Elton has congratulated Biffy Clyro for topping the UK albums chart with A Celebration Of Endings.
This is the third No. 1 for the band in seven years.
Frontman Simon Neil was a guest on the latest Rocket Hour, and Elton noted that they've stayed together for eight albums.
He also thinks they perform as if they're 19 years old.
While the songwriter ''might have a few years on them,'' it's still a feeling he can relate to.
Before the interview, Simon told The Scotsman that he'd be on Elton's show and recalled the star's appearance at Rugby Park 15 years ago.
''He's probably one of the only actual global icons that's ever played a gig in Kilmarnock. Doing a gig in Killie! That blows my mind,'' he declared.
