safe distance. 
 
They call this ''Quaranchella,'' which has been an incredible experience, according to Chester's wife Maria, who serves as his road crew along with their two teenage sons.
 
''It kind of organically happened because he needed to play, and it's been evolving.''
