Above is a photo of this Web site's subject, wearing a ''Captain Elton'' logo on his sleeve.

This was the first time he took the Red Piano extravaganza to the NIA, but not the last.

He returns on December 16.

Red Piano designer David LaChapelle said: ''The show is a collage of all the outrageous and beautiful images Elton has been responsible for in his career. I just wanted it to sparkle and shine and just be lush - almost edible, like looking at a candy store. Elton has had a lot of fun. There have been some sad parts in his life, but when hes on that stage I think that he loves it. This was a way of showing that love of performing and pay tribute to it.''
