Elton's Fans Include Leader of Russia

Sir Elton's music is "of very high quality," Russia's president, Dmitry Medvedev, wrote on his Twitter micro blog on Sunday after catching the singer's gig in Moscow.

"Just been at Elton John's concert. Very serious work, of very high quality - almost three hours of live music," Medvedev tweeted.

Elton had invited the president, "a true fan of modern rock music," as he called him in his message of November 25, to his St. Petersburg show on December 13, rather than the Moscow event, but Medvedev apparently decided not to wait another day.

"You are a true fan of modern rock music that unites people from all over the world, regardless of their racial, political and religious views. I'll be very grateful if you will accept my invitation," the Rocket Man's message read.
