Long John Baldry tells the New Zealand media: “Elton John, I wasn’t so sure. He was an extremely good piano player and a not too bad singer, but all the other things, such as the image and the on-stage persona which made up part of his aura, they weren’t there.”

Fans will recall that Northwood Hills pub landlord George Hill once famously told Elton to stick to his day job rather than take up showbusiness.
