Tower Records is celebrating 30 years on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. Happy birthday from EJW.com to the shop that Elton John visits so frequently that he was made an honorary employee last spring.

 

In 1995, Elton John and Bernie Taupin made a rare joint appearance that attracted 2,000 people to a midnight signing promoting Made in England. Despite a driving rain, the duo arrived 40 minutes early, and when the scheduled departure time arrived with 800 fans still outside, Elton and Bernie soldiered on until 4 am.
